Background: I have a desktop acting as the server for my home network, using a switch. ATM only my laptop is connected to the network by ethernet. Problem: Starting a couple months ago, when playing World of Warcraft on the desktop, the dial-up disconnects. This is after about 30 seconds of logging on. It also disconnects when downloading. When playing on my laptop, the connection holds, and I can play for hours. I thought it was the modem, so got a new one. Not it. I thought there was a virus, or something, so I ran several utilities. Still disconnects. I even bought another hard drive, formatted it, put on Winxp, same as the old hard drive, and it still disconnects. I've had the phone company check, and they say it's fine. I had the isp check their end, and they say it's fine. Any thoughts?
