My GOD??? You must HAVE read those FAQs??? The way you wrote that message,
I could almost *see* what your problem is! You called your ISP? Some ISPs
don't like their customers sucking up bandwidth with CU-SeeMe, and will drop
the user's connection when using CU's TCP/IP ports (this is rare, though)!!!
I'm wondering if you dropped you Min & Max Xfer/Recv (Max Windows) values
in your "CUSEEME.INI" file? Let me give you what I have in my INI file:

MaxCap=30 ; Default is 80
MinCap=10 ; Default is 10
MaxRecvCap=40 ; Default is 300
MinRecvCap=10 ; Default is 14

Try these values and let us know what happens! I trust your ISP dropped
your connections because your old values were using too much bandwidth! These
new values might help you out!
