IP Address conflict

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Charles Kenyon, Mar 15, 2005.

  1. Don't know that this is the correct newsgroup. I am working on setting up a
    wired network between my laptop and desktop computers. I am getting a
    Windows - System Error: There is an IP address conflict with another system
    on the network.

    What does this mean?

    TIA

    What this means is that another machines (computer, printer, device) on your
    network has the same IP Address.

    Now what you want to ask is how to resolve this issue. 1st you need to know
    if your network issue IP Addresses dynamically (DHCP) or what some would say
    "automatically gets an IP address we you power on.

    Or . does your network have only static addresses. If it's static you would
    want to make sure you're not attempting to use an address that is already in
    use by another machine (i.e. computer, WiFi access point, printer, etc...).



    If your network is DHCP you would want to assure that your machine doesn't
    have the same MAC Address of another machine on the network.

    I'm running WindowsXP Pro on both machines and ran the network setup wizard.

    Both have the same Network name and different computer names and IDs.

    My Ethernet switch shows green for both connections. The icon in the taskbar
    shows connected.

    Please provide ipconfig information for each computer, so we can
    diagnose your problems.

    Start - Run - "cmd" - Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the
    command window. Open Notepad, make sure that Format - Word Wrap is NOT
    checked!, open file c:\ipconfig.txt, copy and paste entire contents into
    your next post.

    Every NIC card has a different MAC Address it is programmed into the
    card at manufacturing, unless you are doing some kinda MAC Address Spoofing.

    At this point the Laptop looks good it is setup to receive its IP
    address from an DHCP server which in this case is 192.168.0.1 which I
    will assume is your router. However, the Desktop is setup for static IP
    address and is set for the wrong IP address, it is set for the same
    address as the router address, which is why you are getting the "System
    Error: There is an IP address conflict with another system on the
    network" error message.

    You have one of two options.

    1. You can set the NIC properties for the Desktop PC to "Obtain an IP
    address Automatically", this will allow DHCP to do it's thing. Its
    setting for IP Address will then look some thing like the following,
    IP Address 192.168.0.19x where 'x' will more that likely be a 1, and the
    setting for Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DHCP Server, DNS Servers, will
    be the same as that for the Laptop.

    or option number 2

    Go in and choose "use the following IP Address" and manually set the
    following to:

    IP Address to 192.168.0.19
    Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway 192.168.0.1
    DHCP Server 192.168.0.1
    DNS Servers 192.168.0.1

    Try these setting and get back to me, if this does not get you going
    then repost your new ipconfig setting using the same command as you
    previously use.

    Oops, in my last post I left a one (1) off the IP address it should have
    been: IP Address to 192.168.0.191 NOT IP Address to 192.168.0.19,
    although 192.168.0.19 would more that likely have gotten you going as
    well, however, I was trying to say consisted here.

    Mr. Smith Guest

    This isnt true. I have run across many NIC that have the MAC Adress of:
    00-00-00-00-00-00.
    Why is this?

  11. Thanks. I'll give it a try tomorrow and let you know the results.

    It may have just not been reporting it correctly, but every NIC card has
    to have a unique MAC address that is the way it is. the address will be
    something like this 00-07-E9-7B-95-DE.

    If you go to this web site and enter the first six hex character it will
    report the Organizationally Unique Identifier of the board. The
    remaining 6 hex characters ID the board.

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, worked late today and had a
    day from Hell. Put we will put that a side and get this out to you.

    Click on the following Start > Settings > Control Panel > then Network
    Connections. Now RIGHT click on the connection called Local Area
    Connection and the LEFT click on Properties, this of course bring you to
    the Local Area Connection Properties window. Now, click once on the
    Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to high light it then click on the Properties
    Button. This of course bring you to the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
    Properties window where you can choose the "Obtain an IP
    Address Automatically" or the "use the following IP Address" this is
    where you enter the info for your settings.

    Let me know how you do and get back to me with the results.

    Thank you for sticking with me on this. I'll give it a try tomorrow. Please
    also excuse my habit of top-posting. I'm used to the Word newsgroups where
    it is the norm.

  16. I've decided to give up and hire someone to come in and install a network,
    probably with a dedicated server. Thank you for your attempts to help,
    though.

    I have been following this thread with interest because I have a
    similar problem - two wireless computers that have some sort of IP
    conflict. They are both set to get IPs automatically - and I assumed
    that the router (a Belkin) would be smart enough to use different one.
    The odd thing is that when I plug one of the computers into the router
    with a wire, there is no conflict - only when I try to use both
    wirelessly.

    Any suggestions on where to look for the problem?

    Thanks.

    You may try to post your ipconfig info.

    Please provide ipconfig information for each computer, so we can
    diagnose your problems.

    Start - Run - "cmd" - Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the
    command window. Open Notepad, make sure that Format - Word Wrap is NOT
    checked!, open file c:\ipconfig.txt, copy and paste entire contents into
    your next post.

  19. Let me also ask the same question. I often get the IP Address Conflict. I
    have one wireless (11.b router) and one wired computer. I looked into the
    details of the message (under computer:manage:...) and see a physical address
    that doesn't match either system. Here is all the stuff from the wired
    ipconfig command. Thanks in advance
