    Hi! I'm running 10.4.8 on a MacMini with -- tragically -- dial-up service. In trying to fix a connection problem the other day, I snooped around in some areas of my computer that I normally stay safely away from, but I don't believe I actually changed any settings.

    It turned out to be an error on the part of my ISP and all is well now... except that ever since then, I am stopped in my tracks every 30 minutes by a popup message from Internet Connect that tells me I'm still connected to the internet and asks whether I want to disconnect or stay connected.

    Every. Thirty. Minutes. AUGH!

    I've searched the preferences and can't find anything that seems to switch this obnoxious little message off... but surely there must be a way. Can anyone enlighten me, please? :confused:

    Many thanks...

    Oddly enough, I got my answer from someone on a cat-lover's site! In case anyone needs to know, there are some settings buried under Network/Modem/PPP/PPP Options that allow you to turn that message off. :)
