Re: IP gets changed automatically
Thank you for your response
Actually I am not able to connect to Internet .When my laptop Ip gets
changed to 169.y.y.y ,I receive a IP conflict error message stating that
another PC in this network has similar IP . I recently took a broadband
connect from Sify . 70% of the time when I try to connect the internet my
laptop gets 10.17.x.x Ip ,but once in every 2-3 days when i connect it gets
changed to 169.y.y.y . I am not using any router . I directly connect that
lan cable provided from Sify to my Laptop.
As this is a broadband connect I was assigned a static Ip address (10.17.x.x).
I have manually assigned the same in the Manage Network -> IPv4->Properties.
But still once in a while Ip gets changed and I can know this by doing a
ipconfig where it shows that the Automatically IP adress is shown as
and Duplicate IP as 10.17.x.x (duplicate) . I tried Ipconfig release but
that didnt work too.Does this have anything to do with DHCP?
