AirPort does not have an IP address and cannot connect to the Internet.
My wireless internet/airport works perfectly fine at home and anywhere else I take it. However, when I try to connect to the internet on my school’s campus I get the message that Says… “AirPort has the self-assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the Internet. (yellow dot)” I used to be able to restart my computer and connect to the internet for a short period of time, but not as of late. The IP address that shows up is
With internet connection (subnet) (router) & (dns servers)

without internet connection
255.255.0. (subnet)
‘NO DIGITS’ (router)
‘NO DIGITS’ (dns servers)

This is my 5th semester here and It’s never given me problems in the past. This is the first time that I’ve encountered this problem. I did however just have a new logic board and keypad installed onto my computer. My sister spilt juice onto my computer. Other than that there have been no changes. And like I said, I have no problem connecting to other networks (home, dunkin donuts, mcdonalds, friends houses.....) Only the wireless networdk located on my school’s campus. I could use a little help ☺
I’ve also tried to renew the DHCP lease and ‘set a new location’, but those didn’t work either..
