    Make sure that you got the latest drivers for the USB modem -
    Also put in a line fault with your telephone company (usually a free service) to come out and check the quality of the line.
    If all else fails - get rid of the USB modem and use a good internal modem (external is a little more expencive).
    USB modems use in built software that is not as stable as Hardware modems - they are more likelly to drop off if the line quality changes even slightly.
    Go for an internal modem with Motorolla chip set - I have found them really good and very cheap.
    Cheers ...
