Anyway I managed to call the wifi guy and he said he could see there was a problem but couldn't fix it remotely so he'll send someone tomorrow . If it says something else, you may want to create a new location (under edit locations), which will get you setup with default configurations.Thanks anyway :) at the top of the window there’s a drop down box. It’s possible something got hosed at some point.sounds like what you're describing is but your computer cannot connect to internet. You are getting this address because it is AHIPAA address it's probably 169something.
Cause of the Problem: 1) System Update 2) Major Configuration changes made by users 3) System restore *4) Switched off System by holding power key When people perform major configuration changes to their systems, sometimes the settings may not migrate properly.
One that seems particularly vulnerable to odd problems is the system firewall.
For Resetting Wifi Configurations: step-1) Go to Desktop and press command shift G step-2) Go to the /Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences/System Configuration/ folder step-3) Backup and remove following files: com.apple.airport.preferences.plist com.message-tracer.plist Network Interfaces.plist preferences.plist step-4) Restart your computer.
Everything appears to be working fine except for one thing, my Apple Macbook Pro, running 10.5.8 is getting a self-assigned IP address when I connect it to my Fi OS wireless router (Action Tec MI424-WR).
The Mac has a physical connection to the wireless router.
The "My Network" tab in the wireless router configuration screen shows it as connected, with an assigned IP address of 192.168.1.6.
Don't worry about it so much just means you're having connectivity issues. Restart your Mac Book Also is this the only device in the house that is having trouble connecting to the network?
If it isn't then we know its the network and not just the Mac Book When the Mac Book has restarted and you see it trying to connect to the network make it forget the network and try to reconnect to the desired Network.
Luckily the fix is a relatively easy one; all you have to do is remove the firewall’s preferences and then reboot the system.
To reset the firewall, step-1) Go to Desktop and press command shift G step-2) Go to the /Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences/ folder step-3) Remove the file called “com.plist” step-4) Restart your computer.
