So what happens when …A small error window just popped up on your screen saying that your IP address is already in use. How is this even possible, and what causes this IP address conflict?So what happens when …A small error window just popped up on your screen saying that your IP address is already in use. How is this even possible, and what causes this IP address conflict? Well, there are a few reasons why this can happen:

  • Your Network admin could have assigned two computers on a local area network (LAN) with the same static IP address.
  • Your internet service provider accidentally assigned two people to the same IP address.
  • The network’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server has allowed the same dynamic address to be assigned to multiple computers automatically.
  • Your system administrator has assigned a static IP address to a computer within the local network’s DHCP range, and the local DHCP server automatically gives the same address.
    These are just a few reasons why IP address conflicts take place. 

Here are some ways to resolve this issue:The Solution: Windows – If you have a dynamic IP address:First: Click the “Start” button and click “Run.” Enter “cmd” into the text box and click “OK.” The Windows command prompt will open.Second: Type “ipconfig/renew” into the command prompt and press “Enter.” This will refresh your dynamic IP address.Third: Check your network connection.
