I've had this problem since I bought a new computer. When I connect to the internet through my provider (Clear) it only lasts a few minutes before I lose the connection. Anything from 1 minute to 10 minutes. Clear say it is my modem. I now have a new KTX USB 56 k modem and the problem is the same. The strange thing is that my old 33 modem in my old computer works fine. I know I am in a 'country' exchange and have cut down miodem speed to 57600 but the problem remains. Any suggestions?
