I recently bought MacBook Air 13'' (Late 2010) and Apple USB Ethernet Adapter but wasn't able to get ethernet network working. I have tried two different routers but it always shows "USB Ethernet has a self-assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the Internet". Device is recognized, cable is connected (status: connected) but IP is not assigned (even thou it is set to automatic DHCP). Tried renewing IP but no luck - the same issue. Needles to say that ethernet works fine with Windows PC.

The same router perfectly assigns IP if connecting via WiFi.

Any help would be appreciated.
