It worked fine for one day. The next day, without having changed any settings, I can no longer connect to the network or get out to the internet. Now I get stuck with the self assigned IP address and the yellow dot next to the connection. I've moved it to other open CAT5 cables in the office with the same results.
Is there maybe something simple I should try before contacting the network admin?I'm not a Mac. I'm not a PC. I'm a person.

Go to preferences > network > advanced > renew dhcp lease. If this is not giving you a valid ip address you will have to contact the network folks and see what the deal is.
