MIKEMC...

If you hit a site where you have JAVA applet using Netscape Communicator that might be the case.  Java is very nice applets but force browsers to react differently and therefore lead them to crash.

When you come to this instability your system gets affected and my hog your connection.

If you need more detailed info, I would require more feedback about your system, and browser used.

Hope this helped

No, Java has no effects on the disconnecting problem.  This could be due to a number of other things.  It could be the modem, it could be the dial up networking that is not sending the proper shutdown, and it could be another application running in the background that is conflicting with dialup networking.

We would have to start, a troubleshooting session to disable every application and test the system. (to split between Software or Hardware conflict)

You could do that, just hit the CTRL+ALT+DEL and terminate all your apps EXCEPT for Explorer and Systray. Now test your system, I would recomment a HARD reset on the computer everytime you do a different test.  "A hard reset=RESET BUTTON or SWITCH OFF then ON)
