My Apple TV will only connect to my Time Capsule wirelessly. I have tried a wired connection, and nothing. My friend has a AEBS and we have the EXACT same settings on his AEBS as my TC and his works just fine. Mine pulls a 169.XXX.XXX.XXX IP address instead of the 192 it should be pulling. Here is my set up. Embarq is the DSL Modem Set to Port Forwarding to the TC. TC set into bridge mode (to avoid the dual NAT so "back to my mac" will work) TC plugged into CAT5 that runs to the Living Room Apple TV Connected to Wall outlet of the CAT5 The only other problem I can think of is bad cables, but I plugged my MacBook Unibody into to same LR port with the same cables I use for the AppleTV and it pulled a 192 IP and connected just fine. So I took the AppleTV in to the Apple Store and the genius hooked it up there to run diagnostics, "Everything appears to be working, let's see if it will connect to our network." Sure enough, boom. Connected just fine. He gave me some BS about resetting firmware or some crap like that, and said it should be fine now. So I get it back home and guess what. NOTHING. No connection on the wired connection......same cables I used for the MacBook. What is wrong? Why is it that me and my buddy's settings are exactly the same, but mine won't connect? Why will my MacBook pull a 192 IP address but the ATV won't? I know somebody out there has an answer for me. Please help!!!
