I'm successfully using MyEnTunnel to forward traffic to a remote SOCKS-server. If I don't use the tunnel for a while the connection seems to turn stale, but doesn't fail, hence the browser waits for an answer. If I disconnect the SSH-connection and reconnect everything is fine again. Is there some way to send keep alive packages without requiring another tool? Or is there a good alternative tool? Any workaround is good.

Try setting the ServerAliveInterval ssh option. There should be an option ExecArguments in myentunnel.ini where you can add -o ServerAliveinterval=30. Your client should then send some package every 30 seconds to keep the server happy.
