      Conflicting IP address

      Hi ...after a rocky start with sky broadband we experienced a calm for a little while but recently we have been gettin grief once again. We have a network setup between the desktop (host) and a laptop(guest)...when the laptop is switched on the internet runs very slow and there are frequent disruptions, and at time there is a message popping up stating there is a conflict of IP addresses....sky customer service were no help as their technical team 'do not' deal with such issues ahem yh right so if neone has experienced nething similar or can help it would be greatly appreciated.

      Re: Conflicting IP address

      Does the laptop have a fixed ip address, (check using IPCONFIG /ALL)?
      If not and getting an address from the router's DHCP pool, then make sure that the pool addresses that you specify don't overlap with an fixed IP's that you might have.
