- Ethernet: the self-assigned 169.x.x.x ip.

The router that's distributing the IP adresses works, I see them going out, and the PC's on the network work fine with DHCP:

Code:

But the macbook doesn't do anything with it.

I've already tried rebooting the machine, didn't help.

Any hints?

Thanks.
Have you recently hooked up more computers than normal to your network? Some routers will be set to only supply a handful of addresses at a time. If they run out of addresses, any computer requesting a new address will not get one and therefore assign an address in the APIPA range (169.254.0.0).

Check your router's DHCP client lease length and the number of addresses in the pool. If the lease length is long (more than a day), it will not reassign a leased address until after the lease expires.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
