Question

If you get a 169 IP it's due to DHCP not communicating your netblock/device correctly.

Just slap a manual ip 169 to your computer on same router and you can connect.

No magic here. Some people set up networks on non routable 169 ips(same as 192.x, 172.x, 10.x)

Definitely true, but I encountered a strange behavior lately where I set my machine to correct parameters on ESXi 6.5 recently, and it wouldn't save my changes (it defaulted to SATA instead of SCSI for the virtual HDDs).

Once I deleted the machine and started from scratch it worked, but this is something you wouldn't think of. Since I set the correct parameters and clicked "save" I assumed it would do so..
