    I just bought myself a macbook pro, and I'm new to the mac world so I might seem like a noob to you guys. ;)

    Before, I had a pc, which was connected to a router with another pc in order to be connected to the www.

    But now that I connect my mac and a pc to the router, an IP conflict occurs and none, sometimes just one can be connected to the web.

    It's an old-school router with cables (simple stuf).

    How do I solve this problem, so both mac and pc can be online?

    It sounds like your router is not set to assign ip addresses by DHCP. Check that and set it. Then set all your computers to capture an ip address by DHCP and that should solve the problem.

    The problem has been solved now.

    I'm not sure how though, since I just plugged in my mac and it worked like it is suppose to.

    Now both the mac and the pc are online. Happy-happy joy-joy.
