internet disconnects

I have XP Pro and I did a pc restore recently. Now when I switch users the internet will disconnect. I do not log off, I just switch. I have a dial up ISP. It never did that before the restore. The internet also disconnects many times when switching from the email to IE in the same user account. What's going on? Any suggestions? Thanks

Control Pannel, Network Connections, Right click the connection, properties, advanced, check the box 'all users...'

Try this out.

Also check that the Send/Receive box doesn't have Hang Up After Collecting Message checked as well from Internet Explorer's Tools>Internet Options>Connection tab>highlight your ISP>Settings>Advanced tab that the connection is not checked to disconnect after x minutes etc.
