--> How can I get rid of "Local Area 3 Connection" which I do not like at all??
This type of Online Connection has been the worse connection ever!
Because, whenever I go on some sites like for example, my Windows Media Player, it says that I have (no connection) but in reality, I AM Online. In other words, some of my (Windows) stuffs that I get onto are 'not' reading that I am Online using "Local Area 3 Connection." I am learning to really hate this type-name of Connection
But I am really scared if I get rid of "Local Area 3 Connection & find a NEW Connection, I will have big time probs getting back Online using another new Connection. My PC Intel computer seems to be very picky trying to get itself onto another Online Connection hook up.
A few advices, please?

Do you refer to any network as your home network by LAN? Can you post the computer model and OS next time? Have you run the speedtest and check on your connection speed lately?
