Windows has detected an IP Address Conflict


You try to access the Internet and you get the error message “Windows has detected an IP address conflict”.


An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN (Local Area Network) or the Internet have been assigned the same IP address. IP conflicts usually occur if static IP addresses have been set up incorrectly. Two computers normally render each other and this makes them unusable on the network.
