Resetting your network adapter in Windows XP

Network shell (Netsh) is a tool an administrator can use to configure and monitor network devices on Windows based computers at a command prompt. A common use of Netsh, is to reset the TCP/IP stack back to default settings.

But not only will Netsh reset the TCP/IP stack, but it can also completely reset your network adapter(s). It will also display the network diagnostics page in Windows XP too.

Using Netsh in Windows XP

To use Netsh, you will need to open a Command Prompt. There are two ways to do this:

  • Click the Start button, then Programs, then Accessories, then click on Command Prompt
  • or

  • Press Windows logo key + R. This will bring up the Run dialog box. Type CMD and click OK

Netsh commands in Windows XP
