    Hi, this has worked for a few...


    Make a New Location, Using network locations in Mac OS X ...




    10.7 & 10.8…


    System Preferences>Network, top of window>Locations>Edit Locations, little plus icon, give it a name.



    10.5.x/10.6.x/10.7.x instructions...


    System Preferences>Network, click on the little gear at the bottom next to the + & - icons, (unlock lock first if locked), choose Set Service Order.


    The interface that connects to the Internet should be dragged to the top of the list.


    Is that Interface dragged to the top of Network>Show:>Network Port Configurations.


    Instead of joining your Network from the list, click the WiFi icon at the top, and click join other network. Fill in everything as needed.


    For 10.5/10.6, System Preferences>Network, unlock the lock if need be, highlight the Interface you use to connect to Internet, click on the advanced button, click on the DNS tab, click on the little plus icon, then add these numbers...



    Click OK.

    Thanks for the help but it didn't work.. It keeps saying that the wi-fi does not have an IP-adress..

    Is access control setup on the Home Router?

    I guess so..

    Then you'll need to add this Mac's MAC Adress to the list.
