so I just got my router in the mail today, and I for the life of me, can't get the xbox 360 to connect to the internet at the same time as my computer.
everytime I try connecting my xbox to it, it says "there is an ip address conflict with another system on the network"
I tried going to my routers homepage but that doesnt let me connect.
I can't access my router page unless I connect my internet cord directly to the router. but then I can't access the internet.
does it have something to do with me having a dynamic IP?
I am highly confused.
An ip conflict is where your xbox is trying to use an ip address which is already in use by another computer.
Set your router to obtain an ip address automatically.
Set the xbox to do the same.
Set your computer to do the same on your ethernet connection or wireless connection or both depending how your connecting.
Go network connections or connect to windows xp or network and sharing centre>change adapter settings> right click local area connection(ethernet) or /and wireless network connection>properties>internet protocol version 4(TCIP4) ensure obtain an ip address automatically is selected and obtain and dns server address is selected click apply and ok.
I assume by dynamic ip address you mean this is assigned by isp which is your public ip address and will change periodically by your isp and is the address that is viewed from internet.
The 192 address is your internal address assigned by your router and doesn't affect or be affected by public ip.
