Why does my pc tell me that my ipad has the same IP address

Specs: Windows 7
I am trying to move files from my pc to my ipad but am told that the ipad is not connected, even though I can see its contents on my pc. After connecting the ipad to my pc a pop-up tells me that the pc has the same IP address as the ipad. Is that really bad & the reason for not transferring the files, please?

Yes; a duplicated IP address would explain why you cannot transfer files. Presumably both your devices obtain their IP address dynamically (you might want to check that this is the case for your computer), so this really shouldn't happen. Try powering the computer off and on again. Then turn the networking off and on again for the iPad. That should force both of them to obtain new IP addresses.

thank you, ijack, this didn't solve the problem, but a 3rd party free program made the file transfer possible. Thank you again for trying to solve an unsolvable problem - that's apple for you!
