In summary for those who are losing entire internet connection while running WinMX. This could be due to any of the following factors:

1. If modem lights stay on and flashing even though entire internet connection is lost this usually signifies that the modem has crashed. Power cycling the modem can fix this.

      a. Too many simultanious connections
      b. Faulty modems
