Debugging · Network

Error: An error occurred while renewing interface local area connection: The system cannot find the file specified.

I encountered this frustrating issue when connecting to different Ethernet networks at clients. Doesn’t matter if I run ipconfig /renew or ipconfig /flushdns as Administrator.

Steps to rectify this issue:
1. Make sure firewall is not enabled for the LAN -> I have never had to turn this off, so straight to step 2
2. Open command prompt as Administrator
3. Run netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
4. Restart your computer.
