Hi. I have problem with wifi. I saw same topic here but didn't find solution for me.

When I used Snow Leopard every was fine. I used internet on my iPhone by wifi from Mac mini.

When I update to Lion I could not configure wifi. There is no internet. However iPhone show that it is.

I can only enter on www.ya.ru and nowhere else.

I also tried use static IP on Mac mini (10.0.2.1) and Mask (255.255.255.0)


Please help.

Thanks.

    Disconnect your Modem from power, disconnect your Router from power,

    shutdown your mac.

    After 15 seconds connect your modem, wait 5 minutes.

    Then connect your router, wait 1 minute,

    Then start your mac.

    I assumed everything WiFi: what I meant with "connect" is "connect to the power outlet". You do not have to touch the ethernet cable between the modem and the router. Disconnect = take the power connector out, connect = put the power connector back.

    Also on the Mac>Wifi icon, did you click on Create Network for the iPhone to join?

     

    iPhone can't/wont use 10.0.x.x, but in the 169.254.x.x range that the Airport creates as an IP for sharing Internet.

     

    The Mac is acting as a Router for the iPhone, not the Router.

    Did the Wifi icon change from bars to another symbol?

    you do not even have internet when the ethernet cable is connected to your mini, I see.

    Reset the modem, and better reset everything as I said above (the ethernet cable between modem and router!!!).
