I have had this problem for a long long time, but it only rears it's ugly head when my Router's internet connection goes down.


It appears that when the Router is working, even without internet connection, this overrides my ability to, for example, tether to my iPhone USB or WiFi 3G service.


I have to physically unplug the ethernet connection to get the iMac to use the WiFi or USB. If the router is hooked up, the iMac says "eff you" to the WiFi and USB tethering.


Is this normal?

iMac (27-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 1TB Fusion drive, iPhone 5, dual G5
