Make sure that you are not connected both wirelessly and wired to one of the pc's, dissable the wired ethernet cards on all of the pc's as this may be the problem, and check in the DHCP client list in your router, refresh the list if you are able and see if there are two references to one pc with the same ip address. 


assuming you have DHCP enabled on the router this should not happen as long as your wireless adapters are set to obtain an ip address automatically.

IP Conflicts in a work place

An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN or the Internet have been assigned the same IP. IP conflicts between two computers normally render either one or both of them unusable for network operations.

How IP Address Conflicts Happen

Two computers can acquire conflicting IP addresses in any of several ways:

· A system administrator assigns two computers on the LAN the same Static IP Address.

· A system administrator assigns a computer a static IP address within the local network's DHCP range (dynamic IP range), and the same address is automatically assigned by the LAN DHCP server.

· A malfunction in the network's DHCP server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple computers.

· An ISP accidentally assigns two customers the same IP address (either statically or dynamically).

· A mobile computer is put into standby / hibernate mode and then awakened later.

Note that other forms of IP conflicts can also occur on a network. For example, one computer may experience an IP address conflict with itself if that computer is configured with multiple Network Adapters. System administrators may also create IP conflicts by accidentally connecting two ports of a network switch or router to each other.

Recognizing IP Address Conflicts

On most Microsoft Windows computers, if you attempt to set a fixed (static) IP address that is already active on the local network, you will receive the following pop-up error message:

The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address.

On newer Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects the issue:

There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

Sometimes, especially on older Windows computers, a message similar to the following may instead appear in a pop-up window:

The system has detected a conflict for IP address...

On Mac or Linux computers, a similar message will normally appear on screen.

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.

Identify the peripheral conflicting with the router and change the network address on one of the two. Their setup programs should give you the possibility to do so. The address should look like: 192.168.2.x
x ranging from 0 to 9

My Dell Latitude D400 intermittently drops its IP address. Sometimes this happens in the middle of reading a page, but more often, it happens when clicking on a link to a subsequent article. It is siting...

Renew your ip address. The computer will automatically regenerate another one so that the two pc don't conflict.

You can can reset your IP address by :
1. Opening the Windows Command Prompt located in Start -> Accessories or
Start -> Run -> Type in either "cmd" or "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
2. Type in "ipconfig /release" (without the quotes)
3. After releasing the IP, typie in "ipconfig /renew" (without the quotes)
If the instructions above doesn't work, you can set a manual IP address by :
1. Going to Network and Dial Up Connections in the Start -> Control Pannel
2. Going to your local area connection
3. Click "Properties"
4. Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
5. Then again click "Properties"
6. Selecting the "Use the Following IP Address"
7. Entering an IP address available on your network

One of five PCs not connecting to Belkin 54G router

I would connect it to the router using a lan cable to verify that it will get a IP address and connect to the internet. Write down the IP information and make a static wireless connection with that info. It should work hardwired and wirelessly with this info. If it doesn't work wirelessly you may have a bad wireless card or you may find that their is already conflicting static IP info in the connection that has to be removed. Make sure that on your internet protocol (TCP/IP) properties that you have selected "Obtain an IP address automatically" and Obtain DNS server address automatically". Clear any settings that you may see there.

Im try to set up an wireless connection but it always seams to have a problem, one of them is that the sistem says that i have an ip comflict! what can i do?

If your getting that message on your computer that means the IP address that your computer acquied from your serverrouter has a duplicate in the network. The very first thing that you need to check is whethere your computer has a an IP address that is manually assigned to it, to check this just go to Network Connections under Control Panel(assuming your computer runs on Windows XP). Right click on the Wireless Connection icon and go to properties, under Local Area Network Properties you will find several check marks under This device uses the following; Client for Microsoft, File and Printer Sharing, QoS Packet Scheduler etc... Look for and highlight Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click Properties, under the TCP/IP Properties you have 2 option for both IP and DNS server. Make sure both is set to obtain. If your still getting the same message Right click on Wireless Connection and choose repair so tha your router/server will provide a new unique IP address, wel that will usually resolve the IP address conflict on your computer.

Wireless internet connection

You haven't specified if the host computer is able to access the internet. Ip Address confict can be one of the reasons why the laptop isnt able to connect and we can have a series of reasons why we have this IP Address conflict - 1) There is no wireless encryption defined. So, we have neighbors connecting to the wireless network causing IP Address conflicts. 2) The laptop is not able to renew the IP Address after the lease expires. This can mostly be resolved by restarting the computer and in certain cases flusing the TCP/IP stack. 3) There is a static IP Address assigned to the laptop in the router's DHCP range which is conflicting with the host computer. I would suggest you may initiate a chat with me or anyone else who has expertise in routers to get this successfully resolved. That would definitely save your time. Good luck
