Where in the house is your PC placed? Is it possible that the power circuit your using also has another appliance on it that is cutting in/out, similar to what a fridge does. This might just be enough of a power surge to cause the connection to drop.
If your cable connection and modem settings turn out to be OK, then try running an extension lead from a different power circuit to your PC. If this cures the problem then plug your PC into a surge protector, [should be anyway to be on the safe side]. Then into the mains power.
Sometimes you will know this is happening if your speakers are on and you hear a faint, or loud even, spitting or cracking noise at intervals. j.
my phone line is ok, my pc is in the living room, on a single socket, i do hear crackling or spitting noises, sometimes, the Hang Up When Finished is NOT enabled now and is set to the right connections. will come back in a couple of hrs to see if this has worked thnx guys
the noises aren't from the phone its coming through the speakers, not very often and no i dont have call waiting. well, i have been online for a couple of hrs and only got disconnected twice, so i did something right lol thnx guys
