Alright, I've got a peculiar kind of problem, but will try and explain it as best as I can.

I currently have two ISP lines available at my service- depending on the service provider that I need, I plug their cable on to the back of computer ( the LAN side),
and change the connections in my Local Area Connections properties.

Now one of the ISP's internet seems to stop working after some time ( varies to around 5-15 minutes), and if I switch to the other line after repairing the LAN ( using the repair option), the LAN just freezes and does not update further. When I manually restart, the internet again starts working ( with ISP 1), before again conking.

If I attempt to restart the computer using the restart option under my Windows menu, it tells me that the LAN program should be ended. When I end it, the PC just stays there- with wallpaper and no restart. I have to manually restart it from the CPU following which my internet ( with the second connection) then works well. Should I want to switch to my first internet ( because the second one is a limited data plan), the LAN connection option again Freezes and I have no other option but to restart my computer.

I'm using NVIDIA, and I feel there is some kind of problem with my LAN card.

What is the LAN process to end in CTRL+ALT+DEL?

Any suggestions?

Sorry for the bump, but I'd really like somebody's opinion on this.

Have you checked for any updates to your onboard NIC driver?
