ip configuration problem maybe?

Specs: Windows XP
I've recently tried to port forward on my computer and it was a little over my head, but I foolishly pushed forward hoping I'd just get lucky with clicking.
I don't know for certain that this is the cause to my problem, but it'd be a pretty big coincedence otherwise.
We use a wireless Dynex router, 3 computers are connected via cables and I believe one wirelessly.
On my computer I get the "A network cable has been unplugged" fairly often when it has not. My dad(one of the other cable connected) said he got a notification saying there was an ip conflict and I'm not sure about the other two. But it's causing our internet to not connect us to sites most of the time, even when it says it's connected in the network.

Any ideas?

It sounds as if you have set static IP addresses on at least two of the computers (yours and your dad's), using the same address. Just set them back to automatic addresses (DHCP) and they will get differenet, individual addresses.
