Answers :

Its sure an IP conflict is there and i hope you don't have a router - a modem is there so that when you connect to the internet, computers will get ip address from your service provider and not from your device which is not having that function because of no router. Kindly check in your network properties that you have specified any manual IP address delete it and keep the option obtain Ip address automatically. Before all this you have to go to the my computer right click and select properties then hardware ->devicemanager ->networkadapters - under that you uninstall all the adapters and restart your pc
