What browser are you using?
Probably IE, try going to tools, internet options, connections, click the ISP you use and click settings, advanced, uncheck disconnect when idle and disconnect when no longer needed.

Hope that helps :-)

Both of it already uncheck by default.
But what does it mean by:

try to connect ... times
wait ... seconds between attempts

for the 1st blank it is filled by 10
2nd blank by 5

sometimes can connect for more than 30 minutes also.

That is for if the modem dials and does not connect.

Try this:

Start the computer and hit F8 several times until the new menu comes up,
choose safe mode.
After it loads up you want to go to device manager
(right click on my computer, choose properites, device manager tab at the top)
remove all modem devices,
any "ghost" devices (ones listed more than one time and are not listed in normal mode)
and any that have yellow !'s, ?'s or red X's.
Restart

have you contacted your ISP about this problem?? I had similar problems with my ISP, but on contacting them, the problem was found that the modems at their end didn't like handshaking with mine correctly. With a firmware update to my modem it now works fine.
