I thought the Modem Access Code was a kind-of password protection so that no one but the modem owner could change, say, the ISP info/password. It looks like I don't understand it.
It is protection against unwanted changes, once you use the code after a certain amount of time you must enter it again to access some pages.
Every time you use the code entries are made in the modems log, looking there will give you an idea of how long your sessions last.
I must say I've never had the modem act as you describe.--
