Are you using a v92 modem? if so this technology has lots of problems and you can really say that it doesnt work. Tell your telephone company to disable call waiting on your line. This cured my problem as it send a wierd code to my modem that shut it down.

The wierd code is a discreet bleep every 5 secs, which some modems see as an error and disconnect to protect your PC.
