It means another device on the network has the same ip as your machine.

If your system is set for a auto IP from the router just reboot again and it should get a new IP from the router :wink:

I meant restart your computer.

It happens sometimes. Best thing to do is check what other device has the conflicting IP and make sure it isnt set to static :wink:
