I would try to uninstall both the orangehome network and the virgin broadband software.

Reboot the computer and then try to run the virgin broadband cd again.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thinkpad 760el how can I connect broadband preferably wired

You will need a LAN network card in your laptop, it may already have a LAN port connection on the laptop.
First you need to decide what type of broadband connection your require DSL (it uses your phone line) or a cable connection.
You need to signup to an Internet Service Provider in your area that can provide a DSL or cable connection. Select a broadband plan that suits your requirements, be aware that some ISP will charge additional fees for exceeding your monthly download limit.
The ISP may also include a DSL or cable modem with their broadband plan.
The ISP will supply a setup CD to install and setup your broadband connection.

If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.

If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.
