Troubleshooting

I Get an Error Message Telling Me That Multiple Devices Have the Same IP Address

When I attempt to start up one of the devices on my network, I see an alert stating that a device has already been assigned the IP address and that IP services are being shut down. How do I correct this problem?

Two devices on the same network cannot have the same IP address. If you start up one device and see this error message, you have two or more devices trying to use the same address. Check the configuration of each device to see which devices are using that address (for Mac OS X machines, use the TCP/IP tab of the Network pane of the System Preferences utility to see how the computer is configured). Make sure that each device has a unique address, including an AirPort Base Station or other device that is sharing the account.
