Do you have the prior versions of .NET Framework installed already....1.1/2.0/3.0?

.NET Framework versions are cumulative and should be installed in order.

If you do not have the earlier versions then your attempted installation of 3.5 may have detected this and will therefore be looking for an internet connection to download the missing earlier versions.

Why not just connect to internet?
