    I've had my MBP since Saturday. Wireless worked was working as soon as I started it up. Yesterday I decided to plug the computer into the router to make sure my ether net card worked. It could not connect wired, could not get IP. <begin mistake>I messed around with some settings to see if I could get it to work but no dice. <end mistake> I unplugged it then went back to wireless and it is doing the same thing now: it connects to the router but does not obtain an IP address. I have a WRT54G router, I have powered up/down everything and reset the router's security.

    Thanks

    Did you mess with the router's settings or with the MacBook Pro's settings? :)

    Did you mess with DHCP? Instead of messing with the Ethernet card you messed with the wireless card?

    I messed with the MacBook Pro's settings.

    I have since done a complete reinstall of OSX. Still same problem, connects but not able to get IP. Leads me to believe that this router hates Macs.

    I have tried everything...turned everything off and back on in every imaginable order, checked firmware, i have a call into a witch doctor right now but I don't think that is going to pan out...


    Any ideas?

    BTW, I know the ethernet and AirPort cards are working...wireless at school and works connected straight to cable modem.
