Duplicate IP Addresses?

Hi

 

Since moving to the Smart Hub from the home hub 5 i've started to get errors on my iMac. The error says that "another device on teh network is using your computers IP Address"

 

I've checked in the Hub Manager and i do see two devices using the same IP Address, one being my iMac, another being an Apple TV. Both have DHCP next to them. I've never had this problem with the Home Hub 5 and nothing has changed on the iMac or AppleTV - the only change was swapping out the hubs.

 

I've temporily solved this by using wifi on my iMac but cannot understand why the hub will allocate two devices the same IP Address when using DHCP. Please help????

 

The second issue i have is when opening webpages in Chrome or Safari i get a pause before teh page loads. It seems that it takes a while to find teh page. Coudl this all be linked to DHCP problems?

 

Thanks for any help

 

Jon
