To disable and then re-enable the network interface:
- Click Control Panel, double-click Network and Sharing Center, and then click Manage network connections.
- Right-click the network interface you want to disable, and then click Disable.
- Right-click the network interface again, and then click Enable.
To verify TCP/IP connectivity:
- Click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
- Click Continue when prompted by User Account Control, and then provide the administrator password, if requested.
- Type ping followed by an IP address of another host on the network.
