Is there anyway I can stay connected to Suddenlink Free Education Server, with my Win7 wireless connection?
If there is no activity for more than a few minutes, it bumps me off. Then it takes me too long to connect again. It is a busy server I guess.
Would a flash icon or animated gif on my first browser page keep me connected? I am hoping for a solution to keeping me connected...Can anyone help?

My son is connected to Suddenlinks Free Education server for the University of North Carolina. If his browser is inactive for just 2 minutes, it will bump him off the server and he will have to sometimes wait several minutes before he can connect again.
I was hoping that there would be something he could do to fool the server into thinking he was active all the time. Maybe a search bot or java script or something... Does anyone understand what I am saying?

the time out on this connection is there for a reason. its a free service so they don't want people just staying connected all day using their bandwidth for no reason (or for downloading music or whatever). putting something in place that would keep the connection alive is probably against their terms of use.
