    So, I saw this for the first time the other day when I turned on my computer. "Another computer on this network has the same IP address."

    Should I worry, or is it just a network glitch.

    Thanks.

    I think its just a network glitch. I get it sometimes too when a few computers are switched on. I really dont think its anything to worry about.

    Make sure both computers are getting ip address automatically and that they aren't set manually.
