DHCP not working (Self-assigned IP)

Recommended Posts

First of all, it's impressive that Niresh Mavericks installed perfectly out of the box, while all other builds I've tried have given me kernel panic.

 

The only problem I have with the installation is that while my Wi-Fi hardware works and connects to the wireless network, it fails to actually get Internet access because it does not properly initialize the network via DHCP, and instead assigns a 169.x.x.x self-assigned IP. The Renew DHCP button doesn't fix the problem.

 

I first tried with a TP-Link TL-WN727N USB adapter, with the Mediatek driver and Ralink Wireless Utility. Once I actually got it to connect, but the connection was VERY slow and constantly timing out. At other times, I didn't even get that far, and the Wireless Utility, bizarrely, displayed RX Limit = 1Mpbs, which is way too low.

 

Now I did a clean reinstall with a newly bought TP-Link TL-WDN4800 PCI-E adapter (the system sees it out of the box as an Atheros40 Airport), but with no success. The installer sees Wi-Fi, displays a panel icon and prompts me to connect - and does connect to the network, but fails to get Internet access. The installed system suffers from the same problem, and network properties show the self-assigned IP.

 

Any ideas?

 

CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 (Haswell)

Motherboard: ASUS H81M (Intel H81 Express chipset)

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

Wi-Fi: TP-Link TL-WDN4800

The problem still persists after an update to 10.9.3.

I fixed it by switching the router from 802.11b/g/n to just 802.11g. It was just OS X having this problem, though, Windows and Linux worked without this change. Still, at least it works now.

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
