Check to see if ISP modem speed connection matches your modem speed connection
Open the Modem Properties and check the following
Data Bits = 8
Parity = None
Stop Bits = 1
Now check the Call Preferences Box,if the last box is check that specifies disconnect after specific time limit,deselect this box.
Then you may want to check Internet Properties to make sure that you donot have call waiting enabled.

How 'bout something simple like updating virus defs and making sure you don't have a hybris virus sneaking around or adding a couple commas after the dial-up number so it pauses before the speed negotiation...

Acts like Hybris virus. Clean system and replace wsock32.dll file (must be done at DOS prompt at bootup and not hru windows dos prompt)
