You're using an ADSL broadband-via-phone-line connection, correct? Make & model of modem? `DSL Takas` would suggest ADSL in which case the Local Area Connection is irrelevant. It's for your RJ45 network connector.

You can untick TCP/IP v6.

Check your cables and your ADSL filters.

"You're using an ADSL broadband-via-phone-line connection, correct?" YES

"Make & model of modem?" ZXDSL 831All (831 Series)

Ok i unticked TCP/IP v6. i think my cables are good, but what about IP address 169.xxx.xxx.xxx , i saw ppl saying that its not good to have ip adress like that i tried everything but it doesnt help ;/

Again, that address is reported by your Local Area Connection/RJ45 - not relevant if you are connecting via a USB modem to ADSL broadband. 169 etc is an IP address allocated automatically by Windows when it can't find a DHCP server. As your RJ45/LAN connection is not connected to anything at all, that is the address-range that will appear when you check the settings.

ADSL connections and dropouts are confined to phone-line quality, distance from your local exchange, the speed of your PC to some extent as the machine has to convert a USB signal into network information, driver version/revision, modem/router make and model and firmware. You need to access the line-stats for your modem. This site has loads of excellent information about ADSL - click here
