Get disconnected from your ISP frequently? Try this:
Go to Modems in Control Panel (Start > Settings > Control Panel)
From Modems select Properties, then the Connection tab
Click the Advanced button
In the Extra settings dialogue line, enter S10=50
This will force the modem to stay connected without a carrier for up to 5 seconds

I think an easier solution would be to rid yourself of that pesky dial-up connection in the first place.

Most isp's over here will cut your connection after a period of inactivity, even with broadband

I'd stay away from the dial-up connections. To many risky problems can affect your connection that can't be hassled with in contrast to a cable connection. Just my two cents.
