View Full Version : How to schedule a dialup connection?

09-10-2005, 06:51 PM
does anyone know of a program that will connect to my isp and disconnect at scheduled times. I have a big download and I'm going away for a week and I want to have my computer connect to the internet at a certain time and also disconnect at a specified time. The program I'm using to download the file just stays running in the background whether i'm connected or not.

if anyone could help in this regard that would be great.

Most download managers, like Getright / freedownload manager, fresh download or something will disconnect, once the dl has finished.

Can't remember if u can set a time, for them to download.

Thanks but I have a few downloaders and I can't use them for this particular file.
I just want something that will connect and disconnect to the web at set times.

Some download managers also let u add extensions, so it picks it up.

What program are you using? And what kind of file are you downloading?

The program downloading the file is Azureus and it's a torrent file.
