Windows Network settings App and Network and Sharing Center conflict!

John Arnold 0 Reputation points

I Have Windows 11 Pro on my small business laptop computer. And I use my computer to communicate weekly with different LAN networks all across the country. In the past, I would arrive at a site, set a static IP in my computer to connect to the equipment in a facility, and begin various updates and configurations over the network as part of my job. But recently, I've been experiencing HUGE ISSUES with the Network and sharing Center not applying my Static network settings properly into my computer. After trying to connect to a network and failing, Checking my configuration in the command prompt reveals that my laptop has incorrect settings that I cannot get rid of.

Long Story Short, My issue is the Network settings App and the Network and Sharing center do not reflect and work with each other. I've tried everything in the book like ARP cashe flush and IP release and renew. Nothing is solving my problem!!!!! So, is there a way to regedit the Network settings APP and disable it so I can continue to use Network and sharing center to config my static IP needs? There is 100% an issue between these two entities that needs to be resolved!!!

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    To further troubleshoot this issue, please kindly check:

    1.Navigate to “Network & Internet” -> “Advanced network settings” -> “More settings” -> “Network reset" to reset the netowrk and restart the computer.

    2.Create another local user and login to check if same issue persists for this user.

    3.Run below command as admin in CMD window:

    sfc /scannow

    to scan and repair any corrupted system files.

    4.Boot the machine in safe mode and check if statis IP can be applied.
