Hello... in Brazil   I solved the problem when I put a small 5 port switch between the modem and  the FreeBSD machine..
one cable FreeBSD  -> small switch ->  modem  instead of : Freebsd -> modem
since than no connection drop at all

I do not know why this happens.. must be something about hardware, timing... 

Hope this helps...
