Automatic redialer?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My ISP has an annoying three-hour timeout on internet connections. Does anyone know if there is a way (utility/ app/ script, etc) of setting my Mac (running X 10.1) to automatically redial my connection after such a timeout and then continue a download while I am away from my computer or asleep?
Any info gratefully received
Thanks

The Blue Meanie

The MarcUK found a utility on Versiontracker called TurboInternet2.1 that you launch before you go online. I've only used it to resume downloads when my ISP dumps me off, but I understand it can also speed-up connections and do a couple of other neat things. BTW it was freeware.

The Blue Meanie thanks The MarcUK for his kind tip. He will definitely give TurboInternet a run for its no money
