Dear Pc World,

I always end up getting disconnected on the internet when there's an incoming phone call. Can you suggest me a solution? I hope you guys can help me.

sounds like you have call waiting on your phone.. check the modem properties and put the disable code for call waiting in the option think it is *50 ,, not sure ring telecom, they will tell you

Call Waiting is your problem me thinks. . . .Either go through 'My Computer' or from your browser under 'tools' to 'Internet Options' . . .click onto the 'Connections' tab, then 'settings' then, the 'properties' box. . . . .In the 'telephone Number' box type in *52 infront of whatever phone number is there. . . . . .push all the relevant 'OK's on your way out and that should fix the problem.
