Ok since I have not used dial-up in quite some time but this should solve the problem just follow the dots as they used to say

1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Internet.
2. Click the Connections tab, click your Dial-Up Networking connection, and then click Settings.
3. Under Dial-up Settings, click Properties.
4. Click the Dialing tab.
5. Click the Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed check box to select it.
6. Click OK, click OK, and then click OK again.

If there is a tick mark in the line 5 I would suggest getting an updated modem driver for your modem even though this one seems to be working properly

If your ISP is disconnecting you automatically for inactivity (such as the time you spend replying to an email), then I suggest you invest in this software. (free!) There are a number of programs that do this. It simulates online activity by linking to sites. Uses almost no resources. It's been many years since I've had dialup, but I used similar software back then.

Noisey lines can cause you to be disconnected. Contact your TeleCo and have them run a line check.
If you are using a National ISP like Juno, AOL, Mindspring,.. try using a different connection number.

That, too. One of the reasons that I've found to be common is that internal house telephone lines can often be reversed polarity. It will work sometimes, other times not. I use a tester like this to find out.

I cannot speak for most but BellSouth will replace the service box with a new box that has a dedicated DSL outlet. This was done for my father-in-law and there ran Cat5 from the box to the computer.
I have found on ADSL and Cable that a bad ground can degrade the signal. If you telco has it grounded on the same ground rod as the teleco or grounded to a water pipe this could result in current feeding back thru the POTS line.
