Win 95 "Connection Timed Out"

Once in a while, my WP 2.0/Win 95 connection to a reflector will die.
Usually the message, "Connection Timed Out" will appear. It appears that the
Winsock is no longer functional at that point. The only remedy appears to be
to disconnect from my ISP and reconnect in order to restore a working socket.

Does Anyone know of another way to kill the dead socket and start a new one
without having to redial the ISP?
