Technical information about the update

What is an IP address conflict? When does it occur?

IP address conflict happens when two or more access points have the same IP address.
This error makes it impossible for devices to connect with the wireless network. If the IP address conflicts occur on the IPs assigned to a critical network endpoint, like a firewall or a router, the entire network can be blocked. A company/enterprise scenario could be expensive.

Multiple studies from the most influential digital data providers such as Gartner, Statista, and ITIC have shown how the costs for companies can catastrophically grow during sudden network downtime.

 

Data Providers Costs for 1-hour Network Downtime
Gartner $336000 / hour
Statista Between $301,000 and $400,000 / hour
ITIC $1 million / hour (based on answers of a survey conducted at enterprise-level)

What causes an IP address conflict?

The most common causes for IP address conflicts are:
– Static IP allocation;
– Set static or dynamic IP address allocation at the same time;
– BYOD policies;
– DHCP errors;
– Network problems caused by bad configurations;
– Device exhaustion.
– VPN – IP conflicts;
– Malware, WiFi ransomware and other malicious actions.

 

A practical example of IP address conflict

To help you to visualize the concept, let’s say that a network administrator is configuring two access points in the same network. The access points are two Intelbras AP1350AC and a Ubiquiti device.
Let’s assume that one of the two Intelbras AP1350AC device has an IP addressing equals to 192.168.1.10 and the Ubiquiti one – as default – 192.168.1.20.
IP address conflict is caused by the same IP addressing to 192.168.1.*

 

IP Address Conflict

IP address conflicts resolution

Updating to the Tanaza Installer 2.11.2, network administrators can detect new access points if there is an IP address conflict with other devices or network interfaces.

Let’s analyze the previous example.

The network administrator has added the Ubiquiti AP (IP addressing as default 192.168.1.20 – image above) to the LAN. Traditionally, devices cannot be detected due to the IP address conflict state. Both APs have the same IP addressing 192.168.1.*.

Tanaza bypasses this state by applying an IP address conflict resolution without technical fixing required.

Tanaza Installer 2.11.2 introduces new features to troubleshoot devices automatically.
Network administrators can execute AP crash fixing for devices never connected before to a LAN.
They need only to launch a simple network scan.

The Installer will find and fix the most common AP issues.
