IP CONFLICT/CANNOT CHANGE LINKSYS PASSWORD

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi,

Whenever I use the internet, my computer always gives me a notification that I am having an IP conflict. I am the only one using the network, as it is a private/personal DSL. I am using a Linksys Router. 

I contacted my ISP and told them about the situation. They said that, there is a possibility that someone is trying to access my network illegally. Is that possible? My network is secure and my password is a bit difficult to manipulate.

If this helps, I also checked and my remote administration is disabled.

Anyway, just to keep it safe, I tried to change the settings and password, but nothing is happening. I followed all their instructions, but everything seems to be coming back to the previous setting. 

Do you have any thoughts on this?

Thanks.
