After un plugging Belkin Router, I'm now just plugged straight into my router via fast ethernet - Local Area Connection 1. I now get the following just before startup (blue backround) or when its started as a warning:

" There is a duplicate Name on the work "

I seem to remember setting names, but dont know where all this is on the PC. I believe I entered Network name "Flat" MSHOME or something. I've looked in the properties of the local area connection, but no names or anything are stored there. Do I have to insert the Belkin router CD again, or is this duplicate name on the network on my pc somewhere, if so where???? PLEASE HELP....

You should probably have the same workgroup name. But each computer needs to have it's own unique name on the network. Depending on what operating system you have, depends on how you change it.

For Win9x, right click on Network Neighborhood / Properties / Indentity

For Windows2000 and XP, right click on My Computer / Properties / Computer Name
