    Ever since I downloaded updates for windows XP, I keep getting disconnected from the internet. I did not have this problem until after these updates. Everytime I get connected it only lasts a few minutes and kicks me off. I am typing this message offline and will paste it in. I don't know if I can stay online long enough to type everything. I used to have service pack 1 and now the updated version is service pack 2. Could that have anything to do with the problem. I would appreciate your help.

    I would recommend uninstalling Service Pack 2 and see if that helps. as it seems that SP2 can cause some major problems for some...

    Let us know!

    Hope this helps!

    In case someone is interested, I finally figured out the problem. I just turned off the firewall that was downloaded with the windows xp2 package. Now my computer does not kick me off the internet anymore. Hope this helps someone else if they have this problem.
    Thanks,
