Problems with disconnectivity

  User-CDCF2885-6816-419B-B3140002FF3832B6 07:34 11 Oct 2007

I have Aol Broadband through a BT Voyager Adsl modem and while surfing continuosly get an message local area connection 3 saying a network plug is not connected. This then takes a while to reconnect and freezes the surfing. How do I stop this happening.

Could it be the line, I am in a block of flats?
Or a conlfict in networking as I seem to have a lot of disconnected and unenabled network connections?
Where can I get an idiots guide to networing and understanding the network control panel?

Can't you use the One Click Fixes that come with Aol to restore your connection?
