Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
IP addresses are generally assigned when you connect to another networking device such as a router, switch, or modem. You should first go to your Network Connections and right click on your networking device and click on properties. Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and hit properties. Then click on the box that says Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically. Now when you make connection with the router, switch or modem it should assign you an IP address. If this doesn't happen then you need to check your network cable, or wireless log in proceedure to find out why you're not connecting. These rules aren't for all systems. Some ISPs may require you to put in DNS servers and IP addresses. If the above doesn't help then contact your ISP to find out if there are specific settings. You can also view your Network Configuration settings by going to "Start" > "Run" cmd then in the window type /ipconfig /all. If you're connected properly you should have IP address, default gateway, DNS server and DHCP servers.

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.
Address Conflicts Happen
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
· A malfunction in the network's DHCP
server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple
· 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.
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.
IP Address Conflicts
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.
Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a
balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects
There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.
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.
following remedies for IP conflicts:
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.
