Solved Issues in reset network settings using Win 10

November 14, 2020 at 07:31:19
Specs: Win10, Intel core i7 2600/ 4GB
After rebooting my PC I cannot contact the Internet. This happens also in my wife’s PC. and our tablets and phones.

There is something wrong in the network setup on my PC. This PC runs WIN 10 64bit with the latest updates installed. To connect with the internet without a VPN (Virtual Private Network) it uses Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller. For privacy reasons, I installed NordVPN which installs its own network connection called NordLynx.

When I run WN&SC(Windows Network and Sharing Center) and then the Troubleshooter, I find 4 different connections:
1. Ethernetwork – (Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller)
2. Ethernet 2 – with a RED X – (TAP-NordVPN Windows Adapter V9)
3. Local Area Connection - with a RED X (TAP-NordVPN Windows Adapter V9)
4. NordLynx – (NordLynx Tunnel)

NordLynx advises “disable and then re-enable it” in the app, but after a reboot, it comes back with the same problem. Running again WN&SC, I find that there are still the same 4 different connections. So I thought let me try to uninstall the RED ones, but right-clicking only gives the possibility to disable it, not delete it.

I found on the internet how to reset it in Windows 10, but my question is when I do that are the changes then done in my router or only on the device I do the reset?

Thanks for answering

If you're having issues with all your PCs, tables, & phones, the problem is either with your modem/router settings, the modem/router hardware, or the internet service provider. Or it could be related to the VPN. Is that when the problem started?

Do you need a VPN?

Presumably you're having trouble using ethernet connection(s) - let alone wifi? Possibly start with the router; simply power it down; wait a minute or so then power up again.

Start thereafter by ensuring that, without the vpn side engaged at all, it all works as a simple ethernet connected system; then via wifi (if appropriate).

Once you have established that then start on the vpn side of the situation.
