IP addresses conflict in the address pool of a WLAN device

An IP address conflict occurs when two STAs on a LAN are allocated the same IP address. For example, a STA's IP address has been released using a Release packet or the reset ip pool command, or because the lease has expired for 3 days. However, the AC does not notify the STA that the IP address has been released. The AC then allocates this IP address to another STA. This STA pings the IP address and receives a reply, so it sends a Decline packet to the AC. The AC sets this IP address to conflicted state.
You can run the reset ip pool { interface pool-name | name ip-pool-name } { start-ip-address [ end-ip-address ] | conflict } command to release a conflicting IP address.
