I am using a MacBook Pro and all of a sudden I cannot connect to the internet using either Airport or even with a direct Ethernet cable. Two iPads my iPhone my Mom's PC and another iMac all are connecting fine via wi-fi. I am using an Airport Extreme connected to the cable modem. I have tossed my System Configuration folder into the trash to no avail. I have also removed the wi-fi connetion from the Network section of System Preferences and re-added it, nothing works and I cannot connect. It tells me that I have the self-assigned IP address of 164.254.33.221 and will not be able to connect to the internet. Everything worked well and then, poof! I can no longer connect.

    I have the exact same problem. I spent two hours on the phone with AT&T because at first I thought it was my ISP. it wasn't...both iPhones and our network bluray work fine. of course our warranty is up, so I'm not sure what to do next. hopefully someone has some solutions.

    I'm gonna keep an eye on this thread, having similar issue. I have several Macs at home, all are able to connect to Airport Extreme with no problems. Yesterday, for no apparent reason, my Mac Mini Server all of a sudden stopped connecting to the internet. WiFi is on, network is selected and has 4 bars, I can even connect to this Mac from one of my others and share the screen - but no internet. I've tried restarting everything but nothing works. I'm stumped...

    here's an update on my internet problem:  I took my MacBook pro in to have the genius bar at our local apple store have a look. it actually puzzled them, which in some small way made me feel better that it wasn't a simple user error. they finally fixed my Internet problem by wiping the whole system clean and reinstalling the operating system. the only downside is that I will have to reinstall my programs, pictures, music, etc; but at least I have Internet again. good luck everyone.

    I don't know about you, but reinstalling my whole system is not an option. There has to be another solution out there? anyone run into this problem find a way to fix it? This is annoying...
