Windows 7: How to keep RAS connections up on win7

How to keep RAS connections up on win7

Hello everyone, i'm connecting to internet via a fast UMTS modem.
I've a shared laptop in my house, so i'd like to connect the modem, put something on download, and then switch user back and forth WHILE my user is *still* downloading

Fact is, when you switch user in win7/vista, it automatically disconnects dial-up connections.. i've long searched for an hotfix to that, and i've found it for vista/windows 2008 server

Problem is, the Reg key isn't enough, it's also needed the hotfix... too bad the hotfix doesn't run on windows 7 (also cause it may have different versions!)

Anyone able to get an idea about what to hex edit, or any workaround for that annoying problem ?

PS: Just for information, i'm using the famous RTM build 16385 etcetc...
