NETSH - what does this do? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi,

     

    I was recently stopping in a hotel and had trouble using their wireless network.

    I phoned their helpline and was told to type the following into a DOS box.

     

    netsh int tcp set global disabled disabled disabled

    Unfortunately the person on the phone was unable to tell me what I was actually doing - they just had this 'fix' listed for Vista! Typical help desk!

     

    Whilst I don't like doing things to my laptop I don't understand I was desperate to get online so I did it (and it fixed the issue).

     

    Now I'm looking to understand more about what I've done and more importantly how I reverse it (or if I should reverse it).

     

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

     

    A bit of background...

    The machine in question is a Sony Vaio BX series running Vista Business.

    As for the user, I'm a software engineer by trade so I understand a bit about computers but I'm no network techie!

     

    Thanks in advance.

     

    CA.
