There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network

I get the message above when starting my computer. Could not find any help on the windows help center can help someone


Hi DavidTinker,
The reason is very simple, as says the error, the Internet Protocol (IP) address conflict is there, this means that there are several devices, modems or routers or portable computers that exist on the same IP address that your computer is. In this post, we will tell you how to diagnose and fix this problem.
Follow these steps in the order and check if it helps to fix the problem:
a. turn off everything on the network, all the machines and any other network device, such as network printers and NAS drives.
b. turn off the router and the modem.
c. turn on the modem, wait for a steady data light.
d. turn on the router, wait two minutes.
e. turn on network devices and computers, one at a time.

  • Getting the error "There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network." on XP computer

    "There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network." I keep getting these messages on my computer. -What it means and how to solve this?

    IP addresses are assigned to a computer in one of two basic methods: the address is assigned automatically by the device "in charge" of the network (in your case, the wifi hotspot router) or the address is set manually on the computer.

    If the address is assigned automatically, the router is "smart" enough to assign a different address for everyone.  However, if your computer has a fixed or 'static' IP address assigned manually, it may conflict with an address assigned by the router to another computer.

    You do not specify, so I'm going to assume that your computer is running WIndows XP...

    1. On your computer, open the network connections (start > run > ncpa.cpl > OK)
    2. Right-click on the icon for your wireless adapter and select Properties
    3. Click on the 'Général' tab, select "Protocol Internet (TCP/IP)" from the list of "this connection uses the following items" and click "Properties".
    4. Select the boxes for two on "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
    5. OK your way out.

    This will not adversely affect your computer somehow.

    If the two "automatic" settings were already selected, it is likely that your wireless adapter is managed by a utility provided by the manufacturer of your computer or your adapter wifi rather than Windows.  There should be a wifi icon in the system notification area (near the time display).  Click or right-click on it and see if you can access the menu of configuration settings or to determine at which it is useful.

  • Windows XP SP3: There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

    As mentioned, I am under Windows XP SP3.  Starting around June 14, 2011, I get this error message: "There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network."  I didn't any problem access the internet, which is weird considering all the forums I've read the user has had problems with this.

    I followed the steps to solving this problem.  I checked the IP addresses on all devices connected to my network. none match the computer, I get this message.  I tried refreshing and renew my address this computer's IP, but that has not solved the problem.  I've updated my modem drivers; who has not solved.  I checked the settings on my router but nothing.  I have turned off all devices in the House connected to the network, unplugged both the modem and the router, plugged the modem back in (anticipated for a constant signal), then plugged the router and gives him the time, but I got the message again.  I ran scans anti-virus and anti-malware, but neither picked up something.

    I am out of resources in this regard.  I guess that something might be wrong with the router, but that doesn't seem right.  I had no problems with the router as I bought it a year ago, and as I mentioned there are no connectivity issues (always as fast as I'm willing to pay my provider).  Two things have popped up in my mind that could possibly impact this: all about 14, there was a Windows update that has pushed down and the message began not to burst, until, after downloading (but I have not had this same problem on other computers that have received these updates) , and there was a very, very brief power surge (second meaning) in the House around the 16th which caused no (to my knowledge) do anything stop but not a hand a few clocks.  Thank for any help with this!

    No. except if you must move the computer to another network or if you are not actually that responsible for the network.

    As long as you are in charge of your network, you can configure your router to reserve an IP for your machine OR set up so that the DHCP range is, for example, all the IP addresses above to x.x.x.100 and you you give an IP address below that (say x.x.x.99).

    In the first case, you let your computer configured as DHCP - your router just recognize it and gives this machine (and only this machine) reserved IP address.  For the latter, need to change the settings in Windows after changing your router so the DHCP range does not interfere with the static IP address range.  I would say that the latter is more likely to be a problem than the first, especially if there is a chance that this machine moves from one network to the other.

    Personally, I use the booking method on my home network.  In this way my laptop, iPad, etc. all get a given IP address every time (an I know) and I have to set up the real device special somehow.

  • Windows tells me there is an IP address conflict with another system on my network. It's wasting my internet connection. How should I do?

    Windows tells me there is an IP address conflict with another system on my network. It's ruining my internet connection, how to fix?

    1. Click the Start button
    2. Highlight connect to >
    3. Click Show all connections
    4. Right-click on the connection to the Local network
    5. Click on properties
    6. Click on Internet (TCP/IP) Protocol
    7. Click on properties

    Now look and see if obtain an IP address automatically is selected in the option button or if the use of the following IP address is checked.

    If the latter, you can change the last number of the IP address for anything else. Each window and then click OK.

    Example: It can be set to and you want to change it to 192.168.1. 2.

    If it says still in use, then change to 3 and 4 and so on until there is no conflict.  Don't mess with any other numbers such as subnet mask, a default gateway or DNS servers.

    If the radio button is set to obtain an IP address automatically, then the problem is prolly with your DHCP server. Since I always assign my own IPs, I'm not sure what set which would result.

  • IP address conflict with another system on the network.

    Our operating system is Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002.  WE have set up on a small network of 6 computers.  On three computers, we get a window that opens by telling us that "the system has detected an IP address conflict with another system on the network."     Any ideas as to how we might resolve this problem?

    Hello Jackie,.

    Also, try the following.

    Method 1: Check the settings for dynamic host, Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on the router. Contact the manufacturer of the router or the access to the same provider.

    Method 2: Release and renew the IP configuration.

    • Click Start. Click Run, type cmd, press ENTER.
    • Type the first command enough ipconfig and press ENTER.
    • Then type the second command ipconfig / renew and press ENTER.

  • Windows system error: there is an IP address conflict with another system with the network. How do I remove this error message?

    I just installed a new internet provider and all of my connections are working fine, but I constantly get this "Windows system error: there is an IP address conflict with another system with the network." I have my electrician of the internet modem connected to my office. I have also two wireless devices connected to the appearance of the Modem wireless. I constantly get this error message mentioned above, and I want to get rid of it.

    This means that all that he says.  Your Windows system has an address that already exists on your local network.  Turn your system off and use a working system to locate this address and to which unit he belongs.  In most LANs, the router's DHCP server.  You may be able to ask the router which addresses are used and see what device uses this address, but I suspect not.

    Duplicate addresses can occur when two systems received the same address manually, or when we got an address in the DHCP of the router range. It is unclear when this happened because he is not in control of the address and puts the address duplicate to a second system.  You need to track down, ensuring that all addresses manually asigned are out of the DHCP range, that you book the address of the router, if you want the device to use this address, or configure all devices to request the address of the router using DHCP.

  • We have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC loaded on a computer, and I want to share with another computer over the network.  Must I pay $ 120 to get the serial number?

    Is it really necessary to pay for another FULL of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC version so it can be used on another computer?   Even if we are on a network.

    As far as I know, Adobe programs are not running on a network... If you have computers A and B, and the program is on A, it cannot be run on B on the network, it must be installed on B to work

  • If there is a "IP address conflict" a neighbor could connect to my router?

    I get a message when I opened to the top/log my computer, it is the only one in the House, but I live in a block of six flats, saying: "There is a conflict of IP address with another system"

    Did you have to enter a password to connect to your iPhone? If you did you are encrypted.

    If you are not encrypted, your router is open for use by a person within its area of emission/reception. How to encrypt depends on the model of router, but in General, tell him what you want the password wireless. Your manual should tell you how to do this. If you need assistance please provide the make and model of your router, I am able to get a manual from somewhere.

    I recvd a phone call yesterday telling me I had a computer at risk with the help of the same IP address or ID in China.  I thought it was a hoax.  They said they came from Microsoft, but when I tried to recall today, there was a message stating that the Group was not available.  Then I get on my computer and get the label "there is an IP address conflict" and I panic, what happens if someone in China is using my computer?  How can I stop this?  I ran antivirus and anything analyses.    Help, please?

    To resolve IP conflicts restart all computers, peripheral and the router at the same time.  Chances are it will fix

    Does anyone have a simple way (for a dummy) to solve this. If I disconnect my wireless router and laptop and turn the two again this sorts the problem temporarily, but it does not provide a definitive solution.  I use a new laptop and my old one has been scrapped, so I do not know whence this 'conflict '.  My old laptop had Windows XP operating system and my new Windows 7.  I hope that someone can provide a solution to this annoying problem.
