    ip conflict everywhere!

    we just had it..before you say loopback, we traced the problem to specific laptop. All the machines with ip conflict were reporting 2 mac addresses (in event log) which turned out to be the internal lan and wireless card of a single laptop.

    no virus found by sophos but theres a report of one being found in googlevideo exe a few days ago. otherwise we're not sure why it happened. Prob gonna reimage laptop to be on the safe side.

    Sounds like either a driver bug or a physical problem with the network card(s) in the laptop. It sounds like it was spewing junk data onto the network. I'd guess ARP.

    Re: ip conflict everywhere!

    is it onboard wireless?

    if it's pcima, have you tested on another laptop?

    luckily we have a list of laptops mac addresses. I initially had the idea of narrowing down the mac because we have a fair number of different machines bought in batches so i surmised they'd have similar mac addresses.
