if you go to the properties of your dial up connection it will have a disconnect if idle
uncheck this. you can also access this through the tools of your web browser

It disconnects randomnly, no set pattern to it. For example when I played WoW it disconnected or sometimes it happens when i'm just browsing.

It's al so just started in the last few days. I haven't installed any new software in that time. I've also run a virus and spyware check and it came up with nothing.

I would check with your ISP for any problems before continuing.

Sometimes it doesn't disconnect, but no pages will load and the weird thing is I can't open my network connections or click the networking tab on task manager when this happens.

It's still randomnly disconnecting. There is a power and a link light on my modem. The power one stays on but the link light goes off, then either blinks and reconnects again or stays off and I have to restart. Also this time when it disconnected I lost all my bookmarks >:tazz:
