Probably the only way to fix it is for him to move, seriously. There are several factors that will cause that, the main one being the quaility of the phone lines in his area.

Let me know what kind modem he has and I can give you a modem string that might help but if he is connecting at or below 28,800 then it probably won't help though.

I think there is a program called StayConnect (?) that can be downloaded that is supposed to help with keeping connected to the internet. The only people that I ever heard using it were AO Hell customers, so it might be designed for that, though.

There isn't much that can be done that I know of. If he's got a V.92 modem, is connecting to a V.92 system, and has call-waiting, then he shouldn't be getting disconnected by the phone ringing.
