When you first got broadband, did you need special software? If so, you will need to reinstall it.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Have you set up a dialup connection? (It appear so) If yes, then disable it, since you are not going to use it.

Open Internet Options from Control Panel.
Select Connections tab
Select option "Never dial a connection" and click OK
