"Reinstall and reset TCP/IP (Internet protocol)

Click on the Start button.
Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
Press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keyboard shortcut to run a command prompt as administrator. Allow elevation request.
Type netsh int ip reset in the command prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
Restart the computer.

Note: if you're using manually assigned TCP/IP settings, take notes as this will reset to the default 'automatically obtained'."

I have used this a thousand times. How to reset TCP/IP by using the NetShell utility provides an EXE file to automatically do that reset for you.
