Hi All,

A little background - I dual boot PCLinux and Windows XP and my wife runs WIndows XP
and we are accessing the internet through the same router.

Now 99% of the time I am using PCLinux and she is in Windows XP - but when I Boot Windows
and she is in windows at the same time we get an alert in the system tray that there is a
Windows System error ( there is an IP conflict with another computer on the system )

What is the best way to resolve this ?

Thanks in advance,
Ramchu

Check the network settings on each systems.

Start/Control Panel/Network Connections.

You should see an icon labeled as Local Area Connection. Right-click on that icon, left-click on Properties.

"Local Area Connection" indicates a wired Ethernet port, whereas "Wireless Network Connection" is for various types of wireless network connections including WiFi.

A window pops up, in the middle you will find a list of items, one of which is "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". Left-click on it and then left-click on the Properties button.

A new window will pop up, select Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically

OK...OK.

That should solve it, I think :).
