Well here are a few questions:

Do you have a firewall/router?
When using Linux, do you usually have some program that always uses the net (f.e a irc client)?

The reason I ask this is because I know with my ISP if I am inactive for a few hours they turn down my Internet speed to give to people who will actually use it. I use to have to restart my computer to get full speed back up, thought it was just Windows Anyway, my firewall/router changed that, because it would I guess trick them into thinking I'm still using the net.

Something like a IRC client may help, as it'll always be sending and receiving information.


Hope this helps

ok guys I really need help with this.

Im on mandrake 9.1 this is how my set up is.
2 nics in linux, 1 for dsl, other for gateway for other 2 xp pc's
not sure whats going on, but everytime the net (adsl) is on linux box little while later it dies, and wont start up, I take net out put it into xp and works perfectly never drops off.

I got people who can't use the net cause its always dying.

when i try and bring it back up by typing usual, adsl-start I get this:

..........TIMED OUT
/usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 194 Terminated $CONNECT "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1
this mean anything to anyone ?

I really dont understand why net dies so much from linux box when it has networked pc's to it, (not sure if it still dies, without networked pc's) didnt 2 days ago...

I dont have my connection set up to time out or for net to drop off when there is no activity...

also i should be able to adsl-start if net dies to bring it back, but no go.

Idea's/suggestions, Please.

Well I still think its what I said, maybe Windows does something to keep your connection alive ...

If thats not it you should probably check to make sure your network settings in Linux is set up right.
