MacBook Air :: Unable To Get IP Address From DHCP Server


I've recently purchased my first Mac (the new 13.3 inch air model). I seem to be having a bit of a problem with wireless networking, though. It seems that my Mac will reconnect to my wireless network perfectly after resuming from sleep mode just fine for a few days, but after those few days, it will mysteriously stop being able to get an IP address from the DHCP server (my wireless router). My PC is able to connect to the network just fine and always seems to be able to get a new address, but the Mac just loses the ability. I have found that the only way I can get the Mac to start grabbing an IP address from the router is by going into the router settings and changing the RIP mode to a value other than what it currently shows. I generally try to stay in RIP_2B mode, but I change it to some other random value whenever it stops connecting.

MacBook Air :: DHCP Not Getting IP Address Unless Kill Prefs?
I have a very odd issue with my MBA. Airport connects but I get no IP address. This happens connecting to Linksys, Airport Extreme, Express. I get a self-assigned IP 169.x.x.x which is useless. To get things working temporarily for a day or so I have been deleting these prefs./Users/scott/Library/Prefeences/com.apple.internetconnect.plist
/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist
/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist

I ran disk-util and I have no permission issues. This above works after a reboot but come the next Access Point or the next day I'm getting nothing but 169.x.x.x again.One more added piece of info. I have the USB ethernet adapter and that fails as well so its something to do with DHCP.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: DHCP Server Has No Log, Won't Issue Address To Some Devices?
I've got some DHCP Strangeness going on with 10.6 server. This started (or was discovered) while trying to get several of ATT's new Microcell devices working. These are basically base stations for cell phones. I've tried 3 and all 3 fail to get a DHCP lease on my network. However, they do get a lease on every other network I've tried (work, other house, etc).

I've tried different switch ports, different switches...I also tried using internet sharing on a MBP to bridge between the airport and the ethernet port. The only thing that happened was a bunch of sharing crash messages in the console. On the DHCP server, my logging is set to high, however the logs are empty. There is nothing in them.

OS X Tiger :: IP Address In Use By DHCP Server
I have been getting a message pop up on my screen that says:

###.###.#.# in use by 00:24:36:98:0f:e5, DHCP server ###.###.#.#

The #'s are actual numbers of an IP address, but what is that other number and what does this message mean?

Xserve :: Ethernet Is Not Able To Grab The IP Address From The DHCP Server?
I am recently facing a problem with DHCP setting on my X server.(the X server is totally brand new, it is just out of the box) my Ethernet is not able to grab the IP address from the DHCP server. The configuration at router side should be no problem, I have tested using my dell laptop with windows XP installed. The DHCP is working fine, I can grab the IP address...I am configured to static IP on it, the server is working and can surf the internet...

Mac Mini :: Server Refuses To Get DHCP Address From Router?
Everything was going along fine. But after a power outage the server goes to a 169.address when the router puts out 198. addresses. If I put a static 198. address in it sees the network but won't connect to the internet. I've flashed the router (everything else sees the router fine, 3 computers and a time capsule). I've had the hardware checked at the Apple store - it picked up an address right away. After narrowing everything down the problem has to be in the operating system. I even did a full time machine restore to the day before the storm.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Static Reservation Getting The Wrong IP Address - DHCP?
I have a machine that has a reservation in the list that is not getting the correct IP. In the logs and in the Clients list I see it show up as if it doesn't have a reservation. I tried entering it manually under the reservations and also selecting it from the client list and creating a reservation but it always get's the old address and will not get the reserved one. Any thoughts? or ways to purge it totally out of the system? I'm thinking something is hanging out in a config file somewhere.

OS X Server :: Unable To Use DHCP With Windows XP
I have a Mac OSX Server (10.4) connected to a switch with various Airport Express terminals around the place. Macs can connect to the network wirelessly (with 128 bit WEP) and WIRED totally fine... but when I try and connect a windows PC either using wireless or WIRED... an IP address isn't assigned. Windows just says "Limited or no connectivity"...

OS X Leopard :: How To Get A New DHCP Address
I work in television, and we travel to a new location each week. Our Network is run through NomadixAG3000, and, anyone with a PC doesnt seem to have any issues logging on to our network. There seems to be new Mac users every other week, and the problems are escalating... For some reason, Macs seem to hold a DHCP address, I don't need to Renew my DHCP lease, I need a NEW DHCP lease. I just found a new error message, telling me the address is in use. I can't seem to get the computer to search for a different address. When I log on in MY work area, it is to a wireless access point/router , with encryption, so there doesnt seem to be any competition for these addresses. I work closely with our IT guys, but not in IT, and while I am completely ignorant as to System Administration, as a Mac User out here, I'd like to know the hows and whys to the problem.

UPDATE: Every MAC, not just mine, seems to be trying to access the network to the SAME address, and once it's taken, we get an error message saying the 10.10.23.97 address is taken. I'm pretty sure the problem is with the Network System Admin settings. I log on without any issues on many other Nomadix based systems in hotels/coffeeshops, etc.

MacBook Air :: DHCP Stopped Working - No Automatic Network Connection
I have Macbook Air SSD running Leopard 10.5.2 (9C7010). Boot ROM version MBA11.00BB.B03. It would appear that in the middle of the day, DHCP just stopped working. It doesn't matter whether wireless or connecting via the USB ethernet adapter. If I want to get network connectivity, I have to manually assign the right IP address, router address, subnet mask and DNS addresses. While I was traveling from UK to India this weekend, DHCP just stopped working - default "Automatic" network location. It worked at home, it worked from the BA airport lounge. When I arrived at hotel in India, I could not connect. Network Prefs reported a locally assigned IP address.

I contacted their IT dept and got static IP address, router address, DNS addresses, and then everything was fine again. In the office in India, no joy again with DHCP and it reported locally assigned IP address. Again, when I got static IP/router/DNS from our IT helpdesk, everything was fine. Now I returned home, and it's just the same. DHCP not working, but if I assign a static IP address on my own home 10.x.x.x subnet and manually tell it the gateway address and DNS servers, everything is fine again. I have rebooted quite a few times. I didn't install any new software or change any settings - it seems to have simply stopped working on the plane between UK and India!

OS X Leopard :: DHCP Assigning Wrong IP Address?
We have recently started to have problems on our home networks. I take my MacBook Pro back and forth between two houses both of which have routers about 3 months old.

My MBP is set to use DHCP on the built-in AirPort to assign an IP address but it assigns an address like 169.254.111.112 when it should be assigning a number like 192.168.1.106. If I click "Renew DHCP Lease" a few times it usually gets a correct IP address.

The weird thing is that when it has the wrong IP address it can still access the internet. Sites like eBay load but I can not sign in. Nationalcity.com does not load at all and amazon.com is the same as eBay.

If I try to open limewire, transmission, Apple Remote Desktop, Yahoo widgets, and almost every other application that needs to use the internet. The iTunes store works just fine but I think that's because it uses port 8080.

My problem is in the third paragarph. How do I get my MBP to obtain the correct IP address. I can't use "Using DHCP with manual address" beacuse I take it back and forth between two houses and routers. And that doesn't fix it anyways.

EDIT:
When the computer gets the IP address 169.245.111.112 the AirPort status reads "Self-assigned IP"
When the computer gets the IP address 192.168.1.106 the AirPort status reads "Connected"
I don't know what this means but it looks important.

OS X Leopard :: DHCP Keeps Giving Wrong IP Address?
I keep getting the IPv4 address 169.254.40.129 when it should be 192.something (I cannot remember the full IP address). The status for my AirPort says that it has the self-assigned IP and will not be able to connect to the internet? It also says that my Ethernet is not connected and that the cable is unplugged when clearly it's working on every other computer in my home. I have tried restarting my router, putting in the IP address manually, restarting my computer, turning off the AirPort, etc. And my MacBook is still saying that I am not connected to the internet.

Snow Leopard :: Switch From DHCP And Static IP Address Automatically?
At work I have to connect using a static IP address. At home and pretty much everywhere else I use DHCP. I have setup different locations in the network control panel and switch manually every time I connect at the office or somewhere else. My iPhone on the other hand switches settings automatically because the settings are tied to the network you are connecting to. Is it possible to have my Mac switch from DHCP to static IP automatically based on the network found?

OS X Leopard :: IMac Will Not Stay Connected To The Internet / Can't Get An IP Address Via DHCP?
Yesterday I attempted to get an Airport Express working again. When I had a setup with an Airport base station connected to the cable it worked. With the Verizon FIOS router there, it is intermittent at best.

Now, my iMac will not stay connected to the Internet. It will connect wirelessly to the router. However, it can't get an IP address via DHCP, so it self-assigns one which doesn't work. If I go into the Network Preferences app I can create a new 'location' and this will work (gets an IP address via DHCP). If the iMac then goes through a sleep/wake cycle, it will have lost the DHCP assigned IP address and reverted to a self-assigned one which the router will reject.

Hardware :: Airport DHCP Fails To Get Address (Mac On Windows Network)?
I am a comitted Mac switcher trying to put my lovely new MacBook onto the office Windows network. I can connect to the office wireless network (WEP key etc) and the little radar Icon in the menu bar lights up. However, I cannot get the MacBook to obtain an IP address via DHCP. I just keep getting the default self assigned address (169.....).

However, when I connect to the network via a cable using the built in ethernet connector, I get the DHCP address just fine and everything works OK.Also, if I assign an IP address manually to the wireless card (checking it is a free address!) it accepts the settings but I cannot network, not even a basic ping of another machine on the local internal network (all our internal machines are using 10.0.0.x addresses and 255.255.255.0 sub net)The DHCP server is not in the wirless router but is a Windows server machine.This is driving me crazy. I have called Apple care and they just dont want to know because there is a Windows machine in the mix. I expected better from them,

OS X Server :: DHCP Grab My New Addresses
The service shows running but will not give an IP address to Mac or PC. As the leases are running out on the machines they are not being renewed. I restarted the service and then the server. Then I reset the DHCP Client list.I turned on a computer lab so that they would all grab a new address.... none of them did. I logged on to a computer and told it to renew its DHCP address and nadda. If i assign a static ip they are fine

Lion Server NAT Destroying DHCP
I have recently purchased a USB Ethernet adapter so I can setup NAT on lion server that runs on a MacBook. I was shocked when it blew away my DHCP Config after I set up NAT, but I stuck with the scope it chose and added the correct DNS and gateway settings.Whenever I start DHCP now, the logs tell me the Config cannot be found, and it blows away all of my modifications to DHCP. On top of that, it won't hand out any addresses.If I stop DHCP, the system logs start telling me that "natpmpd" has started, and then it begins to hand out addresses. The problem with this is, I can't make any changes to the DHCP settings it uses, which means my clients are now getting the incorrect settings for the gateway and DNS.Also, when I modify the Scope with DHCP stopped, the logs tell me it cant update the subnet because it was not found.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Get DHCP To Update DNS?
I have setup OS X Lion server to act as the DHCP and DNS server for my local network. DHCP provides gateway address and the local DNS server address.   DNS is set to forward to my ISP DNS servers. 'A' records and 'PTR' records have been created for the various servers on the network and I am able to resolve the servers via dig by name and address. I can also access the internet without issue. DHCP is handing out IP addresses to Windows clients on the network but I am unable to locate the machines with DHCP addresses in DNS either by IP address or FQDN. The windows clients are able to access the internet without issue. Looking at the DNS log there does not appear to be anything recorded when the DHCP address is allocated. Is there something special that needs to be setup either in DHCP or DNS that will allow DHCP to record the host and address details in DNS?

OS X Leopard :: Mac DHCP Reservation Not Working With Windows Server
I have a client who has a MacPro running Mac OS X 10.5.8 and the problem is that the Mac should get a fixed IP address from the companies Windows/DHCP Server which has the Mac's Ethernet ID reserved in the DHCP table. The problem is not existent on any other Mac's that should be getting a fixed IP so I am guessing that the problem is with this particular Mac and not the Windows Server.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: DHCP - Using VPN - PPTP
I have a quite confusing behavior. The dhcp server is setup to answer DHCP requests for PPTP-based VPN. The server's virtual interface for VPN is 172.20.5.125/24. The clients will receive the DHCP offer fine and all clients (Windows, *ix) except Macs work fine. On the Mac, the subnet mask is wrong.

e.g.
Tue Nov 9 12:31:29 2010 : pptp_wait_input: Address added. previous interface setting (name: en0, address: 192.168.81.76), current interface setting (name: ppp0, family: PPP, address: 172.20.5.123, subnet: 255.255.0.0, destination: 172.20.5.125).

Why is the Mac using subnet mask for a Class B network when the DHCP is providing the correct subnet mask and I am actually using CIDR? Any way to change this behavior or supplying the correct subnet mask?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Setup DHCP Without Double-NAT

All computers are connected to the school network and receive IP addresses from a windows 2003 dhcp server. Due to my school's support personnel knowing little if anything about anything other than windows we've had on-again off-again networking issues in my room. If I controlled the windows dhcp server I could set the options needed to fix this, but that's not an option. So...

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Changing NAT IP And DHCP Practices?
Office currently has a Firewall hardware device that's and it's using a certain internal IP range from it's NAT. We're looking at a newer Firewall appliance box and it serves a different set/range of IP's out from it's NAT. What's involved in changing/updating an existing OS X Snow Leopard to use this new internal IP behind the NAT without causing issues with the setup?

Second part... since the Firewall appliance box can also dish out DHCP - when is it better to have the OS X Snow Leopard server handle the DCHP for the internal network?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Multiple DHCP Records For Statically Assigned IP
I am running a Mac Mini Server with Snow Leopard 10.6.3. It provides DHCP, DNS and a few other services on our network, but we use a prosumer router/gateway to do NAT for us, rather than the server. I have several computers on my network which I set up with static maps in the DHCP service. One of these is my laptop, as I like to be able to find it wherever I am with the same IP. I recently had to replace the gateway on my network and around this time I began experiencing problems with the network. My first thought was that it was a problem with the replacement router/gateway. However, my laptop was the only one experiencing problems.

Through lots of trial and error, i found out that if I restart the DHCP server, my laptop's network connection begins to function again. After a while - half an hour or so - I lose my connection again. When this happens, I can ping the gateway, but nothing else on my network - including the server - or outside our network. I decided to try deleting the static map for my laptop. I deleted the map, it asked to restart the service. i did so, and the map came back. I tried several times to change the map or delete, but no success. I checked the logs, and found this error:
servermgr_dhcp:bootp config:Error:Unable to update/remove record with id /id removed/ because 3 records found.

OS X Leopard :: Won't Get Address From DHCP / Can't Work With Settings
I first has this problem at work if I tried to use public wifi (running on Cisco HW, as they're actually maintained by our company) but now I have had the same problem at home with my Time Capsule. At our office this problem seems to occur only with my and my workmates MBPs, all PCs connect fine.

I can connect to wireless networks, but what happens is that I can't get any IP address from the DHCP server. I only get the mDNS IP. Usually only solution that fixes this is to reboot my MBP and after that everything works fine. Renewing IP address from System Prefs does not help.

Is there any other way of trying to reset any settings without rebooting the system every time? I've tried different things (basic *nix networking stuff), but I'm not too familiar with the networking on OS X.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mac Utility To Generate DHCP Option Code Fields
Ever since Mac OS X Server was introduced, Apple have included a DHCP Server. This was and still is based on the open-source bootpd server. While the original open-source bootpd server has the capability to define additional fields of information (via DHCP option fields) that can be provided via DHCP to clients, the version included with Mac OS X 10.4.11 Server and earlier did not support this. After several years of my and presumably others submitting requests for this feature, this was finally added to Mac OS X 10.5 Server. The overwhelming majority of router based DHCP servers do not have the ability to define DHCP option fields.

This is a facility Microsoft have provided since at least Windows 2000 Server. Probably the most common scenario that you would come across that needs DHCP option fields, is the use of a VoIP (Voice over IP) phone system. It was my experience that small to medium enterprises were earlier to adopt this type of phone system than big enterprises, and these smaller organizations are also more likely to use Macs and Mac servers - just like the company I run the IT for in fact. So, Apple finally introducing the ability to define DHCP option fields in Mac OS X 10.5 Server was good news.

Unfortunately, Apple did not and still does not even in Mac OS X 10.6 Server, provide a user friendly method for defining these values which are stored as Base64 encoded data values in the /etc/bootpd.plist configuration file. The method of generating and encoding values has now been sufficiently deciphered that I am now able to create and provide a simple utility with a graphical user interface that mere mortals can use to generate any required DHCP option field. Hint - 192.168.1.1 would not be directly converted to Base64 it first has to be converted to a Byte value. Further details and a download link to this free utility can be found at DHCP Option Code Utility No Apple Code was harmed during the production of this utility.

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Remove An Email Address From Address Book
A friend has changed his email address. I have changed it in my address book.However when I compose a new mail and start to type the name of my friend, the OLD email address appears in a drop down list as much as the NEW address. How can I make it so that the OLD address wont show anymore? Sillylie enough the old address is listed first so I always end up sending mail to the wrong address.The old address is not in any part of my address book.Where is MAIL getting the address from and can I stop it showing the old address?

Information:
MacBook Pro CoreDuo 15" plus 20 other Macs and many PCs
Mac OS X (10.5.6)
I also have a Timecapsule and a Playstation3, oh yes.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: There Is No Server Available At The Address You Entered - Codes: 25294, 9848
About a month ago I rebooted the server and after that Server Admin hasn't worked. It says always: "There is no Server available at the address you entered".

What else I could try? The server is currently running email and web services among other things with many users, so therefore I can't try too rough methods.

Information:
Mac OS X (10.5.7)

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Create Account On Address Book Server
I'm having issues being able to create one specific account on the Address Book server. I have a 10.6.2 server running Open Directory and Address Book server. All accounts are on the Open Directory. On my client Mac, I open address book and can create (by adding account in Preferences) an account on the server with the exception of this one account. Like the others I select "CardDAV", enter the account name and password and the server address (just the name itself, not port etc since it is all set default and worked for the others). It then fails and gives me the following error:

'Address Book couldn't discover the account settings for the CardDAV server "<server URL>". Make sure the user name and server address are correct, then click Create.'

I've logged on and off with the credentials constantly and I even copied/ pasted the server URL just to be sure. It still fails!

Mac Pro
Mac OS X (10.6.2)
8GB RAM, 2TB HDD

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Connect To Address Book Server?
Users are unable to add accounts to their address books and get the error message:
Address Book couldn't discover the account settings for the CardDAV server "XY". Make sure the user name and server address are correct, then click Create.However, everything works perfectly fine when i'm adding the same account on the server directly, everything works perfectly fine. In this case, it works with all possible server addresses (localhost, ip, and our dyndns address). however, none of these addresses works from the clients.
