dialer timeouts

Is there away to adjust the amount of time before the ISP timesout and drops the line.   I am not having the problem but a friend who uses MSN and Everyones is having quite a bit of trouble with it.

Click Start-Settings-Control Panel
Double Click Modem
Highlight your modem you are using and click properties.
Click the connection Tab
Down the bottom is a check box labeled
"Disconnect a Call is idle more than []min"
You can either set this number higher or uncheck the box.

If this setting is already unchecked and you are still experiencing a disconnect over a short period of time I would contact your ISP and ask if they have a server side timeout in place. If they do perhaps you can kindly ask them to increase or remove it. Afterall you pay the bill :)

Good Luck
