Occasionally you may need to fix issues such as Chrome not working after the Windows 10 creators edition update.  There are some commands you can run followed by a reboot that will typically fix this.

Type the following command line to completely reset TCP/IP configuration and restore TCP/IP to its original state. The command takes effect after you restart your computer.

  • netsh int ip reset

**To reset TCP/IP and generate a log file to a specific path, use the following command:

  • netsh int IP reset c:\resettcpip.txt

If you use IPv4 or IPv6, use the command lines below to reset IP address:

  • netsh int ipv4 reset
  • netsh int ipv6 reset

To reinstall TCP/IP, type the command lines below:

  • SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
  • SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCP\Parameters

Additionally, you can also use Netsh commands to flush DNS and reset network settings to fix Internet connection problems. The command lines are as follows:

  • ipconfig /release (this command removes the current IP configuration)
  • ipconfig /renew (this command requests your DHCP client to reset an IP address)
  • ipconfig /flushdns (use this Netsh command to clear corrupted or incorrect DNS cache)
  • netsh winsock reset (this command line resets Winsock settings and recovers your computer from any socket errors. Winsock contains your computer Internet connectivity configurations)
