Duplicate ip address resolution for dummies

I'm staying at an inn where there is wi-fi. I have a tonne of work to do and need to put both laptops into service as each has unique programs. The first is already in use, and running a long program so I don't wish to interrupt it. I booted up the second, and received a message on both browsers that says "Duplicate IP Address".

Please describe for me in simple terms how to resolve this issue. This has never happened before while using public systems.

  1. Do you have a static ip address? If you dont, go start, run, type "cmd", type in "ipconfig /release" and wait for that to finish, then type in "ipconfig /renew" this will give you a different ip address from what you have now. If you have a static ip address then you need to change the ip address, and theres not much more that you can do about it.
