It means another computer on your network tried to use the same IP as you. Generally this fixes itself. If it becomes a problem, you can assign static IPs.

Well, every computer on the network must have a unique IP address. Like I said, it usually fixes itself. One of the two computers will generally get disconnected and have to request a new IP address from the DHCP server.

Yeah, sometimes my brothers lappy says that, but it usually fixes it self after it reconnects. Try restarting your computer though. It should fix it
