Airport extreme has been working fine for quite some time now and suddenly the wired connection has started failing.  Wireless still seems okay.   I have a DGS-1008G switch, i thought it was that, but i can't connect my MBP directly too it.  I have done a factory default reset twice (and it knows my name when it comes up and renames itself...creepy).  What else can i try?  My PC sometimes seemed to get the assigned IP, but the DNS would be missing.  Other times it would assign some weird  IP, seemingly beyond my LAN.


This is the third time in a little over a week the wired connected stopped working.


Any help is appreciated...wifi signal is week where my xbox is, so i prefer my wired.
