  • Hi,


    I would like to provide you the following methods to fix this issue.


    Method 1: Reset router.


    Method 2: Run the following command with elevated privilege to reset Internet Protocol:




    Method 3: According to the router’s IP address, you may also assign the static IP address to your computers.


    Assign a Static IP Address


    Before we go further, I would like to let you know some general router IP address, In most cases, the router address is “”, “” or “”. If we know the IP address of the router, let’s perform the following steps.


    1. Click "Start", input "NCPA.CPL" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.

    2. Right click on the connection that you use for the local connection, and then click "Properties".

    3. Click “Continue” button to verify the administrator permission.

    4. Click to select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", and then click "Properties".

    5. Select “use the following IP address”.


    Manually set “IP address” (for example: if your router IP address is, we can type the IP address as, if the router IP address is, we should type in

    Manually set “Subnet mask” as (Note: we can use this address as the default subnet mask)

    Manually set “Default gateway” (Note: Default gateway is the IP address of your router)

    Manually set “preferred DNS server” (Note: Preferred DNS server also is the address of your router)


    6. Click “OK”.


    Good luck!
