    all settings > network & internet > reset network..... Windows 10 latest release

    after reboot, will have problems or need to enter info?

    Troubleshooter only finds can't find proxy

    hoovering over ethernet icon shows "Asus_2GEXT internet connection. When I connected to Asus_2GEXT, the "label", still shows.

    after reboot, & ipconfig renew release, Ipconfig with *Con* failed, tried turning WIFI off, unplug re plug ethernet cable, & reboot router

    Thanks

    Done hover over ethernet icon says, Network Internet Access. Ok! It also says "unidentified network no internet access"

    network shows 4 WiFi, assume those are the unidentified no, internet

    Asus
    Asus_5G
    Asus_2GEXT ext- extender or booster
    ASUS_5GEXT

    Is that tick the connect automatically & done, or tick all four, or...

    Not understanding this. Before reboot slow speed I ticked 'Asus' auto connect. After the reboot, "unidentified network, no internet access" msg is gone!

    I beleive its a "hit or miss" thing.

    A few months back I was having network issues and ran it. After reboot, my network connection was completely hosed. When I tried to access the router GUI via browser; e.g. 192.168.1.255, the router's previous IP address, I couldn't. Ipconfig showed me that was no longer the gateway's address but it was now 192.168.1.1. WTF? Using that IP address showed the router somehow had been reconfigured for a bridge connection to a built-in Wi-Fi router I hadn't used in ages. Note I am on an Ethernet connection. Have no idea how all this occurred. A hard reset of the router got everything back in order.

    Note that I had used this Win 10 network reset feature previously and also since the above incident w/o issue. Hence, the "hit or miss" assessment.
