Have been using a DLink switch/wireless access point for several years. Using Verizon as my broadband provider. Tried to swap a new AirPort Extreme in place of the Dlink unit. I can get the wireless network part working. I can not get AirPort Extreme to connect to the internet. It comes up with a 169.xxx.xxx.xxx address and the status light is flashing yellow. I have tried disconnecting and powering down for various amounts of time and in various orders - the modem, the AirPort and the PC that I have connected via Ethernet for doing configuration. When I gave up and put the DLink back in place it connected to the internet and my wireless is back.

Dell, Windows XP
