Start a new thread with the question in - more likely to get results
Yeah, that was my plan anyway. It seemed likely that posting here might not get the attention of Mr. 4D.
(although that IP address is the one allocated when no DHCP server was found IIRC)
Yeah, it is the so-called "link-level" address.
But what is weird is that even when I switch back to "On the network" mode (from "local AP" mode), the IP address (according to "ifconfig") stays at the 169... address (even though the rest of the world can still access it via it's normal 192... address). Odd.
P.S. It sure would be a good thing if we could edit thread titles here. But I suppose starting a new thread is a workaround to that.
The recent thread that started out being about "snarky responses" and then morphed into old timers being old timers, really could have used a thread title change.
If this post appears in the wrong forums category, my apologies.
