Modem keeps disconnecting

I just got this computer and am using the same dialup ISP I had before with no problems. Now, the connection keeps closing, sometimes after a few minutes, sometimes after as much as an hour, sometimes during downloads. I have unchecked everything that appears related to disconnecting in the ISP program and in the modem (Conexant), also tried reducing modem speed. I have unchecked everything in OE (which I don't use anyway, can I delete it from the computer?).
Any ideas on how to stay connected?
