LAN problem after ip conflict

By rocketdylon50 ·
Ok so we just got a new computer and it was named and setup with out me. Being there. Therefore i thought it named the same thing as a older computer. This resulting in a error on the xp machine (the older one) saying that this machine has the same ip as another device on the network i thought this would be the new computer, It wasn't.i tried to rename the computer just incase it just freezes, altho i can change the ip and it dont make a diffrence I have cheeded everything on my network nothing is the same. And because of this all 3 of my computers wont work LAN they connect but wont get internet. But the wireless works fine. When i log in to the router it says internet is good when i cheek my internet coming in (fronter router) it is full conection. I cant figure it out. I have a Netgear N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (WNDR4500)

So the new computer has what OS installed?

Assuming that it's some form of Windows and that it is actually a New Computer and not a computer new to you it would have Windows 7 on it and this uses a different networking Protocol to the XP versions.

Run the Network Setup Wizard on the 7 System and then make the network setup whatever it has and remember to write down the Key that the system generates.

Then go to every other system on your network and run the Win 7 Homegroup Setup.
