Tips to fix IP address conflict
What is an IP address conflict? How could you fix an IP address conflict?
IP address is an identifier for system on the TCP/IP network. According to the IP address of the destination system network uses the TCP/IP protocol route messages. You may face many IP conflict errors messages in your system. The main reason for the most of the error messages is that two systems on the similar LAN network occupied up with the same IP address. When this occurs, both systems end up not being able to attach to network resources. Also, this may arise when two computers are assigned the same static IP addresses or one computer is assigned a static IP address that falls into the DHCP range for the local network and the same address is assigned to a computer by the DHCP server or if you have multiple network adapters etc.
Given below the methods to fix an IP address conflict:
- Renew IP address

- Update firmware
Renew IP address
By renewing IP address you could easily resolve the IP address conflict. In order to renew IP address you need to press Start button and select Control Panel. After selecting Network Connections from Control Panel window you need to right click on Local Area Connection and choose Properties. On the General tab, you need to select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and highlight it. Then click on Properties. After choosing both ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’ and ‘Obtain DNS server address automatically’ option you need to restore your IP address.
Change IP address
One method to resolve IP address conflict is that you need to change IP address. In order to change IP address you could make use of the built-in utility in Windows called 'Netsh', locally or remotely.
