conflicting IP addresses on network



My daughters laptop (DEll Inspirion 1150 running XP Home) was working on our
wireless home network. On a weekend trip, she needed to access the internet
via AOL dialup. She was never able to do so, getting a message that the
Windows was not configured to access AOL. I tried to establish a new
internet connection but got an error message that the consection manager was
disabled. I went into services and tried to activate the conection manager
but got a message that a compnent was not available.

On returning home, her laptop no longer can access the wireless network. We
get a message that her IP address conflicts with another machine on the
network. When I try to use "repair this connection" the network then knocks
everyone else off until I reboot the router and modem.
