Hello! I'm having a problem with my wireless connection and I believe it is because of windows. When the computer starts up, I get a message that says that windows is having an IP conflict with another device in the network. However, there is no other device in the network.

When I enter ipconfig in the command line,

I have an IP address for the wireless connection but nothing for the LAN connection. I'm anything but a computer whiz but this doesn't make any sense to me since the only way I am able to connect is through my LAN connection.

Anyway, I don't even know if I am in the right forum. I just thought since the message was coming from windows this is where I should start.

I have windows xp with centrino.

I've been trying to troubleshoot all day and I'm getting a little frustrated. Any help is appreaciated.

Thanks :tazz:

What kind of network? You have, I assume, a wireless router? Then you say LAN.

Are you connected to the network both wireless and hardline?

Are your IP's statically set, or dynamically set.

Need a better description of network
