Windows has detected an IP Conflict

Recommended Posts

I keep getting the dialog box that WIndows has detected an IP Conflict.   I have no idea what the conflict could be.  Could I have a virus?


When I click on the word Computer, it gives me the IP address  The router IP address.


What should I do?


I have run the scans, and I find nothing.

Most likely more devices in your LAN use the IP address Do you have all computers configured to obtain the IP address automatically from a DHCP server?

This is a bit strange noting that the alert is for your router's address. This usually occurs as noted below:


More than likely, one of the computers or devices on your home network has a static ip address, and is duplicating one that is being assigned by DHCP.
