    I have been assigned my own static ip address by the college but others are found using it,and the system shows ip conflict,can i some how lock my static ip so that no one other access it. Only a few static ip addresses are high speed and are already known so everyone tries those first,the left overs are near to waste,it gives a transfer rate of 15kbps only.Its an urgent situation plz help out!!!
    Thankyou.

    You need to talk to the college's IT Department.
    If that IP is assogned for your use only, they may be able to block it using the MAC Address of your computer/router so only you can use it.

    Did you try your IT department? You need to have access to your LAN firewall/router and that device has to be able to block rogue devices from the network. Or can try to manually assign that ip and never turn off your machine after you connect to the network, but that may work only if others get off network first.

    what it has to do with this???
    I am asking a simple question,can't i lock down a static ip and keep it reserved for my own use so that it appears to anothers to being used...even if i am not using it, I can't ask my IT dept. to help me out cuz if they came to know abt. this stuff they would simply shut it down,and i am using my android device which works on static ips only,so it would be a great loss for me....

    I am not sure this is a proper place to ask for help on going around your IT departments policies. You've been told at least twice here that to do what you are asking to do you will need administrative access to the firewall and/or router on your LAN and that there is no other way around it.

    you must deal with this via your college IT dept
    Nothing you can do. the college have to set up their network correctly & they obviously haven't
