I ran IPConfig command ,and it shows 2 Different IP address:
192.168.50.129
192.168.50.160

However I have one Ethernet Network connection for 192.168.50.160.

Any idea where the 192.168.50.160 is coming from ?

Thanks

if you go to advanced settings you'll probably see the IP address added to the NIC.

An better then static setting … use DHCP for IP Configuration, “obtain an IP address automatically”. It makes life easy. DHCP is running on almost every Router or other network device. If you do want to keep it static, make a reservation on DHCP server or push the lease time to 0.

checked the advanced settings, no  160 there, just 129

I am using VMware workstation on my laptop, I do not think I need DHCP

Some unknown thing was acting up I guess...

I fixed it with IPCONFIG/Release  then IPCONFIG/Renew

Could you send us output command of "ipconfig /all" ?
Probably, on your vm setup and it  assigned multiple IPs, NIC  can have more than 1 IP.
Why not just delete the multiple IP  with the followng command for reseting WinSock and TCP/IP,
and reboot computer,  and then reconfigure  your IP setting ?

netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset reset.log

Hope understand your question completely.If not, pls pt it out

what you did to let it back to normal ? If not, it might NOT solve this issue (please try command of "ipconfig" only without all)
