ip address conflict

  El jimbo 19:52 23 Jun 2007

Cannot connect to internet as I have an ip address conflict.

Have installed new network card and tried different cable.

When I use ipaddress /renew command, I get 'cannot find dhcp server'.

Current address

The command you are trying I think should be ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew, but this is for renewing an IP address that has a DHCP active across the network.

Try ipconfig /all note the space before the /

Tried it.

dhcp enabled and auto configuration enabled.

No IP address can be used twice simultaneously, so you will need to change the address of your computer or the device that it’s conflicting with it.

As you IP address comes from your ISP click here to get the IP address for your connection.

There should be no reason to turn off the router unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Have you checked the event Viewer and Device Manager for any errors?

  recap 20:53 23 Jun 2007

Have you ran the Network wizard to set up a network?

device manager shows no problems.

New network card working fine.
