    Yes, but are you hard wired or wireless?

    It's not likely that you use pppoe that is the issue, but more likely a hardware issue
    NIC? ADSL/CABLE Router? etc...?

    Check the log file /var/log/messages for entries around the time the
    connection drops and you reconnect.

    i checked the log....
    there are no errors between the time i start and stop the connection.i guess there is some problem with kde 4 cause i have changed to xfce and i have no problems now with the connection.

    Hmmm, strange.

    Glad you got it fixed. You might try kde3.5 if you desire the kde interface.
    kde4 is still a bit experimental yet, and some things just don't work well
    yet. Soon!
