When you have a duplicate IP address on the network, the stations involved will not receive the information they would expect to receive. Depending on the sender, they might receive partial traffic or they might not receive any traffic at all.
If you have statically addressed devices on the network, you have to be very careful not to duplicate any IP addresses that might already be in use on the network. The more static addresses you use, the more you need to be concerned about this, and the best way to deal with this is to manage the allocated IP . . .
