Default Internet Connection

My dial up connection sometimes just keeps on disconnecting automatically for some reason at random times, even after 5 mins of reconnecting.
After it disconnects it says Error 680 Cannot Find Dialtone

Does anyone know why is this?

Random disconnections can somtimes be linked to spyware 'hogging' your bandwidth, i suggest downloading a adware/spyware remover and seeing if that helps, try ad-aware its a good one.

Nuke i hate to say this. But if he didn't plug in the cord he wouldn't be able to get on. But maybe you meant if it's in well. Do you know of anyone with the same ISP check if they are having problems as well. After the spyware check.

I doubt its the spyware issue, sound like its a modem issue, lost connection or kill the line when it was connected... i would change the modem ..
