    Control Panel - 'click' Network & Internet - then 'click' view Network Status & Tasks - The 'click' Trouble Shoot Problems.

    You can also read more information using Help and Support on your PC.

    It might be an idea to call your Internet Service Provider regarding your connection


    For someone to have the same IP address well this should not happen.

    You're using the same router.

    If the other people aren't supposed to be using your router, you'll need to access your router through its maintenance interface and kick them off.

    I have a 2wire router from AT&T. Its maintenance pages are accessed through

    gateway DOT 2wire DOT net

    It means you are going thru the same connection.
