No way to skip it. If your ISP has not updated their systems and/or
connection software, they will have to eventually as it's not going away.
Usually these types of problems require reinstalling network card drivers
and have nothing to do with the ISP unless they are providing you with
connection software. Before installing SP2, download a recent driver from
the card manufacturer and install it after the update.
