    Can't help with the Pearl Power Problem, but wanted to bump this question up on the list.

    It could be the timeout setting under your modem connection. Open up your modem connection and go to "Properties" > "Options" > and change the "Idle Time Before Hanging Up". I forget what the default is but I remember extending the time to 30 minutes. I had the same problem. You can extend the connection to as long as 24hrs. Even though your downloading it may not recognize it and shut off with a shorter time set. Good luck.

    No that didn't work Gary told me to call tech support. I would really like to see if anyone on here knows what's goin on first. I'll give this thread a couple of days to marinate then I will call tech support and post what they say.
