Question about Belkin (F5D6230-3) Wireless Router
We have 1 x PC Vista & 1 x PC XP Home, both are desktops networked via a Belkin F5D7230-4 Wireless G Router. Error says, There is an IP conflict with another computer on the network. The xp system is unable to diagnose the problem. The Vista systems offers to diagnose & says there is a bridging problem & is also able to repair it but we have do do this many times per day?
What other items are on your network? Do you have a network printer, a wireless access point, a second router, or fixed IP addresses in either computer?
A utility that's easy to use is a product called Angry IP Scanner http://www.angryziber.com/w/Download get the 2.6 stable version and save yourself some time :-)
The idea would be to start one computer on the network, run ipscan, then add the second computer and run it again. It's pretty self-explanatory, you put 192.168.x.1 in the left box and make the last octet equal 255 and press start.
Please take time to post back and let us know what you found for a conflict.

Use either computer to login to the router eg 192.168.0.1 or just type www.routerlogin.com into the internet browser URL bar. Under LAN Setup, click LAN settings, and from the menu that comes up, turn DHCP Server 'on'. This will assign IP addresses for your computers automatically.
Hope this helps
PS Your router's 192.168... number might be different from my setup.. try 0.1 or 1.1 or 2.1 etc at the end, or just try that routerlogin method.

Resolving IP Address Conflicts
Try the following remedies for IP conflicts:
1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.
2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.
3. If your home router is believed to have a faulty DHCP server causing IP conflicts on the home network, upgrading the router firmware may resolve this problem.
