    Often that's just the inability to locate the DHCP server. 169.x.x.x IP addresses are Windows assigned IP addresses - not DHCP. It's called an Automatic Private IP Address (APIPA). It could be something as simple as an unplugged/bad ethernet cable to a faulty NIC to not having a valid DHCP server at all. It has nothing to do with SP2, but everything to do with Windows.
