How to reload TCP/IP in Windows
In Windows XP, TCP/IP is bound to each connection, so there are
no files to reload. In order to resolve this issue, we must simply
create a new connection.
To create a new connection in Windows XP, do the following:
- From the Windows XP desktop, Click on Start
- Choose Control Panel
- If the Control Panel window asks you to pick a task or a category,
click on the link to the left labeled "Switch to Classic
View". If it does not ask you to pick a task or a category,
you may skip this step.
- Double click on Network Connections
- Double click on the New Connection Wizard. In some versions
of XP, it may be a link to the left that says "Create
a New Connection"
- In the New Connection Wizard, click on Next
- Choose "Connect to the Internet" and then
- Choose "Setup My Internet Connection Manually"
and then click Next.
- Choose "Connect Using a Dial Up Modem" and
then click Next.
- Type the name Lanset in the ISP Name box. Click on Next.
- Type your local Phone number in the Phone Number box, then
click on Next. If you are not sure what your local phone number
is, click HERE.
- Type your Username in the username field.
- Type your Password in the Password and Confirm Password
fields. Leave the three boxes on this page alone. Click on Next.
- In this final screen, there is a box that says, "Add
a shortcut to this connection to my desktop." Make sure
that box is checked, then click on finish.
- If everything is done right, then the username and password
field will be displayed.
You have successfully created a new connection under Windows XP.
You may now delete your old connection.
