IP conflict on router-- two computers fighting over the same IP
Recently, the wifi connection on my computer has from time to time become very slow when I'm at home. Sometimes when this happens I receive a warning "your IP address [....] is being used by another device."
I'm using a macbook, with a linksys router, and several other devices are connected to the internet here from time to time-- an iPhone, an HTC phone, and a Windows laptop.
I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this because I can't find an option to pick another IP, but it seems stupid that something wouldn't shift if two devices are fighting over an IP... it's not like the IP matters, as long as it's unique.
