When the internet goes down and you are unable to connect try these instructions. I have yet to figure out why this has started happening, but it seems that my registry keeps getting modified.


Phase 1:

Reset Network Adapter and DNS using Command Prompt

  1. Run as Administrator Command Prompt
  2. Type the following commands, pressing enter after finishing each one:
  • netsh winsock reset
  • ipconfig /release
  • netsh int ip reset – my machine fails on this step and says “Resetting, failed. Access is denied.” If this happens, skip to phase 2.
  • ipconfig /flushdns
  • ipconfig /renew
  • Exit Command Prompt
  • Restart your PC.

Phase 2:

  1. Open Regedit.
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nsi and expand that folder.
  3. Expand the subfolder named {eb004a00-9b1a-11d4-9123-0050047759bc} and right-click the subfolder named 26. Select Permissions… and ensure that for Everyone the Full Control box is checked.

Once the 26 subfolder is opened back to Everyone, my interet access begins to work.
