GNU Alive

https://www.gnu.org/software/alive/
Automatic login and keep-alive utility for Internet connections.

GNU Alive is a periodic ping program. It functions similarly to ‘ping -n -i PERIOD HOST’ (so if you are comfortable typing that at a shell prompt you probably do not need GNU Alive).

Documentation

Older releases (up through 1.4.0) included auto-login functionality for some (Swedish) ISPs can be found here. Note that it was previously called qadsl.
