Internet connection keeps disconnecting

By jwarnich ·
I'm using XP Pro SP2, Internal 56k modem.
Once connected to the internet, sometimes not even a min later it auto disconnects, why I have not been able to trace.
Have tried an external 56k serial modem with slightly more success, thought that this was the answer, except auto disconnected after about 7 minutes

Hope someone could help

This is generally the result of a setting for the Modem

That turns it off after either a certain amount of time with little traffic or some other thing.

You need to look i n both the Modem Settings and disable the Auto Disconnect as well as some of the other programs where you need to disable the Auto Disconnect in them.

Start off with the Modem Settings in the Control Panel though and go through all of the available settings to make sure that they are right.
