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.

    • @Niresh i forgot to say that that error was given because i have a Samsung M2 NVMe 960pro. I tried to remove it and it kinda worked but with a lot of bugs even during the installation. I can't remember everything clearly now cause it's been like 4 months ago
    • Thanks. I Have One Ethernet And One Wifi.

    • How many network adapters do you have? Like WiFi or Ethernet? Post output of lspci -nn command
    • Unfortunately i dont have any Option to disable my Grahpic Adapter. Can i disable it in an other way? Like any Boot Flags?   EDIT: I did just an Update for my BIOS but it didn't add any Options to disable my Graphics Adapter
    • This issue is called Discrete Graphics issue of High Sierra, To bypass this you have to disable either Intel HD Graphics 630 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 from BIOS, Check into your BIOS to see if you have any options to disable Graphics, Then try booting Keep me updated
