If you use an IP that is assigned to another active machine on a network, all sorts of strange things can happen (not being able to connect at all, randomly getting dropped offline, etc.)

If you just mean that you obtained a new IP from your ISP, don't worry- they take care of making sure you get a unique IP.

If you are using DHCP, why are you changing/setting the IP manually? That pretty much defeats the purpose of DHCP, no?
