Have looked at other threads on this but unable to quite glean the info I need. Have linksys adsl gateway. Had this connected to pc with winxp and laptop with win 98se and a linksys card. A friend set it up - got internet working on both machines but he couldn't get the network working properly. Recently the laptop card failed. As part of a general overhaul at the same time as getting a new card (3com xjack), upgraded laptop to xp and again tried to setup the network.

The current situation is that the laptop card seems to be installed ok, it recognises the linksys router and connects to it. Cannot connect to the internet with it and get the ip address conflict message.

Have tried setting both computers to automatically find ip addresses. Have tried manually setting the laptop to a different address. At present if I type ipconfig I have:

Main pc
ip address 192.168.1.100
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 192.168.1.1

Laptop
ip address 192.168.1.101
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 192.168.1.1

Please can someone give me some advice in very simple language!
