When I click on Allow Other Network Users to Connect Through This Computer's Internet Connection I get this error.
"Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) cannot be enabled due to an IP address conflict on the network. ICS requires the host to be configured to use XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. Please ensure that no other client on the network is configured to use XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (thats not the actual IP obv lol)

How can I do that?

To help you with this problem please list your network hardware (computers, routers, printer and etc). Something on your network is using the IP Address of We need to find that piece of hardware and change its IP address.
