re: Netgear Problems with router/adapater

I am trying to share a wireless network at home. I have 2 computers - one is Pentium 4 2.2 gHz and the other is an athlon 500.

Regardless, I purchased a Netgear wireless router and a wireless PCI adapter card. I have installed the router and the card on the computer with the DSL modem and the satellite PC. However, I seem to be getting it an error message saying that "The system has detected a conflict for IP Address with the system having hardware address.....". (Although at this time I am not getting it. Knock on wood.)

This doesn't seem to prevent me from getting online, however it seems that the connection fades in and out even though the computers are about 20 feet apart with one wall between. Signal strength is fine - about 6 or 7 "Bars" out of 8.

Is there anyway that I can stop getting this IP address error? What should I do? I've tried calling Tech Support aka India but they don't seem to want to listen to me - telling me to do this do that. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
