How do I completely reset my network settings in Windows 7

Hi experts,

Due to a succession of troublesome software packages and network setting changes, my networking is problematic and unreliable.  So I would like to re-do my network settings from scratch, as if it is a new machine.  Then I can set it all up the way I want.

I had a feeling there was a windows command or utility that will do this?

Cheers
Paul

For most cases a TCP/IP reset will do this unless there is deeper damage not disclosed here.

Basic TCP/IP Reset:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer

That seems better, as it tethered to my iPhone immediately unlike before.  I also deleted a couple of redundant network protocols.  I will see how it goes once I reinstall a couple of packages.
Meanwhile I will close this one, thanks
