Your ISP may have setup an idle timer.
Try a "keep alive" type of program or just setup an automated ping
to an outside address every 5 minutes.
See if that stops the drops.

Hi, first of all, sorry about my bad english :(
The last month my ISP has started to have some problems, the modem
looses the signal almost three or four times a day, and it takes
between 15 and 30 minutes to go online again. When this happens,
once the modem it's online again, i have to manually release and
renew ip from m0n0wall web interface, or wait to m0n0wall sends a
dhcprequest, that means a couple of hours. It isn't a big problem
whem I am here, but when I'm not, my servers remains offline a
couple of ours...
The cuestion is, is there any way to modify the time between
dhcprequest to my ISP?
I can see this on the logs page:
Feb 13 16:26:14 dhclient: bound to 126.96.36.199 -- renewal in 14900
So, if the modem drops the connection at 17:00, it will remain
offline until 20:30?
Thank you, and again, sorry about my english.
