Recently I've been having trouble connecting to my wi fi, it's slowly being getting worse and it's now at a point where it's practical unusable, a friend of mine suggested it might be an IP address conflict but had no idea as how the resolve it, and I being a computer dunce have less of an idea, any help would be greatly appreciated ;)

 

PS : I'm 65 years old and computer dumb, so you might need to have some patients if you decide you can help

Sorry about the late reply. Do you have any devices that you know someone set a static IP on? If not then the chances of an IP conflict is next to nothing.

IP conflicts typically only happen if someone is using a static IP that is inside the network's DHCP pool. The fix is to add a DHCP reservation so that IP only gets given to that device.

 

It's more likly you have some sort of interference problem, which has nothing to do with IP's. Do you notice your wifi signal strength changing alot, even if your not moving around?

IP conflict typically occurs when two or more computers ends up having the same IP address. One way to resolve this issue is to reboot the router. When the router reboots, it re-assigns the IP address to every device in the same network. 

 

Another way to resolve this issue is to releasing the prompt command and type "ipconfig/release" in the window. The DHCP server will then re-assigns the IP address.
