How to Reset your TCP/IP Stack under Windows XP/2000/2003

I got myself into some kind of voodoo/Bermuda Triangle situation where my TCP/IP stack was boogered and when I said "IPCONFIG" I was greeted with a single line, and NO listings of any of my Adapters. However, Greg Hughes gave me this magic command line:

netsh int ip reset logfile.txt

Lord help me I don't know exactly what this did, but it fixed it. I wonder if I'll pay for it later. :)

When I use to work tech support (many years ago ;), that was always the fix when people's stack got screwed up (or to get running again after they uninstalled AOL). There should be no repercussions.
