Dialup internal Modem hangs up

Hi all:

Thanks for reading this issue.

the problem is that evertytime I dialup with the internal modem, the connection would last for a few minutes and then modem hangs up/freezes. I right-click with the connection icon on the system tray to disconnect but nothing happens. I have to restart the system again, this is a recent issue. I have tried two other internal PCI modems and even turned on the onboard modem with the same result. My laptop on the other hand will keep the connection without any problems.

Its really strange and im out of ideas as to the issue. I reinstalled winxp pro SP2 and same connection issue. i checked outside line and everything is fine. Default internet settings have always been used without any problems not any need to make modifications.

im down to either the power supply? maybe its going bad and would cause this anomoly?..the motherboard?. ot sure.

the phone line is fine,no noise. No spyware involved nor viruses.

here are my specs:

winxp pro SP2
700 Mhz celeron
400 watt pwr
brookings motherboard(BIOS updated)
TrendNET 56K v/92 internal modem(updated drivers)

any help is appreciated

thanx all
