Must repair local area connection every 10sec

Hewlett-packard / 510

Specs: Windows XP, 2040 MB RAM
To get my Internet connection working I have to press "repair local area connection", after that it will work for 10-20 seconds and then I have to press repair again.

I have reinstalled XP from scratch recently in hope that it would solve my problem but it did not!
I am connected to a broadband from Tele2, and I do not use any router (I just plug the cable directly from the wall to the computer)
When I connected to Internet with an other computer (windows 7 this time if that would matter) the connection ran without any problems in the world.

Anyone got a clue of what to do? I'm grateful for any suggestions!

Now, just to inform. There is no way that you can directly connect your computer straight to the wall (unless it was a certain type of wall jack, which is less likely to be found in a home). I have no idea how you got it to work on windows 7 but its likely impossible to connect a computer straight to the wall jack. If anyone knows please do tell me of this technology.

If a computer worked with this setup, there must be a modem upline somewhere. It could be any of several problems -mac address, static ip, etc. One good first step is to do an ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew in a cmd window. Or simply reboot the modem then puter in that order.

IAC, I strongly suggest you insert a router, for ease of configuration and firewall purposes.
