hi everyone, lately i installed a wireless network here at the frat house, we still use the cables (i bought a router that has both wireless and the normal stuff) but now we have some people that are using the wireless. i personally still use the cable and now that we have wireless, every now and then i get an error message saying that there is an ip conflict on the network and because of that sometimes my internet doesnt work, i now that there is a way to release the ip that i have and get a new one but im not sure if that will solve the problem. anyone knows a way i can take care of that for good? by the way, i dont know how to release my ip. thanks

If the router is setup to do DHCP then there should be no problems. To slove this I would recommend that you disable the broadcast of the SSID, enable either WEP, or WAP though some older devices will not do WAP. Make a strong passowrd by using both capital and lower case, numbers and sepical chars. to release the IP address:

Start -> Run -> type cmd -> type ipconfig /release

Then to renew:

type ipconfig /renew

Hope that this helps.
