IP address being used by someone else .... What do I do?

Today I received a message on my desktop that someone else was using my IP address.... just before that happened I was using the internet on my phone which has a different provider and the background ono chrome turned red... i haven't seen this before but I am assuming it was a warning of the same kind..... A couple of times a few days ago I couldn't get into a some of my accounts because the passwords wouldn't work.... I have run anti virus through both pc and phone but they have come up with no problems..... What action should I take and is it safe to do online banking?    Please keep it simple as I am not tech minded.... thanks..

Nothing to do with security. 2 of your devices on our neteork have the same IP address. it can happen.

restart your router and then all your devices and it would sort it self out

Thank you... My son said the same thing so I turned all devices off and re set the router.... hopefully that will be the end of it 🤔
