It is smthing to be done in layer 2. So you need to have a swtich on your
network that can prevent mac-id changes.

But as i read now.. you say you got messages of ip conflict.
It seems like some of your clients  has static ips.. or even after your
coova releases the ip that client keeps on having the old ip address.

When such thing happens ask your user to tell you the mac-id of the
conflicting computer.(which can be found on systemlog of windows) and
examine the computer with that mac-id
