I hope this will help although I use XP - If you can highlight your ISP icon in Internet Connections and right click, you should see Properties. Under the connection tab I have a little box which is ticked for always redial when a connection is lost. You may have the same facility in your OS. There are also several other options to prevent connections being dropped.

thanks watchful, I've got the same facility on my ME but I would prefer it not to disconnect in the first place. I've had a worg with my ISP and they are thinking it is something to do with the new modem the Evesahm fitted last week, apparantly mine is a v92 which might need tweaking a little, something to do with adding a line to the stream?????. Don't know what they mean but it was to late to ring Evesham, will try tomorrow.
