Help!!! I just turned on my powerbook that's been dormant for a few weeks, and attempted to connect to the internet via Airport. ISSUES! The airport network is detected, and can be joined, but no internet. Under network status, Airport is orange and says something like "Computer is connected to airport network, but has a self-assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet". After fiddling with pretty much every network preference i could find, it still displaed the same message and would not load any web pages. My G5 is connecting to the internet flawlessly, as well as another powerbook on the network. HOWEVER: I connected the problematic PB to the connected powerbook via ethernet. I then shared the airport internet connection through the ethernet cable to the problematic PB, to see if it was an issue other than what it was saying. Safari began to load a page, then stopped. I tried again, then disconnected the ethernet cable. Immediately after, I attempted to access the internet on the (previously) connected powerbook, only to find that it wouldnt, and was displaying the same message under network status: Self-Assigned IP Address. Is this some kind of virus? How do i fix it? Help is greatly appreciated. -klon This just in! The problem just afflicted my G5 without any hardwire connection. I reset the base station, and now I can connect. Phew. Will check PB's now... Phew. Looks like the base station just needed a good old resetting. However, I'm still curious as to why it all of a sudden got an assigned IP address and it came over each computer individually, and not all at once. Anybody?
