IP Config Help
I have DSL run into the house than it runs to a wireless router. There is one pc connected to it by wire. Than I have a laptop that is wireless it connects fine. But i have a ethernet cord connecting the laptop and a 2nd pc and have bridged the 2 networks on the laptop, so the desktop has internet. But the problem is that every hour or so it says I have a Windows systme error which is that the laptop and the 2nd desktop is using the same wireless connection. So my connection drops for a minute and than reconnects and than things are fine again. Is there a way to fix this without moving the desktop up to the router?

also why not get a witreless adapter for the desktop so it can connect directly to the router

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

Does that error really say "same wireless connection" or does it say "same IP address"?

It actually says there is an ip address problem not wireless! This is from the desktop connected to the laptop.

1. If this desktop is XP uninstall ipv6 because you don't need it, it sometimes causes problems, and then the ipconfig is easier to read.

Start - Run - ipv6 uninstall - OK

2. After you've uninstalled ipv6 and restarted the desktop, what is the laptop's IP address and what is the desktop's?

3. I'll post this if the dup. IP addresses continue.
