Hello Creami. Slow / weak internet connection is the top cause for your problem. Avoid wireless connection if it is possible, it is no recommended for Second Life and prefer direct cable connection. In addition try to set your performance to lower under your preferences --> graphics tab and generally disable everything under your preferences you don't use like voice for example. See if that makes any difference.

Are you logged out every two minutes, or do you crash?  If you are being logged out, you will always get some kind of error message that can help you figure out why the servers are dropping you.  If you crash, though, you won't get an error message.  You'll just suddenly be out of SL with no warning, although your screen in SL may look wonky just before you crash.  Angel has given you a couple of good ideas about why you might crash -- basically, your Internet connection is weak and was interrupted. 

There's one other serious possibility -- serious especially if you really are crashing every time within two minutes or less of logging in.  You may be overheating.  Your computer can be damaged critically if it gets too hot, so its built-in defense is to shut down applications that are asking it to work too hard.  If you force it to keep working, you can burn out your graphics card or, worse, components on your mother board. 

If you are working on a desktop, open the case and use a can of compressed air to blow out all of the dust bunnies and cat hair now.  You should do this every month or so normally.  Also, be sure that you have adequate fans.  Fans are cheap insurance against overheating, and you can download free software from the Internet that will make the fans speed up if things get too hot.  If you are using a laptop, you may have to take the computer to the shop to have them open it up and clean it.  Then, get yourself a ventilating lap board that will lift the computer off of your work surface -- never your lap! -- to get plenty of airflow under it.  Again, it's a cheap investment compared with the cost of replacing the entire computer.

Finally, if you really are being logged out -- not crashing -- tell us what error message you are getting so we can offer better help.  You can add more information to your question by clicking n the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting EDIT.  Please do NOT start a new thread.
