Solving problems with tethering wifi from an Android phone

Once I tried to connect from Win10 to a hotspot running off Google Pixel 2 (Android 8.1.0) connected to T-Mobile (tethering) and it worked for a while, but one day it just broke. Connection would work for 5-10 seconds allowing to load one website maybe, but then it threw some DNS errors. Setting DNS server manually didn't help, also ping timed out.

The solution (from elevated cmd prompt):

netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
netsh winsock reset catalog
ipconfig /flushdns

And restart the computer.
