"Warning-System Error: There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network."

That's the error I get frequently, and my internet shuts off often. Does anyone know why?

That could be a lot.. Do you have more than computer on your network?
Which OS do you have? How are your printers installed?

Do any of your systems hibernate or standby? This happens freqently on a DHCP network when a hibernating system goes into hibernation with it's current IP address.

Since it's no longer on the network, the network is free to reassign this IP address to the next computer that signs on.

Then, if the hibernating computer is awakened, it'll claim the same IP address - resulting in the conflict.

This can also happen if you mix static and dynamic (DHCP) IP addresses in a router that isn't "aware" enough to reserve them.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
