    New to mac and having a bit of trouble logging on to a home wireless network. Had no problem with mine at home but housitting for some friends and can't seem to get it to work. The airport finds the signal but then after a few moments I get the IP config error message which says: in use by 00:12:25:54:d9:a9, DHCP Server

    It is somehow trying to use the IP address of the printer logged to the network. Is there any way to 'reset' the IP address? I can't seem to get it; it is diffferent enough from a PC that I am not sure what to change.

    When I go into System Prefences> Network> It says that the Airport is not connected to the internet because it cannot find an IP address.

    Thank you.
    (from the middle of the street, the only place that gets a connection in this neghborhood.)
