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 192.168.1.1.  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 192.168.1.1. 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.
