Do you do anything else involving transfers of large amounts of data
TO the Internet?  Like uploading a file to an FTP server?

Also, what brand and model of modem do you have?  What kind of
equipment does your ISP use?

FWIW, I seem to be having a problem like this with my USR Sportster
Voice 56K.  It only happens irregularly though.
