Hello all - i have recently built my 3rd kakewalk machine on a ga-z68ap-d3 rev 1 board, and it went smoothly as always. I've noticed an interesting problem, however. Every few days, when the machine boots, it stops connecting to the internet, it gets a 169.xxx.xxx.xxx address assigned to it. If i plug my macbook pro or a pc into the same port, i get a valid IP no problem, but when i plug it into the hackintosh again, no connection.
Some additional information: if i reboot the machine, the problem persists. If i power down, turn the power supply off, and then power on, i get a proper connection.
use multibeast 4.6.1 and install gigabyte ethernet driver, it's for 10.7.X but it's work for me with my ga-z68-ap d3 rev 2 on 10.8
The problem is back after the 10.8.2 update. Intalled the gigabyte ethernet driver from multibeast 4.6.1 and 5.0.2 but the problem remains - any ideas?
Can't help you with the root of the problem (I have the same issue on the same board and have tried the same fixes), but I can save you the power cycle maybe.
