ADSL limited to 24 hours

I have an ADSL line (type: dial-up connection). The problem is that when the computer is connected for 24 hours exactly, it disconnects. What can I do to stay connected more than 24 hours ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

You will NOT be able to control this and have a constant connection.  Your provider is cutting you off due to the 24 hour limit that they have preset for their connection services.

What you may want to get is a route to put in place between your DSL modem and your workstation(s).  that way, the router can be configured to automatically connect after a disconnect.

Are you sure that's the cutting off by the provider, and not by Windows ? Because that's what I thought before, but I notice that the connection is dropped when the timer is exactly on 23:59:59 (and the time to initialize the connection is about 5-10 seconds)

Windows doesnt have a feature to cut you off in 24 hours.  That is controlled by your Internet Service Provider

Contact your ISP, As far as I know Windows only has idle timeout for actual dial up connections (some DSL use this to authenticate you into the network, if yours does check the settings)
