Reset TCP/IP Protocol Suite
If you cannot connect to the Internet, the TCP/IP protocol may have been corrupted, and you may have to reset TCP/IP. This has
the same effect as removing and reinstalling TCP/IP. TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic
communication language or protocol of the Internet. It can also be used as a communications protocol in a private network
(either an intranet or an extranet). TCP/IP is the suite of communications protocols used to connect hosts on the Internet.
TCP/IP uses several protocols, the two main ones being TCP and IP. TCP/IP is one of the core components required by your
Windows computer to connect successfully to the Internet.
When you try to release and renew the IP address by using the Ipconfig program (Ipconfig.exe), you may receive one of the

Additionally, you may have no IP address or no Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) address, and you may be receiving IP
