On a web page, click tools, internet options, connections, look through the tabs for auto disconnect, usually properties for TCP/IP

It would still show as a connection, though may not have auto disconnect

From the link, run WinsockXPFix

Then check for a firmware upgrade for the router and also router drivers

Then look for later ISP software

As long as you have the access information for the router, ISP password etc, remove the ISP software, router software, network card software, and re-install it

You can also download this just before that then remove the above

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

At this point you can re-install the router etc

Click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
