Hi Jack,

I am trying to get you more info but this is what I have so far:
Quote:
169.254.x.x: This is what's called an Automatic Private IP address. An IP in this range means that the computer cannot see the network. A computer using DHCP needs to have an external server tell it what IP address to use. Unfortunately, if there's no network connectivity, the computer is unable to talk to the server. In those cases, the computer will actually give itself an IP starting with 169.254, since it must assign itself some sort of number.
Update: Jack, the developers let me know the APIPA does not get listed by the commands.
