I am trying to connect a new Macbook Pro to the Wifi in my home. My girlfriend has an identical Macbook Pro that is already connected and working fine however I am having problems.
On my girlfriends laptop the network settings are:
Whereas on mine the network settings are:
Both are on 'Using DHCP'. Occasionally the troublesome laptop connects to the correct router IP and all is fine but it reverts back to the wrong IP whenever it awakes from sleep.
The 192.168.0.1 IP is being used by a Powerline adaptor at the other end of our house which provides internet where the router cant reach. Even when connected to the router network (and out of range of the Powerline) the Macbook seems to have the Powerline IP whereas on the laptop that is working, the IP is always set for the Router whether it is connected to the Powerline or not...
Any help would be appreciated.

Im not familiar with the powerline adapters but can you configure it so that it bridges the network rather than NATing it?I find the best way to locate rogue DHCP servers is to send 240V down the appropriate port. Follow the smoke.
