IBook won't connect to Internet - Mac Applications & Software

I've recently installed Jaguar on my iBook. I'm trying to connect it to my cable modem but the TCP panel under System preference/ Network shows an IP number that is self-assigned and it won't accept an IP assigned by the service provider. Help....

    Default IBook won't connect to Internet

    I've recently installed Jaguar on my iBook. I'm trying to connect it to
    my cable modem but the TCP panel under System preference/ Network shows
    an IP number that is self-assigned and it won't accept an IP assigned by
    the service provider.

    Help.

    Try to create a new location and reconfigure it to use DHCP, see if that
    works.

    Tried that. No luck. It's stuck in this self-assigned IP mode no matter
    what I do. I've even reinstalled OSX twice, reformating the HD each time.

    there's a lot of different things that could be the problem. are you using
    a router? if so, it could be a configuration problem with the router.

    No problem with my router. I have two other Macs both connected to the
    net without any problem. I've reinstalled OSX, I've checked the ethernet
    cable, I've recreated a new Location in the Network panel. "Configure"
    is set to "Using DHCP". This is a no brainer on my other Macs. Nothing
    seems to work for my iBook.

    could it be a bad piece of hardware--a bad ethernet cable, a malfunctioning
    airport card, something like that, so that your computer can't grab an IP
    address from the DHCP server?

    Try connecting the iBook directly to another Mac using a crossover
    ethernet cable. You should be able to see the other Mac using Connect to
    Server. If not, you have a hardware problem.
