How to avoid frequent broadband disconnections – Part 2

This is in continuation to my previous post regarding ADSL router disconnection. Although the ping  technique solves the problem most of the times, sometimes the problem might still recur. This is because  some people change the Windows XP’s default settings. The most commonly changed value is the number of  half-open connections, thinking that doing so might increase their download speed. On the contrary, it’ll  attract more number of trojans and worms, and will result in rampant disconnections. It’s advisabe to  keep this value to 10 itself (defualt). In case, you need to change it desparately, raise the value to  200 (max). Keep the value between 10 and 200 at all times. Couple this with the ping task, and you’ll  have a rock-solid ADSL connection.
