Reinstall TCP/IP on Windows 2000

Posted on January 8, 2009 by Daniel Petri in Networking with

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.
