U.S.R. 56k Performance Pro / Disconnect Problem

U.S.R. 56k Performance Pro / Disconnect Problem

U.S.R. 56k Performance Pro / Disconnect Problem

Hi there...

Here is my problem:
After using the internet for any given amount of time (5 minutes to 24 hours) my modem will disconnect. However, the "Modem" icon doesn't report being disconnected (it just sits there thinking it's online, but picking up the phone proves the line isn't busy). I've been having this problem for some time, and it's gets insanly worse when I play certian games, mainly Americas Army. I can't stay on for more than about 20 minutes (max I was online was 2 hours, but that happened once). I have no idea what is causing this and if I could get broadband today, I'd sell something. But broadband isn't an option where I live!

Help! Ahhh!
