 Subject:  Re: AW: [m0n0wall] tracking down ip
 Date:  Thu, 26 Jan 2006 13:25:48 -0800
In most cases these days, if a NIC fails to pick up a DHCP address, it 
reverts to a standard IP address. These are usually in the 169.x.x.x range.

Investigate why this NIC might not be picking up a DHCP address.
