My computer and my bro's laptop are both running on a wireless router. Today both the computer & laptop got this error message.

"Windows - System Error
There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network."

Hmm I think this post would have been better placed in the networking section - although im sure you will get the same dedicated help here in this section too :whistling:
Im not an expert in networking but just a little thought.... have you got DHCP auto enabled in the router or/and have you reserved any addresses and reserved the same IP twice by mistake ??

Very easy to fix,

Right click on the "wireless" connection icon and click "repair", it will find an unused IP address and use it.

They are both trying to connect with the same IP address.

(Only necessary to do it on one of the computers, either one)

There is another way to do it to but this is the easiest one.
