If you are a Nexus One user who has upgraded your phone to Android 2.2 in the past few weeks, you may have seen your 3G connection getting disabled while you launch your browser. A thread on the Google support forums whose first post dates back to June of this year has several users noticing a similar issue. If you are facing this issue, some users have suggested a few fixes. Do let us know if one of these issues solve the problem
- Dial *#*#4636#*#*
- Pick ‘Phone Info’
- Scroll down to ‘Preferred Network Type’
- Is it set to GSM only? If so, there’s your problem. Change it to GSM Auto (PRL) or WCDMA Preferred. Both will Give 3G, but for some GSM Auto (PRL) will improve battery life.
Settings->Wireless&Networks->Mobile Networks->Access Point Names–>(touch on your provider)–>touch Proxy and erase so that it is blank, and touch Port and make sure it is blank. I then turned off the phone, removed the battery for 10 secs and then rebooted. Done.
Did this fix the problem? Tell us in the comments.

I used the second fix you suggested, and I think it has helped the phone to keep the 3G connection working.
