A number of computer in my office has suddenly started getting IP conflict errors.

All these machines have static IPs which I know are not being used by any other PCs.

If I click diagnose then it says that DHCP is not enabled, I don't want DHCP enabled as they have static IPs.

If I do switch it to the DHCP then they get internet connection but it does not resolve the domain, it just says 'unidentified network'. This has not been an issue before.

This problem started with one user the other day and now 'seems' to be spreading to more people in the office.

Please note the IP settings on each PC are definitely correct.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated?
