I disabled my Local Area Connection and now I can't enable it. I get the error message, "It is not possible to disconnect at this time. The connection is currently busy with a connect or disconnect operation." This is the connection that I use for my ethernet cable. Also, this happened around 10:00 AM, and it is currently 1:42 PM.

Are you running XP? ... if so, have you attempted to have windows repair the connection? Go to Start + Control Panel + Network and Internet Connections + Network Connections. You should see the icon for your connection there even if it is set to disabled.

Right click on your connection icon and select "Repair or Enable" If no love with either option, right click on the connection icon and select "Status + "Properties" - on the general tab at the top you will see "connect using:" Is your ethernet or onboard LAN listed in this box? If so select "Configure"

If your not using XP or your connection is still disabled please let me know and supply the OS you are using.

Would it be possible to create a new Local Area Connection with my router? The real problem is, the icon says it is enabled, but the ethernet port lights aren't lit up. And when i try and right-click then disable i get the error.
