Airport self assigned ip address
Allowing or not, DHCP no longer functioned. Samba support is poor at best. Approach the communities affected directly, not here! The PowerMac kept getting “bumped” by my iPod Touch even for no apparent reason until I set up reserved addresses for all my connected devices wired and wireless.

Michael Steeber I have twitter, little snitch, dropbox, growltunes, gmail, jumpcut, smcfancontrol, time machine, and iStat menus all running in my menu bar. Want to pay it forward? This means they have proven with consistent participation and solid troubleshooting their knowledge in the IT field. I’d then find the iPod Touch on its address even though neither were reserved at the time and the PowerMac wouldn’t find a new address or anything and it was the one that was hard-wired with Gigabit!
What ticks me most about Leopard other than its general instability on PPC machines compared to Tiger which was darn near rock solid and which has never been fully addressed and now never ever will be is that they took a perfectly functional firewall and made it DUMBER and full of bugs. Let me know which if any of those steps solves your issue. Now you need an IP address to actually get online. If I manually set the address, the connection would resume and work fine except that SAMBA wouldn’t work right AT ALL with my PC or Apple TV boxes running XBMC.
Try renewing the DHCP lease in the Networks Preferences. But come on, we all know how to get to SysPrefs. One that seems particularly vulnerable to odd problems is the system firewall. After the system boots, you may be prompted to allow incoming connections to numerous programs and services, so accept these for now you can always go to the Firewall settings and deny or remove entries later on and then try connecting to the network again.
It is NOT this easy.
