    Today I lost internet connection (as always), eventually re-connected and it said "A device on your network is using the same IP address" or something like that. This has happened a few times before.

    I went into the router settings and I can see my macbook pro showing up twice with different MAC addresses and internal IPs. Nobody else's computers are showing up twice.

    What's the problem?

    Far from here

    did you try this :

    - turn off the Mac
    - turn off the router

    - turn on the router
    - turn on the mac ?

    (= "power cycle")

    Just done that and I can only see it once now. Good, I was getting worried there.
