To reset your network configuration settings to their default values in the Windows Control Panel, you will need to follow these steps:
1. Open the Windows Control Panel. You can access this by pressing the Windows key + R, typing “control” and pressing Enter.
2. Once the Control Panel window has opened, click “Network and Sharing Center.”
3. Click “Change adapter settings” to view all active connections.
4. Right-click the active connection for which you want to reset the configurations and select “Properties.”
5. Select the “Networking” tab in the top menu.
6. From the list of items under the “This connection uses the following items” section, select each item one by one and click the “Uninstall” button.
7. Repeat this until all network configuration items have been uninstalled.
8. After all the items have been removed, restart the computer and reconnect to the network.
9. The network configuration settings should now be reset to their default values.
This process should work for most versions of Windows, including Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP. If the above steps do not work, you may need to consult your network administrator or IT support provider.
