  • In the DNS to find which machines are the same ip, then change the ip of one of the machines

  • On the computer that is receiving the IP conflict error, release and renew the IP.  If that doesn't work, find the computer with the same IP and change it.  It must be one with either a static IP or one that is getting it's IP from another DHCP server.  You should only run one DHCP server on a network.

  • Well, you haven't given us much information which will make it harder for me to provide an accurate answer.

    If you're using a router at home that is DHCP enabled, then you can simply access your router ( in your browser, using your router's admin credentials, and then look at the DHCP table. Find the two PC's with conflicting IP addresses and go in and change the IP of one of them in Windows.

    Alternatively, you can open cmd (type CMD in the start menu, then right-click it and select "Run as Administrator...") and type in ipconfig /renew to release your current IP and obtain a new one from your router's DHCP.

    If you're in a business setup, then it gets more complicated.
