    To get a better reply, you may like to post:

    1. ISP (BT, AOL, NTL....)
    2. Connection type (56k, 0.5Mb Broadband etc.)
    2. Hardware (What modem model you're using)

      if you are on AOL, then its possibly a case of AOL being rubbish, either buy your own router, which will help, or change ISPs. AOL has this problem where every so often it forgets your existence. re-installing aol (after completely purging the system of it before) as well as cleaning all connections will help, an installing new locations is a quick fix, though it doesnt always work/last.

        Also, if you're using a wireless connection to a central router...then try temporarily connecting via ethernet or usb to it and see if its a dodgy wireless connection that messes it up.
