Default Sharing...

i am trying to share my wireless network connection and recieve an error upon doing so. i know i am doing it right because i have done the same procedure at my cousins and it worked flawlessly. I go to Network connections-> Local Area 1(Wireless Connection)->Properties->Sharing->Tick the box, after i tick the box it says that i cannot share the connection because another computers ip address is 192.168.0.1

Any ideas

-Thanks in advance.

Do you know if there are any other wireless networks that could be interfering with yours? Or is his computer connected to a DHCP server through his isp that needs to be disabled.
Go to Newtork Connections ->LAN connection( or which ever one is hard wired) ->right click ->disable, or disconnect.

Even if there is a small signal that is being picked up the DHCP server will have a problem.

You can do a trace route, in command if you need to find where the ip is coming from on his computer, too, if needed.

Ok, that isn't an error. That is just asking if you want to enable connection sharing. If you click yes, it says that you will have an ip of 192.168.0.1. That is all that the message says.

Sounds as if the same IP is being used by two different devices.

192.168.X.X isn't this the IP address used by routers and the such? I know it is can not be routed on the Internet.

So, are you still having problems sharing you signal or has the problem changed? The ip that you posted, was that the one from your computer, or the computer that you are trying to get connected?

Its a lan address any computer can use that address range.

Try assigning your computer a different ip address to see if that fixes it, I am surprised you even have a .1 address, usually the first ip address in a subnet is assigned to the default gateway, i.e router port.
