    Hi all.

    I am having an issue connecting 2 networks.

    I am connected to a WiMax device using USB:
    Dafault Gateway is for my Internet.

    I am also connected to my home LAN network giving me an IP of
    with gateway:

    I can ping another system on my LAN network successfully. I can also ping my WiMax default gateway from my Macbook.
    The problem is I cannot access the internet. What settings if any do I need for that ?

    In the core of a black hole.
    It's never smart to have two devices with DHCP servers with the same base Gateway, example,

    Have one set to and the other to for instance, you get conflicts the way it is set up now.

    Now, I am not a network IT guy but I ran into similar problems, as soon as I changed those the problems were gone.

    Also, keep the active internet connection on top in network preferences, although it should work if it is not.
