Apparently, there's a command:

netsh int ip reset

which resets TCP/IP settings for Windows XP/Vista/7, but I'm not sure that it works correctly on Windows 8.

cmd screenshot

When I typed the command under command prompt (Admin) I got two errors as pointed out in the screenshot:

Resetting , failed.  
Access is denied.

At the end it said Resetting , OK!, so how do I confirm if it worked or not?

  • Just double checking, are you sure you were in an elevated command prompt?

  • @Keltari: Yes, you can also notice that on the title bar of command prompt in the screenshot where it says "Administrator: Command Prompt".

run ProcMon in background while runing the command and filter for Access Denied errors in the Result column.

    When I ran this it stated that it was HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nsi\{eb004a00-9b1a-11d4-9123-0050047759bc}\26 that netsh was getting access denied on. Added permissions to this reg key, and it worked.

    nice to hear that it worked. Sep 3 '13 at 3:59

I've run this command on a lot of customers' PCs, and despite the error message, the command has always done its job. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about the command to say why it produces an error message.
