connection can not last

Hello,
I just installed slackware3.2 and use 'dip' log on to my isp.(and run 'slirp' there). After that,I can fire up netscape or use telnet on my local machine.
But my problem is that the connection is always dropped in a few minutes.(connection can only last about 3 minutes at most) I have no problem with trumpet winsock under win31 using same modem. Same problem with using minicom.

thanks for any help.
