  1. In Windows XP go Start then Run or in Vista or Windows 7 press the Windwos key and R together. In the Open box, type cmd then press Enter. At the Command Prompt type ipconfig /renew and press Enter. Then type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter. Type exit to leave the command form then restart the computer.
