The Linux box uses a wireless card to connect to the router. But that doesn't get disconnected, its the actual adsl connection. It has to be something to do with how Linux because I could leave it on for days with Windows and it wouldn't disconnect.
Basically they told me there was a variable for setting the 'idle time' which I was not aware of, so they said set it to 0. They told me to set the MTU value to 1400. I don't know what that does, but it seems to work. Lastly I had to enable 'dial on demand' which I havn't done yet.
