Today when I woke up I started having internet connection issues on my DELL laptop running windows XP. Even though it was connected to the network, the laptop took really slow connecting to some webpages, or did not connect at all. At the same time my tablet did connect to all the same webpages. After I reset my router the webpages loaded on my laptop again.
However, after a few minutes several webpages started loading really slow and I got the following message: “There is an IP address conflict with another system” in my system tray.
After I renew the IP address the internet works again for a minute or so, but then it stops working, and sometimes the same “IP address conflict” message appears randomly again. I have no idea what is going on with my laptop.
In the properties of my Wireless Network Connection, in the TCP/IP settings, the options that are selected are:
- obtain IP address automatically
- obtain DNS server address automatically
Do any of you have an idea what could be wrong? I would really appreciate your help.
