The #2 means U have install the modem twice. Goto Control Panel-System-Hardware. Remove both of them. Then restart Ur Pc. Try that.

Are you sure its 'not' your ISP dropping the line.
Contact them to see if theres been any probs?

It just might be that you have selected "Hang up after sending and receiving" in OE>Tools>Options>Connection tab or you have configured a program to "Check for updates" and which then disconnects.

Phone up your PhoneLine providor not ISP then tell them to do a line gain check, BT do it but not sure about others!
