I have no idea what's going on. I have a laptop that can no longer connect wirelessly to the internet, so I always use an Ethernet connection for that laptop. However, earlier today, zi noticed that one of my downloads stopped completely. And from there, I couldn't do anything. I've tried Cmd commands, changing ip address options of the Protocols, and booting into safe mode with networking, and none of it worked. Please Help!

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.


First off you can try running these commands in a CMD prompt window.  Or save them to a text file and save with a .BAT file extension.


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


What operating system are you using?


Is your IP address showing as a 169.254.x.x?


Do any other devices on the network have an issue?

I've attempted countless fixes, and nothing worked, including the ones you mention. I refreshed my computer, and now it's working again. Thanks though!
