On your internet explorer, go to your (Tools) tab then down to (Internet options), then to (Connections) tab. There is a property button marked advanced. If it is not there then the connection you are useing and the software it installed has fixed your connection time to disconnect after so much time after last key punched.
This tab was what AOL/internet companies used to disconnect the idle user from the network to free up server time for other users. The Verison software was probably the thing that dropped this little fix on you. So check there and you may find your answer to the problem. Chris
I am using Verizon Mobile office on my Gateway PC running XP pro. The phone is connected thru an USB cable and is connected to com port 4. It will connect to the Verizon network ok but will disconnect in 5 to 9 minutes. This work great for about 6 months, then the next day it started to act this way.
I have the same setup running on my Gateway PC XP home. The phone will stay connected until I disconnect it. Any suggestions what to check on the com port or setting will be appreciated.
