Some PPPoE service providers offer both limited and unlimited service. If you subscribe limited PPPoE service, then it is better to enable Connect-on-demand by clicking checkbox of Connect-on-demand and set Maximum Idle Time to whatever it is suitable for you. After you enable this function, your router will disconnect PPPoE service from your ISP when the time you set is passed unless you trigger router by any action to access Internet. If you subscribe unlimited time service, then it does not matter you setup this function or not. Connect-on-demand mechanism is used for save customers money. This feature forces router to disconnect connection, if the idle time of this connection is passed. If users always wish to keep connection alive, users can set Maximum Idle Time value to zero and check Connect-on-demand or not checking Connect-on-demand at all. Note: If the broadband router failed in automatic disconnect from internet, it seems there are still some packets try to go to the internet and the router did not idle exactly. Close all the program that may use the Internet ( MSN, ICQ, anti-virus program, any program about auto-update over Internet ) and set your browser default website to http://192.168.1.1 (To prevent accidentally triggering Internet connection) when you enable connect-on-demand function.
