Local area connection 2

My internet connection has been much slower over the last few days, the pages on some sites take an age to load. At the bottom of my screen near the clock I can see a small yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. When I point the cursor at it I get the message 'Local area connection 2, speed 576.0 kb Status: limited or no connectivity'. Also in system/device manager I have two yellow question marks, one next to 'other devices' and one next to 'PCI simple communication controller'. Is there a fault with my ISP (AOL) or my PC? I'm on Windows XP. Thanks.

I would say that either you have installed another lan card turned one on in the bios or made a copy of the first lan connection,other devices could be a firewire card if you have one,simple pci controller i would say is a modem,not sure.

Clicked update driver, inserted drivers/utilities CD & rebooted. Yellow (?) in device manager gone, yellow (!) gone, now replaced with a red cross through 2 small monitors as it was originally. I also have the message ' Local area connection A network cable is unplugged. '
