Please can anyone help, I have Broadband but have started recieving the following Local Area Connection Cable unplugged, then Braodband kicks in, the a message saying Acquiring IP Address and it drops me from my AOL Silver Broadband, it does this every couple of minutes, so I am unable to connect or if I do connect its only for a short time. I downloaded IE7 and the above happened when I used the computer again. Until then it was working fine. I restored back to before the IE installation, but the loop still continues.

can anyone help me please?

Does it matter that I dont have a router, its only one PC I have? I dont have Dial-up either. sorry if this seems dim, but I dont really understand too much of the LAN and Broadband difference.

You could try System Restore to a time before the problem started.
