    First off, install the latest drivers available for your modem and not just the microsoft ones.

    It's not likely, but if it only happens after 15 hours of continuous use it could have something to do with your ISP. Try this site http://www.56k.com/ It has plenty of articles and helpful guides to hopefully help you solve your problem.

    I also believe uncleel is directing you to the article to help in your problems, and for general information on how to set up internet connections in XP. We here at 3DS try and direct users to helpful articles instead of simply guessing at a problem.

    Hope this helps, and please post back if you have any further questions!!! :)

    One last thing, check out one of my posts dealing with your mobo's chipset (Via Apollo 133) and an interesting little program you might want to try out. It can be found here:

    Thought it might be something you want to tinker with, it helped me alot anyways!!! ;)
