    I just came home after a two weeks' overseas trip and when I went to the computer I had no Internet connection, and the message 'One or more network protocols are missing'. The computer has been on while I was away, but not being used, so the only thing that can have happened is some automatic update.
    I tried the suggestion to use 'netsh int ipv4 install' and then to restart, but that did not make any difference.
    Any other suggestions?
    Does ipconfig /all show valid IP info from your dhcp server? Does ipconfig /renew fix it for you?

    Well I've tried every solution I've seen thus far and nothing has worked. This error occuring happens at completely random times. I've scanned my registry for errors, no problems. I've replaced my router/modem and am still having this issue. It also is occuring on a tablet, its internet connection gets lost as well. The only thing that gets me back on the internet is unplugging my router/modem and then plugging them back in but the error persists. If anyone knows of other solutions that has worked, feel free to spill the beans..

    Using cmd netsh ipv4 install plus disabling the relevant ipv6 adapter worked for me. Thanks folks!

    Had the same problem on a Dell laptop. After much hair pulling, found it was fixed after uninstalling Avast Pro anti-virus.
    Hope this helps someone.

    Hello, I just had this very annoying issue for a while, and scouring the internet proved to no avail. However, I stumbled upon the solution by myself. Simply go into an elevated command prompt and enter netsh int ipv4 install and restart your computer.

    This is what solved the problem for me, though I had already tried a few suggestions (resetting winsock, giving permissions in NSI, etc) so that might have something to do with it. If moderators are displeased with me making a new thread about it, the please move it to where it should be.

    Best of luck.
    Interesting.

    What I tried:
    netsh int ipv4 install - didn't work.
    Went into the adapter settings as suggested elsewhere on this thread, disabled both IPv4 and IPv6, pressed ok.
    Enabled them again (6 then 4, pressed ok) - and wallah (I think it was the IPv4 that did it).

    Thanks a mil for the suggestions, this was driving me mad, really appreciate it.

    After two hours of frustration, things worked after I did the following (of course, don't know whether these were the 'magic bullets' in my case, or just coincidence!):

    I vaguely remember some (long) time ago reading about IPv6 being 'difficult' so began trying to solve this problem by disabling it. It's easy to do and doesn't involve resetting, restarting, registry hacking, or using the shell. Here's what I did. . .

    Click START, click SETTINGS.

    Click NETWORK & INTERNET.

    Scroll down and click 'Change adapter options'.

    Right-click the relevant network adapter and click 'properties'.

    Remove the tick next to 'Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6 )'.

    Click the 'OK' button.

    That's it, Job Done.

    I don't know if this is a permanent solution but I'm back surfing the Internet.

    As an aside, I noticed that there was no tick next to 'Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol' (above the IPV6 entry) which may, or may not, be relevant.

    If the process listed above proves NOT to be a permanent solution I will let you know.

    So I just encountered this issue, and searched for a solution on my phone (WiFi was still up, computer just couldn't connect). I figured it out, mostly thanks to this forum, and I thought I would list what I did that didn't work, and what finally did.

    What didn't work:
    --Windows troubleshoot network problems (no surprise there)
    --sfc /scannow
    --netsh winsock reset catalog
    netsh int ip reset
    ipconfig /flushdns
    --remove the tick next to 'Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6 )' in adapter settings
    --netsh int ipv4 install
    --netsh winsock reset catalog
    netsh int ip reset
    ipconfig /flushdns

    What did:
    I went to my Network Connections, right-clicked on my Local Area Connection, clicked Properties, selected Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), clicked Properties, and selected both 'Obtain an IP address automatically' buttons.

    Changing that immediately allowed my computer to connect, and the first thing I did was come here, make an account, and post this. For those still having this issue, might be worth a shot.

    I've had this problem for a couple of days now, but first encountered it back in March. I've found no solution to it. I've tried pretty much everything I've found online. I just don't understand what causes it. Why are there so many possible solutions? How can these protocols be there one moment and missing the next. Why hasn't Microsoft sorted the damn' thing out?
