No longer able to edit, IPV4 Properties from Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center

CISPH 1 Reputation point

Has Microsoft phased out the option to edit IPV4 properties from the Control Panel utilizing the following path: Control Panel, View by Small Icons, Network and Sharing Center, Change adapter settings, right click on Ethernet adapter, left click on properties, check or highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPV4)? Noticed the change two weeks ago. Yes, it functions correctly using settings and network icon paths. However, we noticed a program that stopped functioning around the same time the Control Panel option changed.

    Short answer is no. Some specifics of what you try and error messages you receive may be helpful.

    Hi there,

    I suppose the IPV4 is editable from the control panel. I suppose any recent change to the PC or the update might have caused this havoc.

    You can try uninstalling the update and checking it out or try resetting the WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP, and IPv6 TCP/IP stack and see if that helps you out.

    1. Click on Start and in the search box, type cmd.
    2. Right-click on the Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a Command Prompt.
    3. At the command prompt window, type the following commands:
      a.netsh winsock reset catalog that resets WINSOCK entries to installation defaults.
      b.netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log that resets IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults.
      c.netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log resets IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults.
    4. Restart the computer and see if that helps.
