Some­times you need to re­set spe­cific parts of Win­dows 10’s net­work­ing set­tings to get things work­ing again. The sim­plest way to do this is with a free tool called Com­plete In­ter­net Re­pair (www.ri­zone­ – tick the first four boxes and click Go!

This as­sumes you al­ready have the tool; in the likely event you don’t, right-click the Start but­ton or press [Win] + [X] on your key­board and choose Com­mand Prompt (Ad­min) or Pow­er­shell (Ad­min). When the com­mand prompt win­dow ap­pears, type the fol­low­ing com­mands one at a time, press­ing [En­ter] af­ter each:

$ netsh winsock re­set $ netsh int ip re­set $ ip­con­fig /re­lease $ ip­con­fig /re­new $ ip­con­fig /flushdns

If the prob­lem per­sists, re­turn to the main text in this fea­ture and carry on trou­bleshoot­ing.

Com­plete In­ter­net Re­pair 5 is worth adding to any tool­kit.
