The problem is that I can only connect one computer to my home network at a time. I have a hardwired desktop and several wireless devices(2 laptops, nook, PS3). I can connect any of then to the system and get full internet access. However, if one computer is connected to the network and I try to connect a second, I get a Windows system error pop-up balloon saying that there is an IP conflict and I can not connect to the internet. The wireless connections are strong. When I assigned a static IP to my desktop, I could connect one wireless computer to the network but not a second.
All computers are running XP and set to automatically assign IP's.
I have a Motorola modem and a Linksys router.
I have tried turning off/on the power to the modem and router, but that did not fix the problem.
I know I could assign static IP's to my computer and PS3, but that is a work-around and does not really fix the problem.
Thank you for any help and I apologize if this problem has been addressed already in the fourm
