Receiving "Duplicate IP Address" message


Cannot connect 2nd laptop on public wi-fi. A small window comes up that says "Duplicate IP Address" on both IE and Firefox. There are more users on the network, but I can't get the second laptop to give me a working browser. Any hints?

  1. Open a command prompt and enter ipconfig/release and then ipconfig/renew.
  2. and if that doesn't work you may need to get the provider of the wireless to reboot their router.
  3. if ipconfig release fails with some error message you might have a static ip on the laptop that u'll have to change to DHCP..
