Quick question about Bonjour - can it be uninstalled/disabled without affecting itunes?

Don't want to hijack the thread so you can pm if you prefer.

Thanks

BTW I don't have any issues with it.

Can you post another ipconfig /all here. It's the only way to tell whats going on.

Bonjour is only Apples version of universal plug and play, it's not required on windows systems at all. Removing it won't change iTunes.

You're wired to the router and still getting a 169.254.* IP address? That is a public blackhole IP (goes nowhere and is never registered to anything that is routable on the internet), not an internal one that you'd get from your router, so that is quite weird. You are also connected at the same time to your wireless network. If you are connected by a wired connection, disable your wireless connection for the time being. They could both somehow be competing.

Is your router configured to administer DHCP to wired clients? And is your machine configured for DHCP?

If the wired connection was working "which it's not" it would automatically over ride the wireless connection "if it was working that is". So the wireless connection shouldn't be keeping the wired connection from working. I have tested this out. I think the OP needs the wireless just to get to this site so he can post here.

I suspect the router needs to be reset and the manual DNS entries in the IPv4 properties need to be removed as I mentioned earlier. The OP needs to Use the routers DNS settings instead as I've seen that cause problems in the past between wired and wireless connections.

I agree that wired should override the wireless, which it always has for me, but in a separate thread a while back someone was arguing how theirs never did. So, I suggest it be temporarily disabled when troubleshooting a wired connection anymore because of this (however it may have happened with that person).

The wireless should be disabled "I agree" and the router reset and dialed back in, plus the manual DNS entries need to be removed from the IPv4 properties. Although connecting the wired always overrides the wireless connection for me, it's just to eliminate loose ends.

The sad thing is that I'm pretty darn certain that the famous Bonjour service caused all the problems in the first place. Steve Jobs little curse to the microsoft world.

Remove the DNS entries from where it says "Use the following DNS server addresses" and set to automatically obtain, because looking at the ipconfig /all they were set statically. I've seen this cause problems in the past so best to just use the router's DNS settings for now.

As I said in my last post, this will be a faulty Ethernet card! Sounds like all other avenues have been explored! Best thing to try is a different network such as a friends.
