View Full Version : Disconnect and Reconnect XP Pro

08-01-2003, 10:56 PM
I'm wanting to disconnect from the internet then immediately reconnect to the internet. So I would like to disconnect after 1:55:00 then reconnect immediately.

Any ideas of something which can do this? I'm only wanting it to happen in that circumstance though, I don't want it happening when the net gets disconneted for other reasons.

OS is XP Pro.

A good, loud alarm clock

ummm an alarm clock won't quite cut it I'm sorry.

I can do it myself when I'm at the computer, but when I'm out I can't do it manually. The reason for wanting to is that after 280hrs of usage for the month my ISP reserves the right to kick(and lock out for 10m) me when I've been connected for more than 2hrs in a peak time. So I figure, disconnect beforehand and reconnect.

There are plenty of ISP's around that don't have restrictions like that.

hmmm I may have to look into that idea.

Just this one is really fast and reliable. Apart from this.

Or i spose I could just spend less time online :rollseyes:

Here’s how you do it
Get a connection wizard (something that make you stay connected to you ISP)
And at the same time get a disconnecion wizard (something that makes you disconnect at a set time)

This way you will disconnect at a set time and the connection wizard will reconnect you

Now this is just a theory I thought of but it should work

Go to www.download.com you can get both programs here search “Connect” and “Disconnect”

Here are two links I found that may have a good or bad programs but give it a try
(both are free)


Remember I haven’t tried it but It may work

wow realy good idea sc0ut but i think "Get Right" allows you to disconnect and connect at set times

nah I haven't tried that yet sc0ut. I'm gonna give it another month. Try and limit my online time. See if I can make it last the month.
