Repair a Broken TCP/IP Connection

Get back onto the Internet fast if you have TCP/IP woes.

TCP/IP problems can be exceedingly difficult to troubleshoot, and at times your TCP/IP connection appears to break for no apparent reason. Everything looks like it should be working, but you’re not able to connect using the protocols. If you have a broken connection, try the following:

  • Try automated repair

Right-click the broken connection in the Network Connections folder and choose Repair.

  • Run the Network Setup Wizard

It walks you step by step through TCP/IP and network configuration and will correct any errors you might have introduced inadvertently.

  • Reset your router

If you have a home network, the problem might lie with the router or in the connection between the router and your broadband provider. Follow the directions for resetting the router.
