    Default Local Hostname - Network Error

    Hi all, I've got a problem which only started recently.

    My Mac keeps thinking that there is a mac on the network which has the same name of it (just to clarify - there are no other computers named similarly)

    I think it's picking up an old version of itself, and what it's saying changes.

    Heres a screenshot of it:

    Please help, thanks.

    It probably isn't your Mac, it's probably your router causing it. Try power cycling your router and see if it stops.
