Modem connection

Why would my modem disconnect while I am still using the internet?  This happens at least once every two hours.  I've tried adjusting my idle time, but this doesn't seem to help.  The longer I am on the more it cuts off.

If you are in chat rooms It does not detect this as internet activity. Go to your mail program and set it check for new mail every xxx minutes. This will trigger internet activity and est any timers that are kicking you off.

Does your telephone-line have "call-waiting" alerting?  Is it enabled/disabled?
