one or more network protocols are missing on this computer

Let’s face it — a home without internet connectivity is dull and boring to live in. It is even a messy, frustrating when you know you have the internet connection, but your computer says, One or more network protocols are missing on this computer.

And if you are on the blink of banging your head While you’re trying to connect to your home network, don’t fret it. Windows error where One or more network protocols are missing on this computer is common and possibly easy to fix as well.

What causes Windows error One or more network protocols are missing on this computer ?

The biggest problem is that you’re entering random code without understanding what it does.

Here’s what you need to do If Windows Error “One or more network protocols are missing on this computer occurs to you

1) Run SFC /scannow to check for windows corruptions that you may have caused. This process when done correctly is likely to be able to fix some of the missing or corrupt protocols.
2) Reinstall your network and wireless network drivers using the files from the manufacturer’s support page

Most forums and even Microsoft support will say that this is a problem with Windows System files but sometimes it’s not which is why ‘sfc /scannow’ didn’t show anything. It is actually a problem with the protocols but no one thinks that was as no one uninstalls them manually before this error appears.

Now I have seen this when handling different models of computers on different operating systems that it may not yield the results you expected, so if it doesn’t work  Most forums and even Microsoft support will speculate that this is a problem with Windows System files but that is not always the case,  sometimes its actually a problem with the protocols but no one thinks that was as no one uninstalls them manually before this error appears.

So Here’s What To Do


Go to Settings -> Network & Internet -> Ethernet (I don’t use Wi-Fi so if Wi-Fi is an option, try it) -> Change adapter options -> Right-click the one you are having issues with -> Properties -> Install… -> Protocol -> Install what is there (For me I had one called ‘Reliable Multicast Protocol’ so I installed that. I haven’t found this solution elsewhere so I don’t know what it’ll be for you.) -> You’re done!
It’s not always easy to wipe up as you go, especially if you’re warding off the hangry family as dinnertime approaches, but blotting away grease as soon as it happens is the ideal-world scenario. The longer those splatters and stains sit, the harder they’ll be to get off later.

How often you go deeper and give your walls, backsplashes, and cupboards a more thorough cleaning depends on how often you cook and make greasy messes. The kitchen tends to get grimier than other places in the house.

The basic process is to soften grease and grime with warm water, then clean with a sponge soaked in warm, soapy water, and finally dry with a dishtowel to avoid any leftover residue that would attract dirt and grime. Stubborn stains may call for a baking soda spot treatment or a spritz of distilled white vinegar.
