Having connection issues and no viruses or malware?  Hardware ok?

Try typing the following at a command prompt as an administrator
(you can copy and paste the bold text below) to fully reset the TCP/IP Stack-


netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh interface ipv4 reset
netsh interface ipv6 reset
arp d
netsh winsock reset 
netsh int tcp reset
netsh int ip reset
netsh int ip delete neighbors
netsh int ip delete destinationcache
netsh int ip delete arpcache
ipconfig /flushDNS
