    So I received this message, not quite sure what it means. This is actually my first time getting this message. Not very tech savvy myself, anybody know if this message is saying? I crossed out my IP Address.

    Yeah it says that your computer is attempting to log onto a network with the same IP Address as another device. It happens from time to time, especially if something has a " static " IP address.

    no biggie .... just renew DHCP address in network preferences if u are setup as a DHCP client ... but it should resolve it self.

    btw if u are the only one on ur network (wifi) somebody u dont knw might be freeloading ;p

    Thanks, it might just be me. I have too many devices connected to the same network. Including myself and my family, we got several ipod touches, iphones, iPads and laptops going around sharing the network. >< I was just surprised cause I never seen this message before.
