Yes, there is a way to fix it. Go to Tools >> Internet Options >>> Connections tab >>>> Mark Never dial a connection just to be safe >>>>> Then go down to LAN Settings and set it up!

never dial a connection area is greyed out as there has never been a modem installed ..and has a check mark next to it ......so thats ok ...

as far as configuring lan settings? what is there to configure in there ?
