EDIT: Woops, where it says "C" in the title, i meant, IP Conflict

OK, so basically its been fine for the two months that we've had this, but recently we've been having alot of problems with our Modem. It keept dropping and then Reconnecting, and stayed online for about a minute or so, then went off again. The wireless router was fine until some day, the Wireless Icon on my Netgear Wireless Router, just goes off and stays off.

Now, ive seen a similar post about the modem problem, it is now fixed thanks to that patcher. (i think)

now im not sure whats happened about the router, but he who shall not be named, decided to click Repair on the Wireless Connection Icon (This is the Computer that RECEIVES the Wireless Broadcasts) , then after that im not sure if it was the problem, it stopped Working. It may have been when it said "Renewing IP Address". Im saying that because i saw something else related to IP Addresses while on this PC (The one with Modem and Router) saying something like "IP Conflict with another Machine in this Network". Does that have anything to do with it?

I also have a log from Event Viewer:

Your computer has detected that the IP address for the Network Card with network address 0090D0895BB3 is already in use on the network. Your computer will automatically attempt to obtain a different address.

This comes under the "Dhcp" category, under Warning

another Is:

The system detected that network adapter \DEVICE\TCPIP_{9A972BEB-0266-4653-87AC-B1D67CDACB27} was connected to the network, and has initiated normal operation over the network adapter.

This comes under the "Tcip" Category, under Information, im assuming thats what i should be seeing.

What else need i say for you to help me?
