If you get frequently disconnected (the modem hangs up) after being connected for only a few minutes try these steps:
- Make sure all the cables are plugged in and are not loose.
- Reboot your computer.
- If rebooting doesn't work, and you can hear static on your phone line, or others can hear static purchase an EMIRFI (line noise) filter from a store like Radio Shack.
