My Mac OS X system is mostly getting the wrong ip address from any router. It gets an IP address starting with 169.254.59.233, when it should be getting a good, old 192.168.1.5 or something.
Does anyone know what could be the cause? I've got the feeling it happens after the laptop goes into stand-by mode.
I also see this message: "Airport has a self assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet."
I've read people think it's because the router isn't handing out ip addresses, but it works just fine on any Linux or Windows laptop.
