I recently bought a macbook pro with retina display. My problem is that I can connect to the net with my wifi but

I cannot connect with my thunderbolt to ethernet adapter. The router shows that it is receiving the connection but I get

a different IP address

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    Turn off Wi-Fi and try again. If you still can't connect, move the Ethernet connection to the top of the connection list. Check the settings to make sure you're getting an address from DHCP.

    I am getting an ip address from the DHCP but the address is 169.254.77.54

     

    That's not an address from DHCP; it's a self-assigned address, which means that DHCP is not working. Restart the router. If there's no change, something is wrong with the adapter or with the router.

    You're not getting an address from the router via the adapter. That's all I can tell you. Maybe the adapter is incompatible with the Ethernet interfaces on the router. Maybe the cable is damaged. You can come up with such ideas as well as I can.
