    Assuming you're using a modem:

    Go to <apple menu>->System Preferences...->Network.

    On Network panel, select Show: Internal Modem.

    Select PPP tab.

    Select PPP Options...

    See if "Prompt every xx minutes to maintain connection" is checked.

    Uncheck it.

    Did this work?
