Everytime i plug my network cable into my macbook pro i am getting assigned this ip address and a subnet mask of


No router ip, no dns server.


however when i plug another notebook in, it works perfectly fine!


The ip: isn't even on my range, as the network is a 192.168.x.x so i dont know where this 169.254.x.x is coming from?


Further inspection shows this "*.local, 169.254/16" written in the bypass proxy section of the network setup, but thats the same as wifi and wifi works? (sometimes!)


Would reallly appreciate some help



MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Macbook pro, and iphone 4 affected
