TCP/IP networking stack is a set of protocols built into your Microsoft Windows computer. The stack is responsible for Internet and/or wireless connectivity on your computer. If somehow this stack goes banana, you will face Internet connectivity, browsing issues. In this post, I am going to discuss how you can reset the TCP/IP networking stack in your Windows 7 computer. Check the steps below:
1. Click Start> All Programs> Accessories> right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. You can also open Command Prompt by typing ‘cmd’ in the Start Search bar. Right-click CMD.exe and click Run as administrator. If prompted, enter the administrator password and proceed.
2. On the Command Prompt dialog box, type ‘netsh int ip reset c:\netsh.log.txt’ (without quotes) and hit Enter. Wait until the command finishes resetting the TCP/IP networking log. When done, type ‘netsh winsock reset’ and hit Enter again. It will reset the Winsock settings. When done, exit the Command Prompt window.

3. Restart your computer and you are done. After you run these commands, Microsoft Windows 7 will automatically prompt you to reboot your PC. However, if it doesn’t, do it yourself. Connect to the Internet and your wireless network and get going.
