There is no time to set unless your ISP kicks you off after a certain time. How long are you able to stay on before you get disconnected?

Perhaps you should get a download manager, so after getting kicked off, you can resume the download.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

It might be that you need to put in a code to stop other phone use. Some incoming calls will shut down the dial up.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Jefro brings up a good point, I forgot about incoming calls and dial up. Not sure where your from but if your in the US I believe dialing *1170 before you dial your ISP will block incoming calls.

Line is being used for dial up only a OUTBOUND call can interrupt the line.

Inbound gets busy signal [assuming no call waiting on the line]

I used to keep an explorer window open with a web page up with flashing advertizements seem to keep the connection live though the suggestion of a download manager is an excellent one.

Bringing up computing.net should be enough to keep the connection live

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I had dial up for maybe 10 years before they offered dsl.

I had to disable incoming calls with a number sequence before each time I used dial up. Incoming calls would dial in past the the modem if I didn't use that code.

Incoming calls do not get a busy signal unless you use that code. My line knew the difference between a data fax and voice call.

See ATT's web site for that number sequence or try *70 or 1170 maybe. I don't remember what that number was but it took me a long time to find it before. May not be published anymore.
My neighbor had dial up longer and he may have it written down on his modem still. I know that because I told him how to prevent this issue and wrote it on the modem.

Start with one clue and see if it works was my suggestion. I never had call waiting and I still had to use that feature.
