      Conflicting IP Addresses - Resolved

      Hi all.

      Im having a minor problem with connecting more than one PC at a time to SKY BB. I have my Desktop connected via ethernet and a laptop via wirless. It was all working fine then i turned of the router at the end of the day. Now when i log on which ever computer logs on first is the only one that can access the connection. It seems when the other attemts to connect it is being given the same IP as the first PC and i get a Conflicting ip address on network msg. It happend when the installer was here and it only took a min to solve but i wasent watching. Please help.

      Thanks

      Have you set the Laptop and the PC to automatically obtain an IP?
