    I looked for this but I got other IP configuration problems back as search results.

    The pop-up has 192.xxx.x.x in use by __________, DHCP Server 192.xxx.x.x

    I left off things I'm not sure I should share online but you get the idea of what this thing says.

    What is this? How can I fix it?

    Is it this message, just with different IPs and MACs? (See bottom of post.)

    If it is, it means that another computer on your network has the same IP address. You should just be able to restart your computer and have it go away.

    If it doesn't, then it means one of the computers on your network probably has a static IP address in your DHCP range. To fix that, you'd need to check the other devices on your network.

    And BTW it's safe to post that info online... those are private IPs and there's not too much that you can do with a MAC address.
