Hi all, just less than 5 minutes ago a slightly worrying message just popped up from the bottom of my screen about an IP address conflict. Its gone now but what I think it said was

Windows Error: There is an Ip Address conflict with another computer on this server.

It may have said something slightly different but thats about the gist. The reason I'm worried is that I have literally made no changes to my network recently whatsoever, no computers added or removed, no printers added or removed, nothing. I connected as normal, and that message just cropped up. My computer still connects to the internet fine, as I'm using it now. My worry is that we might be being Hi-jacked for a connection. Is that a possibility? It's a relatively trouble free matter for me to go to the main computer downstairs and check the logs for the router, but that is very time consuming not to mention the computer is slow.
I understand what the error message means, that this computer has the same IP as another on the server, I just can't understand why or how one of the 4 computers that are on this server would have had their IP's changed. I use a desktop Medion pc, using an Edimax Wifi adapter to connect. The router is a phillips router with a perfectly secure security key.
