That would involve quite a bit of work, including converting all my NSStrings to CStrings and then back again, and with my luck there's no guarantee it would work any better. I'd like to keep it...

What causes "Self-Assigned IP"? 6,349 Views / 11 Replies  
My ethernet connection hasn't worked for four days now. Network Preferences says it has a self-assigned ip, presumably because it can't negotiate an IP with the router.

It doesn't matter what Apple wants - that's the point of preference files. Web browsers and other internet-enabled apps would be stupid to follow Apple's default after you've explicitly overrode it.
