Every time I or someone else picks up telephone handset while I am on the internet, the laptop disconects. Is there a way that this can be prevented and to only disconect via the laptop.
Thhank you.

I take it you are using 56K dial-up? Then this is quite normal. Lifting a handset degrades the carrier signal, and the internet connection will drop.
