    Hi everyone,

    I'm using an access point via ethernet hosted on my laptop.
    A programme required me to untick the sharing option in my ethernet connection's settings and now that I reactivated it, it doesn't work anymore. I basically just undid the previous change to the settings, allowing my virtual network to use the ethernet connection again, it won't let it though.

    Can anyone help with this? Restarting Windows, recreating the hosted network, deactivating etc. did not help. I also don't know which IP address I have to assign to the virtual network in TCP/IP4, but that doesn't seem to be important, devices can connect to the laptop, just not to the internet.

    Is there are way of completely resetting the hosted network?

    Thanks in advance,
As Seen On
