Internet Connect disconnects - Mac Networking

Using OSX (just upgraded to Panther) Whenever I click a link and there's a problem with that link's server so it doesn't respond, IC disconnects me with a "other side not responding". This never happened with pre-OS X systems. I can't find any option to prevent these automatic disconnects, which are quite annoying. Is there a fix?

    Default Internet Connect disconnects

    Using OSX (just upgraded to Panther) Whenever I click a link and
    there's a problem with that link's server so it doesn't respond, IC
    disconnects me with a "other side not responding". This never
    happened with pre-OS X systems.

    I can't find any option to prevent these automatic disconnects, which
    are quite annoying.

    Is there a fix?

    protection on us?

    what kind of connection are you using? What kind of modem? I had the
    same kind of problems with ISDN and a DrayTek modem. Each time OSX was
    updated, this problem occured until DrayTek updated their software. I'm
    happy to be on ADSL now...
