Whenever I switch on the modem I get


Windows - System Error


A duplicate name exists on the network

I only get it on the PC, not the laptop and the box can be closed

without problem, the PC then seems to recognise the modem ( Siemens

speedstream - wifi)

Should I be worried about it and if so why?

Can I stop it happening and if so how?

I hope some guru out there can help.

It sounds as if you have more than one device with the same name on your wifi network.  Is every piece of equipment you have called something unique, if not a bit of renaming (in Windows XP system properties - windows key & pause/break) should sort you out?
