Apple & TCP/IP
Posted on 2014-01-07
Hi, This morning I am attempting to configure a brand new, just out of the box TP-Link TL-R470T load balance router. I hooked it to my iMac via ethernet and watched the TCP/IP tab in the Advanced Network Preferences window expecting it to pick up 192.168.0.xxx from DHCP in the router. It did not, it just assigns a private address after a minute, presumably due to no DHCP service being available.
The ethernet connection shows as physically connected both in Network Preferences on the iMac and on the LED display on the router, but no addressing is taking place. I used the brand new ethernet cable out of the box with the router.
Doesn't this work the same as with a Windows computer?
