this has nothing to do with the kernel, so your choice of mailing list
is sub-optimal. I'll answer here anyway.

My problem is, that I need a nearly useless service ('ping' or
'fetchmail' for instance) which starts network requests regularly so
that the DSL connection starts and stays alive.
Is there a recommended way to start DSL without any network request,
so that it's nearly always on? In openSUSE documentation I only
found two alternatives: always-on and manually. Both are not ideal.
(I know, that the provider breaks the connection every 24 hours. The
router should reconnect than.)
If you put it to always-on (I guess that would be "DEMAND=no") and leave
"AUTO_RECONNECT=yes", doesn't it auto reconnect after the provider drops
It's a long time since I used modems/ppp other than 3G in my Linux box,
so I don't know the exact details, but it would seem logical.
another way would be to put idletime to 90000 seconds, but you still
need to start the connection somehow with a ping or similar.
