    Hello! On my other computer I have dial up connection to the Internet. When I go online it connects but after just a few seconds or minute it automatically disconnects!!! I cannot stay online! Could somebody please help me? It is not the phone line because I have plugged a phone into the socket and it works fine. Is it my modem? Or do I need to change something in the software? I would greatly appreciate any kind of help. Thank you so much!!

    Hi mpbrown,

    If you goto Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections >Settings > Advanced ...if there is a check mark against "disconnect when connection may no longer be needed" remove it.

    This link has similar info: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=153965

    1069: Thank you for your response but that was not the problem. The box was not checked. Any other ideas?? Thanks!

    I had something like that with my internet. We had a faulty connection box that connect to the wall and to cable box. You could check that... See if it helps at all.
