Rasputin is a lightweight networking tool developed with a single goal in mind: to help you simulate network activity for making sure that your Internet connection remains alive. It is quite annoying to lose your browsing sessions or media files during the downloading process, and manually reconnect your computer in order to continue your Internet session.

The tool can help you get rid of this task, as it is able to send signals at irregular intervals in order to avoid Internet disconnections that may appear due to inactivity.

This unobtrusive program runs quietly in the system tray, so it doesn’t interfere with your work. Basically, it proves to be extremely easy to work with this utility, as it automatically accomplishes the process for keeping your Internet connection alive.

When it comes to configuration settings, you are allowed to enable or disable the program, show or hide the app from the screen, run Rasputin at Windows startup, reveal notifications when the tool runs in a hidden mode, as well as pick the Internet access, namely broadband or dial-up.

During our testing we have noticed that Rasputin carries out a task very quickly and without errors. It remains light on system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered. The lack of configurable settings makes it an ideal application for rookies who are looking for a nothing more than an easy-to-handle layout and automatic functions.

To sum it up, Rasputin seems to be the right choice in case you are looking for a simple-to-use application that comes bundled with a handy set of functions for keeping your Internet connection alive. Thanks to its intuitive layout, it is suitable for beginners and professionals alike.
