DHCP not working (Self-assigned IP)

Recommended Posts

First of all, it's impressive that Niresh Mavericks installed perfectly out of the box, while all other builds I've tried have given me kernel panic.


The only problem I have with the installation is that while my Wi-Fi hardware works and connects to the wireless network, it fails to actually get Internet access because it does not properly initialize the network via DHCP, and instead assigns a 169.x.x.x self-assigned IP. The Renew DHCP button doesn't fix the problem.


I first tried with a TP-Link TL-WN727N USB adapter, with the Mediatek driver and Ralink Wireless Utility. Once I actually got it to connect, but the connection was VERY slow and constantly timing out. At other times, I didn't even get that far, and the Wireless Utility, bizarrely, displayed RX Limit = 1Mpbs, which is way too low.


Now I did a clean reinstall with a newly bought TP-Link TL-WDN4800 PCI-E adapter (the system sees it out of the box as an Atheros40 Airport), but with no success. The installer sees Wi-Fi, displays a panel icon and prompts me to connect - and does connect to the network, but fails to get Internet access. The installed system suffers from the same problem, and network properties show the self-assigned IP.


Any ideas?


CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 (Haswell)

Motherboard: ASUS H81M (Intel H81 Express chipset)

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

Wi-Fi: TP-Link TL-WDN4800

I fixed it by switching the router from 802.11b/g/n to just 802.11g. It was just OS X having this problem, though, Windows and Linux worked without this change. Still, at least it works now.

Here are my specifications: Motherboard: H110M PRO-VH Processor: Intel Core i5 3,19 GHz GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 RAM: 16 GB So here's the problem: Whenever i boot with HDMI and VGA connected the monitor with VGA goes black and then it turns off.
