I set my router to keep the connection alive.
Connect on demand will terminate the PPPoE session when it isn't needed. Say you pop up explorer and browse to a webpage. Your router would then take a few seconds to authenticate which causes a slight delay. Since your modem is on, why not be connected? That's why imo, keep alive works best for me. It also gives me nice "uptimes" on the Verizon usage page!
I guess it comes down to how you want to handle your connection, but I'd set it to keep the connection alive.[text was edited by author 2001-12-16 07:18:24]
