      Langa with some rockin’ great content here!

      “Network reset” deserves to get some attention, especially if you’ve ever needed to do a “netsh int ip reset” but couldn’t remember how to phrase it.

      BTW if you don’t have a mouse, you can hit Start, type “Network reset” and press Enter.

      I’m glad this was posted. A few years ago I actually ran into an issue with Airplane mode on windows 8.1 and for some reason something wasn’t allowing me to turn it off through the network settings.  I had to hold down two keys just to manually turn it off.
