I have a home-built computer running
Win ows XP (Service Pack 3) with all the updates installed. My ISP provides a USB ADSL modem for accessing my broadband internet connection. [ use an Ethernet connection to a wireless router to enable me to connect my laptop in the house. The Ethernet card and the wireless router have the same original IP address, 192.168.0.1. I set the Ethernet card's address to 192.168.0.24 and all works well. After some time the address is reset to the original figure and the connection stops working, with a warning that two items have the same address and are in conflict.
