Long shot - Remove the modem from Device Manager and let the computer reload the drivers when you reboot.

How immediate is "immediately". Is it possible that the computer is checking for emails and then disconnecting because of a setting in OE?

Another question - could this be a firewall problem? What firewall and antivirus are you using?
