IP Conflict Message - Windows XP Laptop - not on a network
Posted on 2006-07-18
Hi, my boss has a Windows XP laptop that he is using at home. He has broadband access (Covad). At home he is not set up on a network -- it is only this one laptop connected to the dsl modem and a wireless router. He is frequently getting the message "IP conflict...." -- I have checked the TCIP connections and they all show "obtain an address automatically"... How is he getting a conflict message when his laptop is the only piece of equipment on the connection at home and how can I correct the message? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
