Hi guys !

I have very poor broadband service and it disconnects every now & then. I need a reconnect software which redials and connects to net when dis connected. I use PPPoE mode for net connection.

In Windows I used ReConnect [ link ] hoping for similar software in Mac

thank you in advance

Your initial request is a bit confusing. You say you have broadband service and then ask for an application that will redial for you? Do you have broadband that requires a dialup?

If you're asking for something that can reconnect to the net automatically if the connection fails... I searched and could find nothing that works for Mac OS X. The auto dialers including the one you linked to are all for Windows.

I suppose you could possibly write an applescript or use automator to do it for you. You might wish to pursue those as a possibility.

Yes, I actually I need a software which re-connects when net fails / dis connects. Sorry for confusing statements.

and I don't know anything about scripts or automator, I am totally new to Mac

and thank you for replying

I'll search around and see if I can find a pre-written apple script which will work. There are some real sharp script writers who have freely published their work on the net, however, I don't know if we can find one that you need.

If I find something, I'll post it to you in this same thread.

EDIT: I just found this LINK as I began to search. Take a look and see if there is anything useful. There are other links at the bottom of the page including a repository of scripts from Apple. Hopefully, you can find something that will work for you.

After Googling little bit, I found this script, but I am not getting how to use this.

Also how have you set up broadband. You need an inline filter for each and every phone/fax connection in your house/flat/unit, except the line where your modem/router connects. Also wall phones need a filter which mounts on the wall under the base of the phone.

Having no or insufficient filters will cause drop outs each and every time a phone rings or static comes down the line.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
