Tip of the Week: How to Troubleshoot and Reset Your Network in Windows 10


Windows 10 made several small changes during its Anniversary Update, not the least of which being the inclusion of a Network Status page, allowing the user to check on the current network connection’s status.

This new Windows 10 feature provides an easy way to determine and troubleshoot network issues that may have alluded many PC users in the past.

Note: Before doing anything, a user should be sure to confirm that the issue is not due to a problem with their cable modem or Internet service provider.

To access this feature, go to Settings > Network & Internet > Status. This Network Status page allows a user to do more than just get an update on how well your network is connected–there are two tools included to facilitate the repair. The first of which, a Troubleshoot button, diverts the user to the Windows Network Diagnostic utility. Taking this action will enable a user to run a brief string of tests to resolve typical network issues.

If that doesn’t work, a user will find a Network Reset button at the bottom of the Settings page. This will result in a complete wipe of any and all network settings on the machine, allowing the user to start over from the beginning.
