Suddenly, my direct connected (Cat 5 to the broadband modem) computer is asking me to dial a connection. It no longer seems to know that it is simply connected. When I look at the devices tab, it shows Enabled for my network card and I have tried to reinstall the drivers. I dual boot with Ubuntu and Ubuntu is able to access the internet (and network) fine. It seems Windows 7 just stopped using the card and is trying to use a dial up. This all happened after a sudden start up error. I tried to restore to a different restore point, however no matter which I try, they are all "unsuccessful".
