    Hello all!

    I have a MacBook 13,4" (late'08). It's so amazing! But I have a problem:

    When I connect the MacBook to a router with a cable, it doesn't get an IP from the DHCP-server. When I set the correct IP manually, it doesn't work either. The connection seems to be up, but when I try to ping the router, it says:
    Code:
    macbook-van-guido:~ Guido$ ping 192.168.1.1
    PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1): 56 data bytes
    ping: sendto: Host is down
    ping: sendto: Host is down
    ping: sendto: Host is down
    ping: sendto: Host is down
    ^C
    --- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics ---
    4 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss
    When I connect using Airport, it works fine.

    The router is OK, when I connect from another (non-mac) laptop using LAN, it works fine. I allready tried another router, other cables... But with no success.

    I Googled for hours and still can't find the solution. Could someone help me please?

    Thanks so much!! :D

    Try turning on and off the router while plugged in the mac?
