I have Windows XP upgrade and 2 times and both times the same thing happened. I have DSL through Ameritech SBC and have had it a while (over a year).

When I download the upgrade and try to get into my Microsoft Outlook Express if immediately kicks me off of DSL conncetion. If I only stay on the Internet I can go anywhere and it won't kick me off. I can even send e-mail through Yahoo (which is SBC connected for me)

What is going on?
