IP conflict when there isn't!

Posted: 01-25-2009, 04:58 PM
Not sure whether this is the correct group but here goes.
The network is set up like this:
Router (DHCP enabled) connected into a 6-port Netgear switch from which
is connected a desktop via cat 5 patch cable running XP. A laptop, also
via cat 5 cable, also running XP. A D-Link AP200+ Wireless access point,
also by cat 5 cable, to which my laptop connects, running Vista, and
lastly a Samsung CLP 300N printer.

The printer has a static IP address of 192.168.0.40. No other networked
appliance has the same IP address, yet suddenly the Printer monitoring
software tells me there's an IP conflict. The printer still works but
it's a PITA as I have to "X" out of the error message. Doesn't seem to
happen all the time...
Has anyone come across this before? (The Samsung techs are stumped...)

Hi
Make sure that what ever is with static IP, the IP number should be out of
the range of the DHCP.
Make sure that the core IP of the Access Point is on the same subnet as the
whole Network and out of the DHCP range.
Download and run this program, it would give you a comprehensive reading of
every thing on the Network.

How do I find the DHCP range? (If it's in the Router config then I'm
handicapped as the router is supplied by the company my wife works for
and I am very loathe to mess with it....for obvious reasons!)
