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.
  2. It attempts to automatically resolve networking issues; the tool is capable of performing many common troubleshooting processes simultaneously. The tool can perform the following actions:
    • Reset TCP/IP Stack for IPv4
    • Reset TCP/IP Stack for IPv6
    • Reset Windows Winsock
    • Flush DNS cache
    • Renew DNS registration
    • Reset WinHTTP proxy settings
    • Reset Internet Explorer proxy settings
    • Release/renew DHCP IP address
    • Reset Windows Firewall settings
    • Reset Windows Hosts file
    • Set Windows to manage wireless

This tool supports 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.
