New PC keeps dropping broadband connection

  Ive 10:07 05 Oct 2004

I have a new Tiny PC (Home 3200) running XP home sp1 and have Blueyonder broadband (Webstar modem) running Via VT6102 Rhine || fast Ethernet Adapter and the connection keeps being dropped by the pc, not the webstar modem. Then you have to reeboot pc to be able to connect again. This sometimes happens once every 2 hours or so and sometimes every ten minutes. Have tried without firewall no difference, tried new cable pc to modem no difference.Have downloaded update for the ethernet adapter from Windows update also.
PC is Celeron D 320, 512mb ddr ram memory.Anyone any ideas please.

I hade a similar problem a while back, Although, i was connecting via a USB connection. it turned out to be a chipset fault on the motherboard i had to update the chipset drivers for it to work.

I would do as Noelg23 has suggested first before u do anything though.
