How to reset network settings in Windows 10

The problem that Windows has always faced and will continue to do so in the future, unlike macOS, is that the guys at Microsoft must create an operating system that is compatible with all models of graphics cards, network, wireless, bluetooth connections , sound cards, fingerprint scanner, integrated cameras ... and it is likely that from time to time one of the drivers is updated or begins to fail and we cannot find out what is the problem that is affecting it. In these cases, if after reinstalling the control over and over again, both the one provided by Windows and the manufacturer itself, the best we can do is reset the settings.

The internet connection is usually, together with the graph, one of the ones that usually shows the most problems. In the case of the internet connection, the simplest method to try to solve the problem without going in and looking for what may be the cause that does not allow us to connect to our network or to the internet directly, is to reestablish the connection.

When resetting network settings, All the passwords, settings and others that we have stored will be completely deleted and Windows will start to install it again as if it were new. This way, any alternative settings that we would have used will be completely removed, as Windows will use automatic connection protocols to try to fix the problem.

Restart the network adapter of our Windows 10 PC

  • First of all we will go to the configuration options, which we find in the start menu through the cogwheel.
  • From the different options that appear, we select Network and Internet.
  • Next we go to Network Reset.
  • In the screen that will appear next, click on Reset now.

At this point we will see how the network icon, blinks and changes its drawing. When the Wi-Fi symbol with an asterisk reappears, click on it and select the Wi-Fi network to which we want to connect, enter the password and that's it.
