Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When Windows resets you network adapter it simply does the following

Releases your IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway then through the process of DHCP negotiation it tries to acquire a new valid IP address thus getting you back on the network.
You can do the same thing manually by opening a command prompt and typing

Ipconfig /release <b>then press enter</b>
Then type in
Ipconfig /renew <b>and press enter</b>

after that type in
ipconfig and your output should have an IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway

Hope this answers your question
