Hello Friends!

Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) gives you better IP allotment system on a network, DHCP installs on your router or your server machine, you just have to define the lower range and upper range as well as Subnet Mask.

DHCP automatically assigns the IP address range to the devices and save it in own console database, in accordance with this advance system the chances of duplication of IP within a network become zero.

In the DHCP server you can also reserve special IP's in connection with the special devices and through this procedure the special IP's will always assign to the special described machines.

Hello Friends!

According to my experience when two computer systems are attached with the same and given the same IP address for both. IP is identifiable information for every device within a network assigned by either DHCP or manually.

Keeping in view you have to change IP on one system.

With respect to the changing the IP at one of the both machines can be proceed as follows….

  • First of all please define the vacant IP address within your network.
  • Click on START
  • Write RUN and press ENTER
  • Write CMD in the edit field and press ENTER
  • A black screen will be open (text based editor)
  • Just write ‘ipcondig’ in the CMD command editor and press ENTER
  • Now, write ipconfig/release [this will release your current IP]
  • Now, write ipconfig/renew [this will renew the new IP in accordance with the new vacant IP at your network].

By setting up this process you will set a new (vacant) IP on your computer system and your problem has been resolved.

Best of LUCK
