Windows 10: Use Network Reset

Favorite Article   


Network Reset can solve connection problems that might occur after upgrading versions or fix problems connecting to shared network drives. Reset removes all network adapters and adapter settings from your PC. After you restart your computer, any network adapters are reinstalled, and the settings reenabled.

This should be your last resort.
