the ircd is at a friends house not too far away, he's got the same isp I do. I've got an always on connection, as does he, I'm logged into the server with pidgin, and it's not dropping. (he runs a little private server for a few friends, much like you're doing).
interestingly enough, it's not dropping the connections at the same time with his server and yours.
if you think it'd help, I can snoop the network traffic and see if there's anything that looks out of place... where'd I put my wireshark. *ponder*
