Comment: There is an IP conflict with another computer on this ne
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?
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.

Re: Comment: There is an IP conflict with another...
Hi, 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.

Both the routers are having the same default IP addresses that's why they are conflicting. Put only one router in the switch connected the a PC on the same LAN. Open your browser and put the default IP address (like for most of the routers 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1), hit enter and give the login ID and password (in most of the cases, admin/password orv admin/admin), go t configuration> IP settings> Static IP Mode> Change the IP from 192.168.x.1 to 192.168.x.2 (or any other other number except 1 and <254). Save and reboot. Now enjoy both routers plugged in simultaneously in the same LAN. :)
Verify that you haven't manually set the IP address of the desktop machine to an IP address that conflicts with another device on your network.
If this is the case, change the network settings to use Automatic or DHCP IP address assignment.
If this doesn't fix the issue, I suggest trying a different network card than the QHM8100R3D to see if that addresses the issue.
From what I can tell you are using Mozilla Firefox Try using Internet Explorer if ip address id not valid it will tell you Internet Explorer cannot display webpage In order to renew ip address these are the steps you will want to take:
1. Ensure the equipment is connected correctly(Ethernet cord from modem to Internet port on router
2.Open network connections Win XP:Start/Run/Type ncpa.cpl
Vista/Win 7 Start/search bar/type ncpa.cpl
3.This will bring you to your network connections window
4.If using XP: Double click on wireless connection and hit the support tab. Ensure it is assigned by DHCP and the ip address should start with 192.
5. If Vista Or Windows 7 Right click on wireless conenction and hit properties. Uncheck version Internet Protocol Version 6
6. Click and Highlight internet protocol Version 4 and hit properties
7. ensure that it shows obtain ip address and obtain a dns server automatically
8.After go to Command Prompt (Win XP) Start/Run/Type CMD
Windows7/Vista:Start Start/All Programs/Accessories/Right click on command prompt and hit run as administrator then hit continue type in these commands.
1.netsh int ip reset reset.log
2.netsh int ip delete arpcache
3.netsh winsock reset
9. Restart Computer hope this helps please rate thank you
U need to make your wireless network a security enabled network & don't share the wireless network key to a unreliable person.
Steps to create a security enabled wireless network:-
1> login to router setup page;bydefault ip address of belkin router is 192.168.0.1/192.168.2.1
2> Open a internet browser on a hardwired desktop/laptop connected to your router,clear the address bar completely and then type 192.168.0.1 or, 192.168.2.1<it depends on your model no of your router>
3> Go to Wireless Tab,changed the wireless network name(SSID)
4> Change the wireless network key as well;it will be good if you use WEP key if you old XP computer,otherwise use WPA-TKIP if you vista/win7 computers
5> Lastly on your computers,you have to seach wireless network name & give the wireless network key(for the very first time)
In case of any clarity feel free to contact belkin tech support
Installing a Two Router Network
Installing a router to work as the second one on a home network requires special configuration. Do the following on the second router to ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:
1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for details on its client mode configuration support.
2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP address setting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a two router environment. Check the second router's IP address value and reset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of the first router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).
3. Disable DHCP - To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the home network, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.
Instead of adding a second wired router to an existing network, consider adding a network switch instead. A switch accomplishes the same goal of extending the size of a network, but it does not require any IP address or DHCP configuration, greatly simplifying configuration.
If you set static IP in your computer change the last number of your static IP address in your TCP/IP setting of your LAN. The two unit shouldn't have the same IP address say 192.168.1.5 the other shall be 192.168.1.25 or don't use the router's default utility page IP address.
You don't need software for the router. Is your wireless encrypted or open? Just view avaiable networks with your xp machine and choose your network to connect to. If you do have an encrypted signal use the vista machine and type in the ip address to the router in your browser window. I think belkins router ip is 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.0.1 Hope this helps, let me know
Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
first thing to do is to dissable the ethernet connection in network connections on your notebook so as the ip address does not conflict.
assuming it's XP and assuming DHCP is enabled in the router settings, right click on your wireless conection in network connections, properties>TCP/IP line, highlight it and then click properties again, then ensure obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, apply and ok, close window.
If neccasary run the wireless network wizard in new connections in network connections.
Open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that 'never dial a connection' is ticked, ok and close IE.
Open IE and click refresh a few times.
