Every time I turn my iMac on it will not connect to the internet until I open System Preferences / network / Assist me. that reports that my internet access appears to be OK, and hey presto my web home page appears, and everything if ok. The same happens if I have opened Mail, nothing until I've gone through the above proceedure.

This has been happening for a week.

The iMac uses Mountain Lion.

I have no such difficulty with my Macbook Pro which runs Snow Leopard.


I have deleted the safari caches and logs, to no avail.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
