I spent 2 days with Dell on the phone trying to figure out why when using my laptop with Verizon Mobile Broadband card my Windows Live Mail loses the connection, I have to manually disconnect and reconnect the broadband card to send/receive emails after I have been connected a small amount of time. The final answer after checking all my settings with Live Mail was it was the broadband connection. I have been reading it is possible to set up a constant ping to keep connection alive to prevent this. What are the pros and cons and I need exact details how to do this and undo it if needed.
