To run these networking commands in a command prompt window

  5. Enter the IP address you checked in Command prompt.

Use Third-party system optimization tools

You could use Wise Driver Care to implement this function

  1. Roll back the network adapter driver with issue. Tap “Restore” to roll back your network adapter drivers. Note: You have to back up your driver first. So it is WISE to install Wise Driver Care and back up all your drivers so that you have no need to worry about the “Special Circumstances”.

  2. If you have not back up your drivers in advance for you to roll back, you could use PC Checkup and tap “Fix” button to reinstall the old version or update the drive automatically.

  3. Use Wise Driver Care to fix your network issues by tapping “Network failure” directly, and your network issues will be fixed automatically.
