    Connect to the Internet is a machine to associate with an address like IP (Internet Protocol). With IPv4, the address consists of four numbers between 0 and 255 identifying the machine across the Internet. The addresses are longer with IPv6, the next generation of IP, but the principle remains the same. Often, the IP address is dynamic, that is to say, it varies from one connection to another. To communicate on the Internet, a computer sends and receives IP packets whose content adheres to UDP (Uniform Datagram Protocol) or TCP (Transmission Control Protocol). UDP transmits packets without establishing a connection between two machines while TCP connection supports the concept.

    Try the following command :
    • Netsh winsock reset catalog

    Then you will have to restart. Hope that doing this will solve your issue.

    The ISP offers a connection to several clients, and it simultaneously. It is possible to take advantage of this capability by connecting more than one machine to the supplier itself. This technique allows each machine to have an independent connection to the Internet and fault tolerance depends exclusively that of the ISP. The configuration is simple because there is enough to set multiple Internet connections instead of one, nothing more. Unfortunately, it will normally pay for each of the connections made this way.
