How to Reset IP Address on a Windows PC

by Victoria Parker Digital Marketer

You can release and renew the IP address on a Windows PC to reset the IP address and doing so also helps in fixing common problems linked with IP address. The process of resetting the IP address is compatible with all versions of Windows.

How to Use the Command Prompt?


•    Go to the Start menu. Press on the Windows symbol given in the end left-hand side of the display.

•    Enter Command Prompt in the search bar. Now, the system starts finding the Command Prompt application.

•    Press on the Command Prompt option. You will get this option on the upper side of the Start menu. After tapping on this option, it will open the command prompt window.

•    Enter ipconfig. The command starts searching and showing the system IP address.

•    Tap on the Enter button. Once you have clicked on this button, it will start showing the Command prompt window on the desktop.

•    Go through the recent IP address of the system.

•    Type the release command. Enter ipconfig/ release and after that, click on the Enter button. This procedure will delete the IP address of the system and turn off the internet connection from the system.

•    Wait until the procedure gets complete after a few seconds.

•    Type the renew command. Enter ipconfig/ renew on the command prompt window. Once you have typed it, the resetting process of IP address gets completed on the Windows PC and also the internet connectivity.

•    In case you will get the same IP address on the screen which you have entered before, then this means the IP address you have already entered is consider the best IP address, so there is no need to reset it.

How to Reboot the Home Network?


•    You need to start the system again. Click on the Start menu, press on the Power button and after that, press on the Shutdown option located in the start menu.

•    Disconnect the power cords from the Wi-Fi modem for a few seconds.

•    Disconnect the Wi-Fi router.

•    You have to disconnect everything for a few minutes.

•    Connect the power cords in the Wi-Fi modem and router.

•    Restart your system. Click on the Power button on the system and let the system get restarted.

•    Now, you can pair to the home network.
