Fix Persistent Network Problems by Resetting TCP/IP in Windows 7
You may have experienced that from time to time your Wireless Connection just stops working or you get disconnected. Usually this is fixed by right-Clicking the WLan icon in the Tray and choose Troubleshoot.
What this does amongst other things is to reset your wireless connection using the ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew feature. And usually it will do the trick.
But if this is a reoccurring problem that means something else is wrong.
Your TCP/IP protocol might be corrupted and needs resetting. This is for some reason something you need to do yourself and (as far as I know) not being done by the Troubleshooter.
To manually reset your TCP/IP in Windows 7 you have to:
1. Open an elevated Command prompt (Right Click CMD.EXE and choose Run as administrator)
2. Type one of the following:
netsh interface ipv4 reset
netsh interface ipv6 reset
3. Restart your Computer.
So there you have it.
