Re: Local Area Connection Must Be Reset


Open an elevated command prompt and run the following:

ipconfig /release
netsh winsock reset
ipconfig /renew

Then close the prompt (exit) and restart the system.

To open an elevated prompt, click start and type CMD. Right click the entry that appears in the start menu and choose 'run as administrator'. Click 'continue' at the UAC prompt.

Vista Ultimate. ADSL modem. Connection by ethernet. A new problem has come up. Every time I boot in now the Local Area Connection is blocked with a yellow exclamation triangle on the line between PC and Network, ie modem, in Network and Sharing Center) and I get the multiple choice repair message box after clicking that triangle. The problem is fixed after clicking Reset Local Area Connection and the Internet connection is then established. This is very clunky. Is there a way I can get that reset to be permanent?
