Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
Somehow your computer has the same ip address as another on your network (could be a router, TV, xbox, etc.). This can be solved by rebooting. If the problem is not solved by rebooting, then you have your network configured manually, and you will need to either change the address or set it to auto. One other thing that could cause a conflict is if your computer and another one both have the same name, but that does not seem to be the problem, being as you specified IP. Just a little explanation - the IP address is how your computer sends and receives information - via an address, very much like your home address - no one else can have the same one. As long as your computer is the only one (or only thing) online it won't matter - but if there are 2 or more things it does matter. At our home we have satellite TV, so the satellite box has to hooked up to the Internet, and it has its own IP address on my network.

Hi, well this means that there are two PC's that have the same address, such as 192.168.0.1 or whatever, usually this is because both PC's are connected to a network, and may have a Static address. To stop this Disable DHCP, in Services. Or change the static address to another one.
please find below a service and user manual, this will show you what to do.
Below is a tutorial below.

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.
