About the UITS Windows Network Repair Tool

The UITS Windows Network Repair Tool has two purposes:

  1. It provides a quick way for the UITS Support Center to collect information for tracking network issues on campus, including IP addresses (IPv4 and IPv6), MAC addresses, and operating system information.

    • Reset TCP/IP Stack for IPv4
    • Reset TCP/IP Stack for IPv6
    • Reset Windows Winsock
    • Flush DNS cache
    • Renew DNS registration

    • Reset Windows Hosts file
    • Set Windows to manage wireless
