Sometimes when I am on the net, my computer freezes up and I have to restart.  When I restart, my modem is still working, but I can't go to the net again.  I have to wait for several minutes before the modem disconects.  Is there a way to prevent modem from disconecting and for me to go to the net again after I restart my computer?

No, assuming that you still have a valid connection to the internet after rebooting (which I doubt), you won't have RNAAPP running, which is the program that runs in the backgroud when you connect to the internet.  You should really investigate the problem with your system locking while on the Internet, you may have a modem/mouse conflict or some buggy video drivers.

Ok, I'm giving you this answer as a comment in FAITH that you'll reject DavidR's Answer.

This sounds simple, but here it is: when you restart the computer, actually TURN THE COMPUTER OFF. Leave it off for 3 sec then turn it on. Your connection WILL be lost (since your modem lost power and has no way to keep the phone connection alive)

Dmitriy, You DIDN't ask how to reset the modem, you asked "Is there a way to prevent modem from disconecting and for me to go to the net again after I restart my computer?"
If you think my answer to the ACTUAL question is wrong, please comment.
jlove1 and azure, OK, my answer has been rejected now answer the question that is posted, not some imaginary one that isn't.

same way as last time....
Dmitriy, Just a little background.
when you bring up your connect to window, do a CTRL- ALT - DELETE and notice that rnaapp is running.  If you highlight it and click end task, your connect to will disappear
