dial-up disconnects randomly

Can you help me determine if the reason for my dial-up connection to break is due to a damaged modem, or would it be due to a software issue?

Thanks,

Modem disconnects randomly

No, the modem's settings are not any different from previous settings (when it worked without disconnection).... no call waiting-- etc.

I need to determine if the random disconnection is due to a modem disfunction or if it is due to some internal/software issue.

Should I just go and buy a new modem?

You wouldn't believe it !

Internet explorer has the option of hanging up after retreiving e-mail <hang up when finished>

Guess what.... that option was checked; which meant that the connection to the internet ended after the mail was retrieved.

Once that option was cancelled, the connection stays on.
