batch file to automatically repair LAN connection

If anyone is able to help or give advice on where to start I would be most greatfull. At present, for some strange reason, alot of the time on our network outlook goes offline, and occasionally the internet connection will go down as well. At present teh only solution around it is to go to teh computers with that get the problem and view connection settings, and repair. This has been going on for a fair few weeks now, and it is getting tedious repairing it all the time as some of the non-literate computer guys just refuse to learn the steps to repair teh connection.

Anyways.... Is it possible to make a batch that will automatically repair the LAN connection whenever the problem happens, so the computer user can just double clich teh batch icon that I will place on thier desktop.

Any help or advice will br greatly appreciated

Hi

First try to check whether the problem computer is getting the correct DNS server.
try ipconfig /flushdns

the ipconfig /registerdns

once both the commands are executed, see if the problem still persists. or not..

Let me know about this...

I will give u the batch file that the release and renew the LAN connection..

Simply right-clicking on the network icon in the taskbar notification area and selecting Repair will perform the ip renewal, among other tasks...
The process of which is described here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/maintain/repair.mspx

This article discusses the command-line equivalents performed by the Repair option...
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289256

Nonetheless, here is a batch file which implements all the tasks... I've added two extra switches to perform the following...

/r - tcp/ip reset (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357)
