Your internet connection shouldn't normally be affected by others trying to phone you because they will get an 'engaged' tone. However, if you have "call waiting" enabled on your phone line, this can cause disconnections.

There should be a number you can dial to temporarily disable "call waiting" while you are online.

A friend of mine had exactly the same problem running Windows 98. The answering machine seemed to affect his connection as well as call waiting. His solution was to get broadband, which has solved the problem, but might not be what you either want or require.

Have you tried unplugging your telephone? Or if you cannot do this have you tried filters?...T
