Can I reset 2000 network settings to their defaults?

By Ian Boothby ·
I have a client running Windows 2000 who had to call in a networking expert in order to access her w'less router. Auto settings did not work so he set up IPs DNSs MAC adresses manually and everything worked until last week when she was unable to acess the net (ZA/Win update??) and she called her ISP who, for 50 minutes, made changes to those settings but failed to connect. I was called in and solved the problem using a powerline connection, but would like to get the w'less working again but cannot.

I'm obviously no network engineer, so how do I get back to "square one" - as I can set it up using WZC.

netsh

though I don't remember the switches for the 2000 version command

In XP and beyond, you would use
netsh int ip reset outlog.txt

The switches for the 2000 version command are different, but you could get help for the command and figure it out, I'm sure.

A quick google lookup says to use, from a CMD prompt of course:
netsh interface reset all

Good luck
