    if you keep losing a signal, and it's not power surges, incoming calls, your phone line, etc etc, then it's either the internet provider or something actually wrong with the laptop. dialup is a pain to try to fix.


    it could be something as little as some setting on the dell that's turned on, limiting your online time. i'd start by completely uninstalling and reinstalling the modem and all your dialup software.

    Ya, I've been having the same problems lately. And like you mentioned there have been quite a few power outs, but wouldn't that turn off my pc?


    when I get kicked off I just turn my modem off then back on.
