Hey guys, i found this info form a website on how to completely reset your network.. take a look at this and can someone update it to comply with windows 8.1 64bit?

-what is missing for windows 8.1 64bit to totally reset your network.. this probably should be a sticky at some point too as everybody should know this info..

*these are commands you would type into a administrator command prompt..



UPDATE: On Windows 7, you'll need to do this to reset your network adapters:

  • ipconfig /flushdns
  • nbtstat -R
  • nbtstat -RR
  • netsh int reset all
  • netsh int ipv4 reset
  • netsh int ipv6 reset
  • netsh winsock reset
Now, reboot and pray. Possibly not in that orde

Well, when you hit Diagnose this connection, that is what it basically does, but an interesting idea.

You might also add: "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew"

  • ipconfig /flushdns
When DNSCache service is disabled, this problem is gone, it is also recommended for security reasons.


  • nbtstat -R
  • nbtstat -RR
Unless you have DSL connection or using file sharing, NetBIOS can be disabled, security reasons as well.

All of that is not unique to W8, it has been around for long time. W10 can do that too.

1. yes totally forgot about renew/release..

2. what are you saying about nbtstat -R etc.?? are you saying you don't need to run those? or just if you only use netbios..etc.

3. also after attempting to run netsh int reset all .. that command doesn't exist

Ok so besides Ipconfig renew/release and not needing nbtstat -r....

- Is there nothing else needed to "completely reset windows 8.1 networking" ?

-As my original post asks?

And thank you for the responses..
