Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1100T Processor, 3300 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) / *gigs of ram
Me and my friend hucked up a net wort from our houses (bout 50 feet away) he is brodcasting wirelessly, and my desktop is not wireless so i used a laptop to conect to his and conected a hard line to my router and conected it to my pc and bridged the conections.

my router starting ip was fixed to 192.168.2.1 and his is set to 192.168.1.1 so itll conect and i turned off my dhcp ip (his is on). my wireless on the router is off.
It worked and i have acess to the network and the internet but every once in a wile i get DCed with a windows error saying my ip for my pc is the same as another computer on the network

Is there a way to fix this?
did I hook them up right cuse I am not that good a networking

from what you describe your setup is as follows:

friend wireless [192.168.1.x]<>I[192.168.1.x] Bridged laptop [192.168.1.x]<>[192.168.1.2] router [102.168.2.1]<>pc [192.168.2.x]

I am assuming you have your routers wan port connected to the laptop?

What machine are you getting the ipconflict message? I suspect the laptop but confirm please.

what else is connected to your router besides the desktop?
post the results of a ipconfig /all from the desktop.

conflict on the laptop is most likely due to your friends routers dhcp scope includes the laptop and router ips which it should not.
