just for info, for those who do not know the program: the question seems to be about QGIS.

Oi! If you add a WGS-84 dataset, you should specify this source also as WGS-84(EPSG:4326). Then if you want do add an rendered OSM Online-Map as baselayer (via TMS or WMS layer), you can try to pick already Google Pseudeo Mercator (EPSG:3857) if supported, or also WGS-84.

Then most important step: You enable 'On the fly CRS transformation' in your project properties (e.g. by picking the globe button at the right side of the status bar in the QGIS window). There you set the project CRS to Google Mercator. E voila, the basemap looks right again :)
