    It's a client for the eDonkey and Overnet P2P networks.

    How can a cable connection even disconnect?

    i've heard e-mule has such issues... your probably choking your connection to DEATH(literally)... find a way to cap your bandwidth usage.... and possibly limit your peers...

    I recommend IRC as an alternative to p2p. It won't suck your bandwidth dry.
