TCP/IP overview: why reset?

TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The TCP part allows establishing connection between two endpoints and dictates how data is sent and received. It also ensures reliable and in-order delivery of packets. The IP part only deals with packets. In simple words, TCP IP is a set of communication protocols that are used to interconnect network devices on the Internet.

TCP/IP Reset reverts computer’s Internet Protocol settings to default and often solves connection issues. Resetting these settings is a common practice when dealing with “This Site Can’t be Reached” or “Unable to Connect to the Internet”or “Hmm… cannot reach this page” grey pages with error codes DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN or INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND.
