Make sure there are leases left in the IP Range on your DHCP server,

Otherwise, is it possible for you to give the machine a static IP?

if you are using DHCP, two machines should not have the same IP address.

You need to look at your DHCP server for the LAN.

Hello,

If someone else is using this IP, it means that its on Static IP. Dhcp server cannot deliver the ip twice.

Also, you can check on your dhcp server for this IP if it match with your Mac address. If yes, delete it (you will have another first free ip)
