Reinstalled XP SP1, now I have Internet problems..

  WrathMaster2 21:41 10 Aug 2004

I recently reinstalled XP SP1, I reinstalled my modem (ADSL, made by MRI). I phoned my ISP and I got the correct modem settings.
I can connect just fine, but after a while, maybe 10, maybe 30 minutes, it disconnects for no apparent reason.
I turned off the auto disconnect feature.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
Thank you in advance.

Have you got call waiting on the telephone line? Could it be incoming calls are disrupting your connection, next time it happens dial 1471 and see if the time of the last call is the same time as the modem dropped you out.

Have you also installed IE6 SP1? This is a separate upgrade; might solve your prob.

Ok thanks, if you have a link to the download that would be helpful.
I know this is a common problem so sorry if I wasted any of your time.

Don't have the link but do a search on MS perhaps eveb Google will point you in the right direction. Got mine from a WinXP mag sometime ago. I just thought its worth a shot.
