Intermittent Sporadic Internet Connectivity Issues in Windows

Intermittent Sporadic Internet Connectivity Issues in Windows
If your PC or Laptop is having intermittent connectivity to the Internet, you may need to repair and rebuild your TCP/IPC Winsock settings. TCP Winsock defines how software on a Windows Operating System should be able to access the TCP/IP stack, thus how software can connect to the Internet.
If you are experiencing the issue, your LAN connection will appear connected all the time – but your Internet may not always load and you will receive “page cannot be displayed” in your favorite web browser such as Internet Explorer. Winsock corruption can occur from a virus or malware usually installed from other 3rd party software.
To fix and repair TCP Winsock and the Windows TCP/IP stack:
  • Open Windows Command Prompt and run as administrator (right-click, “run as administrator)
  • Type netsh winsock reset
  • Nets Winsock Reset Command Line
  • You should see this message: Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog.
  • Then, type netsh int ip reset
  • Nets IP Windows Reset Command Line
  • You will see these messages:
    • Resetting Global, OK!
    • Resetting Interface, OK!
    • Resetting Unicast Address, OK!
    • Resetting Neighbor, OK!
    • Resetting Path, OK!
    • Resetting , failed.
    • Access is denied.
    • Resetting , OK!
    • Restart the computer to complete this action.
  • Now, reboot your computer to complete the reset.
After the reboot, verify your WinSock repair. Go to Start -> Run -> Msinfo32 -> OK
WinSock MSINFO32 Verify 
Expand Components -> Network -> Protocol
