Windows 7: How to restore default Arp settings in Command Prompt?!

How to restore default Arp settings in Command Prompt?!


I recently read an article about cmd and I did I few changed like "ipconfig /flushdns"
and "ipconfig /registerdns" and all worked well for my domain server website. Then I read the article about how i can also delete enteries by putting "arp -d" and pressed enter and i again did the same but included "arp -d*" then when i went to load my website domain "", i thought it was going to load faster but instead it's loading way slower than it's suppose to.

The slow process started ever since I entered in command prompt "arp -d" and "arp -d*" and now it's really slow. Does anyone know how to restore the default for the arp command or how to restore the whole command prompt in it's defaulted version?!

I really wish I didn't enter "arp -d" and "arp -d*" because i read from article that it could solve the servers and it instead made it worse and now the load time for my website server is more slower than usual. I then took a look what "arp -d" does on another article and saw that it removes all ARP enteries and I have no idea what was removed because now my domain server is extremely slow. I found article on clearing the ARP cache, should I do this? Or can I somehow restore the default version of the ARP enteries that has been deleted?

I wish I didn't edit anything on cmd, now i don't know what to do..
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

My website was loading a lot faster up until i entered "arp -d" and "arp -d*" on command prompt, now i have no idea what has been deleted. Is there any command prompt commands to restore to the arp default? or is there a command to restore the whole command prompt to the default version?
