I have a PPPOE connection and it comes up this message that the connection is been idle and it's going to auto disconnect, even when its not IDLE! I can press to stay connected BUT sometimes i'm watching an online streaming for example and the message goes background, so I get disconnected! I did uncheck the boxes for the services in internet options and the power saving configuration of the network card but the message keeps coming up!

Open up command prompt by Start > Run > cmd > Enter, then enter

net config server /autodisconnect:-1

This should do it.

It did not solve the problem. I'm going to try some different drivers, see what happens. – user115206 Jan 25 '12 at 23:39

I had the same problem on my Windows 7 Professional system and the answer Bibhas gave did not work with me either: access was denied for the command.

I solved the problem the way described on this TechNet thread but with small modifications. This solution is based on the MS knowledge base article Q138365:

  • Start Regedit van find the Autodisconnect parameter in the registry under:


  • The value range is 0 to ffffffff hex (minutes). To disable Autodisconnect set it to ffffffff hex. The value -1 is not accepted, the value 0 makes the problem even worse. The highest possible value means that the connection will be disconnected automatically only after 8171 years.

  • Restart the computer

net config server /autodisconnect:-1

Works Fine. Make sure that there is no Space between : and -1.

This should have been an edit to the other answer. – Kevin Panko Sep 16 '14 at 4:14
