Re: Ethernet and wireless suddenly not working on Etch
I'm still not able to resolve my issue...=( It seems to think my router is an IPv6 router, and I don't know how to make it see that's it's a regular IPv4 router only...
Any help is much appreciated.

Looking at the broadcast clearly that should be 169.254.180.46. The range from 169.254.0.0 to 169.254.255.255
is a special non-routable range which I believe indicates that your router is not connected to the Internet.
Try Googling 169.254.1.1
