Does anyone have an idea how to get rid of the error message that says that my PC has an i.p. address conflict?

You need to change the IP address of one of the computers. You don't say what operating systems you are using so it's going to be difficult to suggest how exactly to achieve this. – ChrisF Dec 11 '10 at 13:32

It is more about correcting your computer IP address rather than trying to get rid of the conflict error message.

A conflict means you have ended up with an IP address already present on the network.
This could be because you 'randomly' happen to pick such an IP address when you setup your computer or because the local network administrator has messed up their DHCP settings.

If you are using a few computers in your home network with statically setup IP addresses, it is more likely that you used the same IP twice then a DHCP problem.

If your IP is set using DHCP (that is, if you did not manually set it up) then contact your system administrator. If you set it up manually, change it another IP within the subnet.
