My internet connection drops periodically whenever I start surfing the 'net.  At times, when I click on a link, I receive a "Connect Broadband Connection" dialog box popping up.  The internet does not work unless I click "Cancel" on this dialog box.  This is happening every time I use the internet.

I have Windows Vista Ultimate and I know my ADSL internet connection is running fine.  I had Windows XP before with no internet problems before.
Please see the attached screenshot of the dialog box.
