QuestionHow to inhibit parent window from blocking when using CSocket/CTimeoutSocket Pin

I am trying to create a program in MFC that talkes to several wireless IP-routers on internet. Now and then will a router be disconnected, and when that happen will the parent window in my MFC program be blocked for a while, which is not acceptable.

The reason for this is that in my MFC program it should be possible for a user to send and receive commands to one of the router while the other routers is supervised (I sending a special command to these router to see if they is still up and running).

The problem is that if one of the routers is disconnected and my MFC program sends out a supervise command to this router will the main window be blocked which means that a user cannot use the parent window for 30 seconds or so.

I have tried to solve this with a worker thread but I could not invoke any CTimeoutSocket from this thread since the MFC program stopped working then.

So I tried to create a hidden modeless dialog and put all the CTimeoutSocket code in this dialog but when a socket is blocked for a while will not only the modeless dialog be blocket but also the parent window.

So have anyone any idea how I shall do to inhibit the parent window from be blocked?
