    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?

    Hi,

    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.
