    I am using Windows XP Home edition and I have a Sprint USB Broadband Card,
    and I am wondering if anyone here would know how I could setup windows so
    that if this broadband card should drop its connection for any reason,
    windows would automatically restart the broadband cards program or drivers
    and reconnect to the network and establish the connection again. I have seen
    this done on computers at work with a program where if you close it down it
    will immediatly open the program back up again, but i dont know how they are
    doing it. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to go about
    doing this with the broadband card?

    Thanks much

    Doug

    There probably is however

    Sprint probably has Bandwith limits and connect time limits
    Even if they don't clearly say them.
    Bandwith I'm sure they do but connect time?

    And may detect this extended Connect time with no Data.
    They may call this abusive use of equipment\services

    Just to warn in advance
