    Reinstall TCP/IP on Windows 2000

    Posted on by Daniel Petri in Networking

    You may want to remove and reinstall TCP/IP to help resolve the following issues:

    • Bindings that are improperly configured on a server.
    • Dial-up clients that are unable to connect to a RAS server.
    • Network adapter drivers that do not properly bind to the protocol.

    To remove TCP/IP from your Windows 2000-based computer:

    1. Click to clear the TCP/IP check box from all dial-up connections and all LAN connections in the Network and Dial-up Connections tool.
    2. Install another protocol (NWlink or NetBEUI) to maintain a placeholder for each connection.
    3. Restart your computer.
    4. Reinstall TCP/IP, and then restart your computer.
