Keeping the connection alive?


I need something to keep my internet connection alive, such as a script. How can I make one, or where can I find one?

well, the quick and easy solution is to stick this in your rc.local file:

/bin/ping -i 60 -q www.yahoo.com > /dev/null &


Of course, www.yahoo.com can be substituted for anything you want. Don't forget the & at the end, this is important.
