Reset TCP/IP in Windows 10 and 11

The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol is essential for our PC to communicate with other devices over the Internet. Although when things go wrong, we must solve them in order to continue enjoying our connection. In these cases it is important to know how to reset TCP/IP in Windows 10 and 11 ..

In the following guide we will explain it step by step, the images we use are from Windows 11 and may vary a bit from the previous version of the Microsoft operating system. However, it is quite similar.

What is TCP/IP?

TCP/IP refers to the Internet protocol suite. Both control how the digital information is divided into different packets, how these packets travel between our computer and its destination; and how our PC can ensure that all packages were received properly. It's really important for the internet as we know it to work..

The Internet Protocol Suite configuration is saved on our device, which means that it is possible to corrupt it with malware, some program that we have installed or in several similar ways. On many occasions, a TCP/IP problem will present itself to us as a nondescript connection error. The simplest way to fix this is to reset the TCP/IP stack settings to their default values.
