Connection Keeper Maintains Idle Internet Alive
Some Internet Service Provider has a feature where it automatically terminates the Internet connection if it finds no data has been coming in or going out from a computer. The good thing about this feature is at least the ISP is aware of keeping an idle computer out from hackers reach when they are not in-front of the computer. However, it can be annoying if you are taking a break and don’t want to reconnect that changes your dynamic IP address. One easy and automated way to keep your connection alive is by using Connection Keeper.
Connection Keeper is an invaluable time-saving tool for dial-up users. This free program simulates Internet browsing (at a random interval) to prevent your connection from appearing idle, thus preventing your ISP from dropping the connection due to inactivity. Connection Keeper can also automatically close many types of popup windows, such as those asking if you wish to stay connected. And if the connection is lost, Connection Keeper can automatically dial back in, restoring the connection as fast as possible.
Connection Keeper still uses a pretty old user interface even though it has been recently updated. Nevertheless, it is still a very powerful application that is able to simulate online activity. Connection Keeper is free and works with all versions of Windows 95, 98, NT4, 2000, ME, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, and 7.
