Hello.. my cuz pc seem to have this recurring problem with her internet connection. Once connected it will automatically disconnects after 1 or 2 minutes. I have checked OutLook Express, MSN, Bios, Internet Explorer's connection settings and all seems to be OK. What else am I missing? Please help..this is getting irritating!

Thanks in advance.

Have you checkd OE/Options/Connections
If it is set to Hangup after sending and receiving and is is also set to check for new messages every 2 mins then you will get a disconnect.

Under the Dialup connections for your ISP there is a setting for disconnecting after so many minutes idle time. A setting of ten to fifteen minutes is not silly if you are on a limited plan.
