Where is the disconnect occurring? At the server or ADSL modem? If the

I'm almost sure that the adsl modem tells the controlling software of
any status change, such as the connection going down and the cause.

Another keep alive might be to do DHCP requests. That's simple enough
to do. The dhcpcd -l option can be used to set a lease time independent
of the server. So, if set to 3600 seconds, it would make a request
every hour.

which is one hour (top) that the server is unreachable.

If the network daemon can not be told to keep the connection alive no
matter what, then you have to run a ping daemon or a host query or
anything, perhaps every minute. And that's a kludge.
