:(i have a netgear dg834g wireless router i have an acer aspire 5050 notebook running windows vista home premium (connected wirelessly) and a fujitsu siemens scaleo Pi running windows xp sp2 i noticed yesterday that the wireless internet connection on my laptop kept going on and going off etc. i then logged onto my home pc (siemens ) and found an error message on the screen : saying conflicting ip adress . i attempted to click on the speech bubble only to find that when i did it disappeared (i was hopnig for a wizard to fix the problem) but alas nothing. and know i find that the siemens pc,s internet connection that is connected to the router directly through an ethernet cable which worked yesterday doesnt work any longer and yet i can connect to the internet through my laptop albeit intermitantly. please help how can i solve this problem???
