lost internet connection

I have an account with BT Openworld.I keep on losing my connection every few minutes and have to re dial.
Any suggestions on what could be the problem

Have you got BT answercall 1571
or similar which will affect connection? What setting is checked under 'connections'?

It could be your modem or line. The best thing is to phone up BT Customers Services and ask them, as i had the same problem and they increased my gain! State your OS aswell.

Is the modem a V92? Do you have call waiting activated?

1571 no longer causes this problem.
