How to Troubleshoot “Windows has detected an IP address conflict” Error Message

Like any other computer, your computer gets an IP address when it connects to a network or the Internet. An IP address is a unique address and identifier for your computer. The IP address system allows networks (or the Internet in general) to distinguish and recognize computers.
