Hi Emmanuell,

This error generally occurs when more then once device use same IP address, this can be caused by a temporary glitch.

  • Turn your router off and turn back on - this should correct itself.


If not then we need to manually remove the IP address in the command prompt.

  • Click Start and type cmd, right click cmd and choose run as administrator. 

In the black command prompt window, type the following commands 

ipconfig /release

press Enter and let it run through

THEN

ipconfig /renew

press Enter and let it run through.

The issue has now been resolved, please test your connection now.
