For some reason my internet connect on my ibook will ask every once in a while if I want to stay connected or not.
Where do I go to disable that?? I've done it once before on my eMac but I don't remember where I went...
Thanks.

Ok, Just checked on mine. Open System Preferences, then click on Network then on Internal Modem, then on Configure then on PPP Options. The 2nd one down says Prompt every 30 Minutes to maintain connection. Uncheck that and it will never ask nor disconnect you or change the time to something more. I keep it unchecked.

Hope that helps you out.
