    Dear All,
    I have a macbook(5.1) late 2008 edition. Everything was fine until few days, this is when I had problems booting OSX(was running on Leopard). So I upgraded and made a clean install of Snow Leopard. After this I am not able to access the internet in my hostel via ethernet. When I connect my mac book in the lab everything works fine as I have no problem connecting to the internet both via ethernet and wireless network.
    I have to add that I can connect to internet in my hostel from booting on the windows from bootcamp but not on OSX. Tried changing the ethernet cable but did not help.
    I have the following settings: location-Automatic, IPv4 Using DHCP.
    Tried renewing DHCP lease but did not work. I suppose the IP address obtained automatically is not good. It gives out the IP as
    Can anybody shed some light in solving my problem.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try rebooting the router and your Mac. There's nothing wrong with the IP address being handed out by your router.
