IP Conflict

Hello fellow Kirupians,

I have been experiencing some problems lately. At random times, Windows displays a message saying:

A conflict has been detected between IP adress and the system that has hardware address 00:10:B5:10:62:4A.

Oh, wonderful Windows, that helps a lot :puzzled:

This has something to do with my WiFi connection. We’re using a wireless 802.11g router, that has both WiFi as cable. The computer downstairs is connected to it by cable, and I am via WiFi. The conflict is with the computer downstairs, because downstairs it also displays this message. However, my WiFi connection fails after this message has appeared, and downstairs the connection stays established.

This sucks, because it happens very often and I need to reboot all the time.

Can anyone help ? :slight_smile:
