Solved IP conflict with other computers on the network

Post by mikepanman@aol.com on Fri 21 Aug 2009, 7:35 am

How do I change the IP address on a computer in a network. The computer can not connect to the internet because of the conflict. I am using a links wireless router on the road runner internet server.

Solved Re: IP conflict with other computers on the network

Try the following for IP conflicts:

1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.

2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.

FOR NUMBER 2


  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
  2. Click Run... on this menu.
  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the
    quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears
    on the screen.
  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
