Sometimes changes happen in the background that may knock your PC off the correct network VLAN. To correct this, a lot of the times a simple release/renew will remedy the error:

  1. Press the Windows Key + “R” to bring up the Run prompt.
  2. Type “cmd” and press the “Enter” key.
  3. In the command prompt, type in ipconfig /release and press “Enter” (note the space between ipconfig and /).
  4. Once the operation completes, press the “Up Arrow” Key.
  5. Erase “release” and replace with “renew” (ipconfig /renew).
  6. Press “Enter” You have just refreshed your network connection!
