my old pc has been working on the network for over a year now then suddenly, whenever the network cable was plugged in and i would try to access the network the pc would freeze, i reformated the pc and put winxp back on, when accessing the network again the same thing happened. ive just swapped the network card with the one on this pc and it worked fine, the new pc does not freeze with the other computers network card so i was happy...

i have 2 computers linked up to a ADSL modem/Router, old machine ip was 10.0.0.10, new one was 10.0.0.14 but now when looking at ipconfig it says that the ip address is 10.0.0.10 on both machines, the new pc can see the old one when looking at workgroup computers but cant access, cannot see any machine on the old one. i can access the internet with no problem on both machines, i tried ipconfig /renew but that never changed anything, i think my router assignes the machines with an ip address, can u tell me what settings i need to change on my router settings.. DHCP address pool selection is set to system allocated, user mode is multi-use, lease time is a day..

why not use static ips on both machines? with only two machines on your network, it may be easier
dhcp was designed for network admins with lots of machines. With small networks, I always use static ip's. makes things easier to map :-)

i managed to give them different ip's by using ipconfig /release then ip config renew but they cant see each other on the network now but they are on the same workgroup. sometimes i can see the other machine but it says it is not accessible
