My DSL keeps disconnecting every 4 to 8 minutes, sometimes a little longer. Trying to re-connect is a long effort, and eventually I connect. My ISP said it was not an issue with them, they tested their lines. I use an ethernet cable that goes straight into my computer, I do not use a DSL modem. My network adapter is a 3Com Gigabit LOM (3C940), part of my motherboard, right? I usually have a local area connection and a DSL connection on, they both must be on in order to connect to the web. Is this the issue? Advice? LOL The driver on my network adapter (3C940) is from 2003. Should I update?
