Windows – System Error
There is an IP address conflict with another system on the
Could anyone help us to solve this error?
Thanks a lot.
Windows – System Error: Conflicts on IP Address
Every device on a network has an IP address so it can communicate with the other devices. The IP address is a bit like a telephone number for computers.
When devices on your network connect to the router for the very first time, they go through a process called DHCP.
Basically, your computer asks the WiFi router for an IP address when you turn it on and connect to the Internet and so does your Nintendo DS.
The WiFi router has a pool of IP addresses that it hands out. It should give one to your computer and a different one to the DS.
For some reason – it looks like the router has given the same IP address to two devices.
Every device on the network must have a unique IP address otherwise they won't function properly. It's a bit like two different people having the same telephone number.
Now how to resolve it.
The best thing to do would be to reboot all of your devices including the WiFi router. Turn off the computer first, then the Nintendo DS. Then turn off your WiFi router. You need to leave the router switched off for about 10 minutes. Make sure you don't turn on your computer or DS during the time your router is off.
After 10 minutes, turn your router back on and let it go through it's startup cycle. It will take about 2-3 minutes to get started. Once it has started back up and the lights on the front have settled down.
You can start to turn on the other devices. Turn on your computer and turn on your DS. Hopefully your router will hand out a unique IP address to each device and you will be working normally.
