    I just formatted my PC, I have ADSL internet by the way, before formatting my PC, I didnt have a problem with my internet running while playing a game, but since I formatted my PC, it keeps doing that everytime im in the game(not in the menu of the game, but when im playing). Why is that and what should I do??

    How bout more info. What's your operating system & what game(s) does this happen on?
    Hardware may not be the best place to post this question. More then likely it's an OS problem or game problem.

    Win XP, it happens to any game, Nhl 2k4 and Fifa 2k3, however when I use the same screen resolution of the game as the windows resolution, it works fine, but when I have it different, thats when the internet just disconnects. I reinstalled the modem and video drivers, but no luck

    Try to use the modem over a standard Ethernet connection, rather than its USB ports - which are not reliable.
