What is the method to reset a network connection?
A network connection helps to provide an Internet connection between two computers. With the help of a network connection, you can configure the settings in order to share network resources. After setting up a network connection, it will be located in Network Control Panel. You can easily modify the network protocol by right- clicking on ‘Connection’ and then choosing ‘Properties’. Two types of network connection are available - wired or wireless network connections. For setting up a network connection on a Windows Operating System (OS) you need to have the proper requirements which include DSL or cable modem, wireless network card and a wireless adapter.
