Do you access your internet via modem? I think this may cause by the line connection but not problem from your system.

Try
a: Use a different connection/modem cable (plus remove any splitters/extension cables from the equation).

b: Test from a different phone socket in your house.

c: Phone your line provider and ask them to check the line for noise or increase gain (the general stuff for a connection problem).

All the problems didn't occur when i use my notebook with internal modem.and it has been few weeks, so i don't think it's because of the line

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

If you can actually connect to Internet, regularly, but line drops after only a short time, it is still likely to be a problem with the line causing it, even if another modem does not exhibit the same problem. Unfortuneately some modems are more sensitive to line problems than others. Would be useful to know exactly which modem you are using, but generally you are more likely to have a problem with an internal modem card, particularly the 56K HCF types. Sometimes new drivers can cure the problem, but I have occasionally had to give up on internal modems, and use an external one instead, particularly where location has meant using a long extention cable. Not sure why, but cardbus modems don't seem to have the same problems.

it might be possable that your modem is configured to dialup and connect and then disconnect after picking up your email.. so the time it connects for is the time until mail is checked for. I know that was an option with the software provided by one of my old ISPs. Just a possability... if this is the case either your ISPs software or you computer have these settings applied and turning off all the programs running in the background at startup may help you to resolve this.

Check running your computer on another phone line first though as suggested above and i will look in to other problems.

Griffon 1st suggestion is actually a really good one and could be releveant...

Are you using Outlook for your e-mail??
If so try going to tools/options/
and look for a setting that says something like 'disconnect after sending and receiving' - remove the tick if its there and that could be your problem solved...

Just checked the above out...

The path in Outlook Express is tools\options\connection and then look for 'hangup after send/receive'.

This may help...

On your desktop create a new shortcut with this in the command line:

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSINFO\MSINFO32.EXE"

Call it SYSTEM INFO (Win 98) and set it to RUN MAXIMIZED.

Click on it with your mouse and look at the TOOLS, especially the one
to repair Internet Explorer.  Other tools allow you to check for conflicts and stuff.

What version of IE are you running?  Check WindowsUpdate for patches and fixes.  Anytime you reinstall your Operating System, you'll need to download and apply all subsequent patches and fixes delivered via WindowsUpdate to fix known problems.
