I'm assuming this issue is with IE8/9

To resolve follow the below

The RAS PPPoE driver file  “raspppoe.sys”  found under  c: windows\system32\drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem and it is system file.
 
I would suggest you to rename raspppoe.sys to raspppoe.old.
 
If that above step fails then I would suggest you to re - register the file and then check
To re- register the file follow the below steps as –
 
1. Click Start.
2. In search window type 'cmd' and ENTER. Right click and select 'Run as administrator'
3. In the command window that opens type  regsvr32 raspppoe.sys and press Enter

If my above instructions don't work.

Are you also able to access the internet from another machine? Have you tried resetting IE to Factory Settings? Has the router been rebooted?

Can you do a system restore back to when the machine was working well?

Are you sure you've ran Command Prompt as administrator?

Can you use Windows Updates to get a later version of IE?

What version of IE is in play here? Have you tried another browser?

Can any other machine on your network access the internet? Have you rebooted the router?

Try and get LAN network adapter driver and then uninstall the current driver through device manager. Once you've uninstalled the driver then install the LAN network adapter driver.

I completely uninstalled the device and re-installed everything.  That did the trick!
