    The homepage is probably popping up because it is cached. Have you played with your wireless router settings?

    To clear your cache click on "Safari" in the menu bar and choose "Empty Cache".

    Try turning off the wireless router for about a minute and turning it back on again. Assuming all of the settings on your MB are correct it should be ok.

    If not, we need more info to help:

    1. What kind of encryption are you using on your wireless router?
    2. Do you have MAC address filtering on?
    3. Can you see the network name?
