Do you use the Hibernate or Sleep options? That can cause duplicate IP addresses. When this happens, your system hibernates/sleeps and saves the IP address that's in use. But the network sees it as not being used (since the computer isn't communicating), so it reissues it. Then, when you resume from hibernate/sleep you'll still have the old IP address which has since been assigned to someone else.

I'd suspect it was one of the other users on the network that's using Hibernation/Sleep then - and you're being assigned the IP address that they'd stored when they went to sleep. Contact your ISP to see what they can do to prevent this (issuing you a static IP would be the best bet, but that'd restrict their ability to utilize the number of IP addresses that they've got).
I have no clue about how to turn off the warnings - nor do I think that it's wise to do so. Rather, I'd right click on the connection and select "Repair". That'll stop the popups until the next time you conflict with the "sleeper".

If a repair or ipconfig /release and /renew don't work - then it's not the problem that I've described.
That being the case, it'd have to be (IMO) either the drivers for your network card, or the Windows internet settings that aren't working properly. To repair TCP/IP and or the Winsock stack in XP:
The only other solution that I've seen mentioned is to run ipconfig /all to see if there's any duplication of IP addresses there. The supposition being that 2 devices may have the same IP address. If so, then you can disable one of them and that will stop the error message.
