    Ethernet shows unidentified network, but internet works.

    Strange issue that just started today. My Ethernet adapter shows unidentified network and none of my apps have internet access, however my web browsers work just fine. I am even making this post from the adapter that supposedly has no access. I have been searching around for a solution, but no problem seems similar to mine. Check out the screenshot below. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Solved it by running these commands in admin CMD:

    1. netsh winsock reset catalog
    2. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
    3. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Then did a reboot.
