In the past I have had our two PCs networked and going fine (one has ME and the other Win95). I recently had to have my default PC into a PC clinic to have a Sidewinder Joystick Precision 2 installed (for some unknown reason I was unable to do this and even the Clinic also had problems - eventually all was sorted out satisfactorily).

However I am now unable to network the PCs. All cables appear to be in the correct slots. I followed the procedure outlined in the Home Networking Wizard section of the Microsoft Help and Support, including creating an installation disk for the second PC.

When I now turn on the second PC I get the following message on my Default PC - "The system has detected a conflict for IP address 192.168.0.1 with the system having hardware address 00:60:08:3F:7B:CC". The second PC at the same time displays the following message "The system has detected a conflict for IP address 192.168.0.1 with the system having hardware address 00:10:B5:D1:A9:4b. The interface has been disabled".

Are you able to give me any advice on what I can do to get the two PCs networked once again?

Many thanks

you have more than one system with the same IP address.

change the address of one system to 192.168.0.2
