I've now tested this thing on multiple networks and even tried crossover cables direct to my laptop. Even sniffed the traffic and absolutely nothing comes out of the Ethernet Shield when attempting DHCP so I'm thinking its a bum unit. Guess I'll swap it out at RS.
So is the ethernet shield going back to radio shack? The below may explain the 0.0.0.0 issue using the 1.0 IDE.http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,52664.msg628004.html#msg628004
Ethernet Shield isn't really a shield at all and uses the ICSP connector for SPI communication

Did I miss something?

I think it is funny that it was radio shacks fault for you apparently trying to use misatched parts. RS sells a mega and ethernet shield that apparently work together.
I see your point. The boards the OP is using were not meant to plug directly into each other. But that has never stopped me.
QuoteI see your point. The boards the OP is using were not meant to plug directly into each other. But that has never stopped me. I think it points up the fact that in the near future trouble shooting will require very clear statements on the specific boards being used, the IDE being used, and the code, due to all the changes. I looked on ebay last night for ethernet shields, and didn't see any like the old wiznet I have. They seem to all be the new UNO/Mega compatable units (wiznet for ~$22 shipped, not bad!), but they didn't seem the have the POE option of the Radio Shack one.
That again, is purely a comprehension deficiency on your part zoomkat.
