How to Reset Network Settings to Fix Internet Connection

If you can\’t get online then resetting your network settings on your Windows PC or laptop could fix the problem, but before you start messing around here it\’s worth trying to establish where the fault lies.

Can other devices in the house get online? Can you load websites via a different web browser? If the answer to both is no, chances are your broadband connection is down, or the router needs resetting. Try powering off your router and restarting it a minute later.

Alternatively, it could be a software or hardware problem with your computer\’s network adaptor. Often, restarting your computer will fix this, but you can also make sure Windows is fully up to date by searching for \’Windows Update\’ at the bottom of the screen.
