Error message when you try to set an IP address on a network adapter
If you click Yes, you see the TCP/IP properties. There, you can change the IP address to something different for the currently displayed network adapter in Device Manager. If you click No, the IP address is assigned to the network adapter. Notice that if you click No, the selected network adapter in Device Manager and the ghosted network adapter have the same IP address. In most cases, this causes no problems, because the driver is disabled.
