comment Keyboard shortcut to unhide or unminimize a window in OS X
"You must depress the Command key after pressing the Option key!" This is confusing - how can you depress the Command key if you were already holding it in?

comment No internet connection when connected via wi-fi, but fine via ethernet (DD-WRT)
I'm on a Mac, but that's beside the point - I've tried to connect with this machine as well as a windows machine, and neither is able to get an outside connection when connected to this router via wi-fi.

To whomever downvoted this question: could you please explain why? Thanks!

What should I be looking for when I run ifconfig? I'm sure there is something blocking my wireless connectivity, but I can't figure out what, which is why I asked the question here.

How do I check that I have received the IP from the DHCP pool. How do I check that the wireless NIC MAC is not blocked in the router?

comment DD-WRT DNS lookup failure
Turns out this isn't isolated to connecting with a Mac - my old windows machine also can't get an outside connection via wifi. I'll ask a new question for this.

comment DD-WRT DNS lookup failure
Now it seems as though I'm able to get an outside connection when my computer is connected to the router with an ethernet cable, but not when connected via wi-fi. Marking this as accepted since it seems to have solved the problem, and I'll probably go ask about the wi-fi issue on apple.SE, since I've had a similar wi-fi problem with another network, and only since upgrading to Mountain Lion.

comment DD-WRT DNS lookup failure
Actually, I take that back - it seemed to work, but then the same problem returned. I'll report back if I can gather any mor info. Does the MAC address eventually revert back to the original from the cloned one? If so, that would explain it working temporarily.

You were correct - I cloned the MAC address of the other router, and it works great now. THANKS!
