Disconnects can be caused by noisy lines, damaged components on or in the modem or with some services such as call waiting. It can also be caused by an incompatibility between the modem calling out and the one receiving.

Sometimes updating the firmware helps. It's also weird, but I've seen cheap modems that connect much more reliably than expensive ones.

Check with your ISP and find out what modems they're using and if there's any known "issues" with your Motorola.

You may want to check and find out the version of the driver currently installed for the modem.  You can do this by going into the Control Panel, then into Modems.  Clicking on the Diagnostics tab, highlighting the COM port that the Motorola modem is on, and then clicking More Info.  You will find the driver version in the RESPONSE column in the that window.  Look through these, most likely it will be in ATI3 or ATI5.
This website will give you an idea of what the latest drivers are and what the newest available drivers are.

 One of the main issues with network wires is that you never have enough.  You run plenty and plan for the worst case but you still end up needing more.  What many people do not realize is with 10BaseT and 100BaseT (but not 1000BaseT) networks you …
