Nowadays, Windows is the most widely used OS for computers but it’s by no means perfect. Despite getting the large number of updates, the operating system of Microsoft still suffers from many issues in use. For instance, Windows computers could randomly wake up, lose WiFi connection and so on. When Windows users open Event Viewer to determine what might have gone wrong, all they see is a mysterious entry: “6062 – Lso was triggered”.
“6062 – Lso Was Triggered”: Troubleshooting
Set A Fixed Channel In Access Point
If you see “6062 – Lso was triggered” in Event Viewer, there is a chance that your access point is configured for auto-channel selection. If auto-channel selection is enabled, the access point variables change on-the-fly based on interference, usage of the network, etc. Things would return to normal if you set a fixed channel in access point.
Run Windows Network Diagnostic Tool
Windows Network Diagnostic tool is good at resolving problems related to the network. You may give it a try before jumping on many advanced solutions.
- Step 1: Navigate to the internet icon on your taskbar and right-click it.
- Step 2: Select Troubleshoot Problems option from the list and the windows troubleshooter should start finding the cause of the problem.
- Step 3: Assuming that the troubleshooter manages to identify the root cause, it may also provide you with the recommended solution to fix the issue.
Resetting the network may help you resolve this issue. For an easier approach, you may use the network reset utility in Windows 10.
- Step 1: Navigate to the Start menu then go to Settings and then choose the Network & Internet option.
- Step 2: Select Status from the left navigation pane and scroll down to find the Network Reset option.
- Step 3: Examine the Network Reset information message after clicking the Network Reset link. Select Reset now when you’re ready to reset your network settings.
- Step 4: Choose Yes for the network reset confirmation window. This should start the process of resetting your computer.
After the successful restart, you may find that your network connection is no longer operational. This is because your network card was reset and its prior connection was released. You may now simply choose the network symbol, choose the network to which you wish to rejoin, and click Connect.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is the role of the Event Viewer?
Event Viewer is a Microsoft Windows NT operating system component that allows administrators and users to see event logs on a local or remote workstation. This centralized logging service may be used by both the applications and operating-system components to report events that have occurred, such as a failure to start a component or finish an activity.
How should I use Windows event logs?
Event logs are unique files that are used to record important occurrences on your computer, such as when a user signs in or when an application crashes. When some kind of events occur, Windows logs them in an event log. This often turns out to be very useful when the users try to find the information to troubleshoot the errors with Windows and other programs.
Event Log Service is mainly used by Microsoft Windows to maintain event logs, set event publications, and conduct auctions on the logs. It does this through The Windows Event Log service’s unique API that allows programs to manage and maintain event logs.
Is the Windows security event log important?
The Security log contains events relating to resource utilization (generating, opening, or deleting files) as well as valid/invalid login attempts. Administrators usually have control over which events are logged in the security log. If users run login auditing, the attempts to log in to the system are recorded in the security log. Thus, it’s best to set up the audit policy with caution.
Windows allows people to audit access to all files on NTFS drives and each access to a file is documented as a new event. That might create hundreds of events every second, overloading the event log and reducing system performance. Thus, when fine-tuning audit access policy, Windows users must ensure that only certain files and folders have auditing properties.
