I had this problem in the past.

I'm on Windows 7.

I click on Broadband Connection, click Connect, it pops of the screen saying Connecting...., computer freezes, restart, try again, freezes...

Updated Ethernet driver. Same problem. 

I can connect via Wi-Fi no problem.

What should I try?


Dell Inspiron, Win7.

Does this mean that you have this problem when trying to connect via ethernet?


But you don't need to click on the broadband connection when connecting by ethernet, you just connect the cable to the computer at one end and the router at the other. At least that has always been my experience.


With wi-fi you need to select the router and if necessary put in the access password, but not when connecting by ethernet.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
