[Please help] [Not working]Connecting the Arduino Yun to WIFI

Im working on a MacBook Pro 10.9.4 using The latest Arduino 1.5.7 IDE.

When I try to connect the Arduino Yun to WIFI i am able to connect and it says to click on the link, it then takes me to arduino.local and nothing loads for several minutes. I uploaded the Wifi status sketch and it seems to work it prints out this:

Current WiFi configuration
SSID: Networkname
Mode: Client
Signal: 61%
Encryption method: None
Interface name: wlan0
Active for: 11 minutes
IP address:
MAC address: 90:A2:DA:F1:0E:77
RX/TX: 11/16 KBs

but when I'm in the network name ( my mac) and so is the Arduino when I try to connect to it using Arduino.local nothing loads. I also tried to ssh to root@arduino.local to see what happens and I get the following:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname arduino.local: nodename nor servname provided, or not known

I really need to get this working for a project I'm doing but I have no idea what the problem is.

Thanks in advance!
