Hello All,

I have a network that is set up with a Linksys WAP 54G Wireless Access Point and a couple of WRE54G Wireless-G Range expanders. When I now boot up my laptops I get a wireless connection but then receive and error message saying "An ip address conflict has been detected" The error message will pop up every so often. The DHCP server being used is a Sonicwall TZ170 and IP address conflict detection has been turned off on the sonicwall. I dont see any errors in the sonicwall and this only happens on the workstations. The ip addresses do not seem to conflict when I look at what is leased in the sonicwall's dhcp server.

Is there a possible way to stop this error message from showing in the event log and also from appearing in on the workstation when it boots up?  

Anyone have a clue why this would happen?

Turn the conflict detection ON on the TZ170.

Are you sure that both the Linksys AND the Sonicwall are NOT BOTH assigning out DHCP addresses?

Also make sure that you do not have any statically assigned addresses that would conflict.
