I was getting all that has been mentioned.
Was a constant thing for a couple days.
Nothing today.

Do not get booted from the internet though.

John,

I'm wondering if there's a correllation between me being knocked off the internet and what you guys are experiencing. I'm an old fashioned person using AOL and a phone connection with their spyware installed. I'm wondering if this might be my problem.

Thanks for responding to this thread...I'll be watching this one closely.

      Rick are you getting completely (modem hanging up) disconnected  from AOL or just kicked off the site but still online?

          I get completely disconnected an awfully lot ..... I'd never considered whether it was only on LP, but it's mostly there.  Heck, I don't go more than half a dozen other places on the Internet, however.

          Does getting knocked off the web mean something different than just getting kicked off LP?

              It depends. The reason I brought it up was because Rick talks like it happens frequently. I had a situation a while back on my own system where it started disconnecting me every 5 minutes. (complete disconnection.) and that is very odd. Then I remembered that my Mail (Outlook Express) checks for mail every 5 minutes (this can be set to any amount of time). Somehow or the other I had clicked the option to "hang up after checking for mail" which was disconnecting me every 5 minutes. Now, Rick said he is using AOL and I haven't dealt with AOL for a long time but I was wondering if they had a similar setting after checking mail. It was just a shot in the dark...

                Bryan, thanks for responding. I gotta make this quick b4 I'm kicked off.. I'm being knocked off the internet and AOL has to log back on because it experienced problems but I'm not losing my phone connection. Any help will be really appreciated!

                  Bryan, just read your last message...I never made any mail settings other than default and don't use Outlook.

                    I don't know Rick, I was grasping for straws with that idea. If I come up with anything I'll give you a holler. I'm not very familiar with AOL anymore, and I like it that way...Wink 

                    Sorry, I couldn't help myself.... We use to call it AO(hel)L.

                    Best of Luck,

                    Bryan  :)

                        Bryan, thanks much...you're right about aohell. I just tried to talk to a humanoid and they weren't available. Took the rear entrance and went through billing questions live help. Well they must all be on va-ca because I couldn't get a humanoid to even take my money. But your suggestion is real good and if it works I'm sending you a $ 10 IL scratcher. I'll be in touch on that one.

                        You ARE the man!
