I am running Vista on my laptop and I access the Internet through a LinkSys wireless router. I have several systems accessing this network wirelessly and all of them are using the same IP address. This cause my access to get an error message that all systems are using the same IP address and I need to change the IP address on this system.

How would I change the IP address? Any suggestions?

Confirgure the router from a wired computer, not wireless.
Once you're in the router screen, make the router to be a DHCP server. There's a checkbox.
You can also tell the router how many IP addresses to issue, all 254 or limit to a range of several.
Don't forget that a wired connection may get one IP and wireless another, so double the range for convenience.
BTW, Linksys instructions in their pdf file do describe how to do it.

When you're done with the router, in every computer, under Networking, set TCP/IP properties to obtain IP address automatically. And reboot.
Check ipconfig /all in every computer. IP addresses must be different.

Start, Run
type cmd and hit enter
on the cmd window type ipconfig /all
