John Gray Tech: Dodgy Modem? (4) Dodgy Modem? 16 Mar 02

My system keeps dropping off the server. Sometimes two or three times an hour. When this happens the screen info tells me my phone line is still connected, the timer is still ticking away, but for some reason it's not connected to the ISP.
To get re-connected I have to shut down to icon screen and re-dial the server. My son calls this a "hollow connection", whatever that is. How can I be connected and not connected at the same time? Is it just a matter of disconnecting the internal modem and hooking up to an external one ? Suggestions please.
