I don't think a tweak will solve your problem if your modem is frezing, I would suggest that this may be down to your modem drivers or problems with Tiscali. Perhaps you could go into more detail about what happens?

what speed are you supposed to connect at? an avg of 589.6kbps for a 600k connection is fine and if you have 512k say nothing :-)

if you have a 1meg connection then somethings amiss.

as above check you are using the latest drivers for your modem and motherboard chipset.

get windows all up to date aswell click here

run a check for spyware with adaware and spybot just in case click here click here

the tcp optomiser click here should adjust your reg settings to get the best from your connection.try the above first though.
