the following message appears at the most inappropriate times while online........" The system has detected a conflict for I.P address 000.0.00.00 ( actual ip address not indicated - here ), with the system having hardware address 00:00:00:00:00:00 ( which is the obvious mac )

please advise
THANKS

It means that someone else on the network has been assigned (or is using) the same IP as you. Did you assign yourself an IP or is it being assigned by a DHCP server?

cyber's reply:

DHCP server follow up
the DHCP server is probably the correct way that i have to approach the previous networking ip address dorm question. It is perplexing, in that other students also have gotten the same type of ip address conflict. I take it that that would more than likely indicate that DHCP is in effect. What to do from here? Kindly advise further

Again, THANKSi

So you do not have a static IP address then, correct? You are getting it from the DHCP server? Just need to make sure because if everyone is being assigned an IP address from the DHCP server then there should be no conflicts. I could see conflicts arising if certain students are assigned themselves static IP's.

user the following

start>run>winipcfg>select your network card>release>renew


that should obtain you a new ip address.
