i've uploaded the user guide (manual) from my wifi card here.. if somebody knows how to get this to work then please have a look at it.. thanks
Your WiFi card is 192.168.0.1 on your PC right, since you're using Internet Connection Sharing?
The Wii needs manually configured, use these settings:
Wii IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Primary DNS: 192.168.0.1
Secondary DNS: 192.168.0.1
I hope this works!
I know you're trying to configure what you've already purchased, but why not purchase a small wireless router? that way you could have your PC turned off and still have Internet access... Just my 2 cents.
Wireless routers can be had for around $20 if you look around actually, that brings up a good point. You can still have all the features as if you were directly connected if you DMZ your PC through the router.

i can't do that because my ISP allows only one PC connected to internet (it's blocked through mac address).. however i have a second pc connected to my first one and the internet goes there through a proxy server installed on the first pc... however there is no option in wii to set up internet throught proxy server..Originally Posted by jledesma
well have you accepted your wii to connect to the internet if you have your just most likely having a plain connection problem i have a wifi conection and when i first tryed to connect it, it took a long time just keep trying or look to see if they have an answer to your error on nintendo.com
What your ISP doesn't know, won't hurt you. How you set up your home network is none of their concern. And unless you tell them, they will never know (they COULD find out, however it would take more work than they are willing to put in)Originally Posted by lele007
<editted due to re-reading your posts)
Make sure that ICS is working properly for your other PC (I assume it is) set up the Wii manually using the same net block your second PC is using (if the ip is set to 192.168.0.2, then use any IP other than .2 or .1 (up to .254, for example 126.96.36.199, subnet 255.255.255.0, default gateway <or router address> 192.168.0.1, and then get the DNS that your ISP assigned your main PC) Now, if for some reason you have different IP addresses set then I gave, just change what info I gave you accordingly).
Set your WiFI card into AP mode. Set the SSID to whatever you wish, and set the security to whatever you wish (I would suggest getting it working with NO security first, just to take things one step at a time). Then your Wii should connect up just fine. NOTE: Don't expect the WiiConnect24 to work though this way as it requires port forwarding which is not setup at this stage, but that should impact you minimally if at all.
I would HIGLY recommend however that you get yourself some sort of routing software for your main PC and dump ICS ASAP.

doesn't works.. i set all the parameters manually...Originally Posted by SuperH
all set as above -> get the error when wii can't find the SSID etc.
if i set the gateway to my primary network cards IP (which has the internet) -> i get 50100 error (No internet connection)
tried as AP and as P2P mode
