It's always the same:

You set a file to download, and rise from the computer to busy yourself with other important matters(like taking a dump)only to return later to a disconnect message, along with a failed file window.

Does your dial-up ISP require you to be surfing the web every few minutes or it disconnects?

Now, you can set your file(s) to download, and use Keep Alive to maintain your internet connection, while you go about your business...away from the computer! The best part about using Keep Alive is, there is no software to download! None! It's simple, and easy to use!

If you already have a software program that says it will keep your connection alive, chances are that it won't any more! Several ISPs have recently made changes to monitor your web surfing activity, rather than data transfer. Simple pings or sending garbage to and from a site might not work anymore.

It's time for Keep Alive v.1.0 !

The simple solution.

How it works.

When activated, Keep Alive jumps from one webpage to the next. Each website is kept within the same site as the Keep Alive webpage. It's a series of redirections that continues in an unending loop. To spice it up a bit, we've timed redirections differently, and added an image here, and text there. We will also be adding additional pages to the mix all the time! So content will change, so a pattern isn't permanently established. With Keep Alive, you can click once, and let your system browse the site throughout the day and night, while you download your files, and stay connected.

After your file download is complete, press the STOP button on your web page browser. This will deactivate Keep Alive. To restart Keep Alive, begin your file downloads, and return to the Keep Alive home page.

Keep Alive is only recommended for users who have a dial-up ISP that disconnects them in a certain period of time (minutes,hours) for not browsing the web (inactivity).
