Is it an USB modem?

Does the modem turn off?

If the above is true you may need a self powered USB hub, similar to this one:

Check the following settings:
1. Start Menu > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > "Connection" tab.
2. Select the Internet Dial-Up Connection and click "Settings" button then "Advanced" button in the new dialog.
3. Make sure that the following options are UNchecked:
   "Disconnect if Idle for ...  seconds"  and  "Disconnect if connection is no longer needed".
4. Make sure you "Apply" the changes and reboot the system.

You say, you are restarting to get back online.  Do you mean Rebooting the entire computer or just your Browser?

1.If the computer, I would say, look for Virus or spyware.
Start with the Security Tango and don't skip any steps.  Keep in mind there is no System Restore in Win98 so you do not have to turn that off.

2. Download and run winsockfix. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Network-Tweak/WinSockFix.shtml 
It fixes corrupt tcp/ip registry entries and rebuilds the other parts of tcp.


If no joy, Then we will do this step.
Download HijackThis from http://www.merijn.org/
