reboot the router.

Are you running a static setup or dhcp server?

Make sure that you have the TCP/IP settings in the network adapters properties screen set to auto and not to manual.

TBH better setting everything up static, less chance of conflicts.

If you are running automatic addressing try this to renew the address in future,

try this, on the pc/laptop showing the ip address conflict, open a command prompt....
then type ipconfig /release
once that completes
type ipconfig /renew
This should pick up a new address from your dhcp range and work... :thumbsup:

If you have DHCP running on your switch it will dynamically issue ip addresses to devices that come onto the network.
static means that you assign the addresses and address range and type into the propeties of your network cards, not reccommended if you do not know what you are up to and with respect I am guessing you dont!

Have you ever used Internet Connection Sharing through any of the machines? What operating system are you using on the PCs?

What make router is it and was it supplied by virgin
#16
If it is a router supplied by virgin unplug the router from the mains shut down all the computers wait for five mins then plug the router into the mains and wait another five mins, then power up the computer that is hard wired to the router if that connects ok power up each computer one at a time and check each one.
[FONT='Times New Roman']That’s assuming you have installed the correct network ID and password to connect wirelessly[/FONT]
#17
[FONT='Times New Roman']Forgot to mention virgin supply a modem (little black box that plugs into the router) disconnect that from the mains to when you disconnect the router from the mains, then wait five mins, then plug the modem into the mains first wait five mins, then plug the router in and wait five mins then switch computers on like I said in previous post [/FONT]

No it's make is linksys.

Hi assuming you have setup the router with the correct settings, I am assuming this as you have access with one of the computers through the router,
Follow the instructions from my previous posts
Unplug from mains the router and the modem, shutdown all computers and wait 5 mins
Then plug modem in first and wait 5 mins
Then plug the router in and wait another 5 mins
[FONT='Times New Roman']Then turn each computer on one at a time and check for connection[/FONT]
