The 169 address is a Self Assigned, reserved, IP by the OS. Both Windows and Mac, and just about every other OS, uses that same IP for NICs that are not conneced to a real network/LAN. Try another cable. If it does the same thing then it may be a problem with the network card or the Ethernet port on the computer.
