Conflicting ip addresses with computer and one laptop

    Question

  • I have recently bought a new laptop which has Windows 7. When I try to connect to my home's wireless network. It first came up with the 'conflicting ip address' balloon. Now whenever I connect to the wireless internet it usually works for about 10-15 minutes then disconnection, when this happens my wireless network doesn't even show up, and no other device can connect to it.

    I have tried the 'ipconfig/release' and 'ipconfig/renew' but it comes up with this...

    “no operation can be performed on Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected”

    I then have typed in 'ipconfig/all' and this is what it comes up with...

    Please can anyone help? It's becoming very annoying as I can't seem to use my wireless network at home, and if it does connect then it kicks everyone else off the network until I disconnects.

Answers

  • There are various other factors, apart from those suggested by BrianD_22932 and Luciano_Carolino, that cause the issue:

    1. Channel conflict.

    2. Issue in the router.

    Solution:

    1. For channel conflict, change the channel setting in the router page (192.168.1.1). When two or more access points operate in the same channel, either/both of the access points will most likely be inoperable.

    2. Contact the router manufacturer support for assistance.

  • If the wireless network is going down completely, for all devices, and not just failing to connect on the one machine, then you should check out your wireless router. There may be either a setting or a defect which is causing the problem. (It seems unlikely that the configuration of a laptop would take down an access point...)

    Good luck!

  • Check if your Wireless Network Router has the latest firmware update.

    A long ago I had problems with my D-Link Wireless Router. The signal was weird, sometimes very strong and sometimes very weak and usually a lot of problems to connect the wifi network happened. After updating the router's firmware the problem was solved.

    Best Regards,
