    Just as the title says, I can't get the ip addresses, etc., in OS X, nor can I get into the router's internal settings with OS X but I can do both with XP running on the same iMac.

    Everything had been working fine, then a few days ago the internet would stop working and we'd get it back up after a modem reset, but now that's not working either. I have a new modem on the way but afraid that it's a software issue/bug. Not sure why I'd get perfect wireless in XP but not in OS X if it was the modem. :eek:

    I've deleted the four files from Library/Preferences/SystemConfigurator to get rid of the "settings are being run by another program" issue, now just can't get online at all. When I check and renew DHCP, I get addresses like

    Any thoughts? Ideas? (shotgun is not an option for now)

    no dice...

    I appreciate the response but even when I type in a manual ip address-- or all my information manually-- it still isn't working. for some reason I think the computer is recognizing the SSID but nothing else, as my SSID is showing up in the wireless signals list but I can't even log into the router using a web browser, unless I'm in XP. URG!
