Using Windows 10; With a Wifi Router and an ethernet cable that connects to a desktop system.

 

For the past 2 weeks after the computer has gone to sleep for a period of time; I am having to reboot the computer to connect to the internet. (This has never happened before in the past). When I lose the connection I have tried using the Windows troubleshooter to try and solve this but every time it says it is unable to reset the ethernet network card ip address. I have done the following steps to try and solve this:

 

1. Replaced and installed a new wifi router since the one that I had was about 8 years old. It has greatly helped the connection speed and wifi range.

2. I have made sure that the ethernet network card has the latest driver software.

3. I have tried to make sure that the network card has power to it when the computer goes to sleep by unchecking the box under the power management settings for the network card.

 

Also sometimes this same problem may occur to the laptop computer which is connected to the internet by wifi; instead of by ethernet cable. I am trying to mainly solve the problem to the desktop system which is used most often. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Ron

Copy these lines into a text document in Notepad and save with a .bat file extension.

 

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew
netsh winsock reset

 

When you have the problem double click on the file to run it.

You can also type the commands one at a time into a command prompt window, but the batch file makes things easier.

Thanks for the info. I just now lost my internet connection and ran the batch file and it solved the problem. Hopefully this will not occur in the future.

Well, even if the internet drops, running the batchfile sure beats restarting!   :)

I will have to say a big AMEN to that statement!

Glad to hear that it worked for you.  I have this because of an issue that happened in early December 2016 where a lot of Windows 10 machine were having address issues.  Installing KB3206632 was the fix.
