    The wifi usb adapter is extremely annoying.

    So my wireless router won't work and I can't afford one atm because I don't need a wireless network for anything else. So I bought the wifi usb adapter. The thing is, the stupid thing will pop up a bubble saying a user is connected each time the wii synchs with it. Which is like every 5 minutes when it's in standby. Is there ANY way to turn that &%$#$ notification off?

    I also hate the adapters. A wireless router is so much better for online gaming.

    It is when you work from home on your computer and watch movies and such. I know I can just unplug it or turn it off, and I do, i just wish there was a way to simply stop those notifications.

    Yes, I did. But not only is there nothing at all wrong with the thing, it doesn't make any mentioning of how to disable that popup bubble.

    I know nothing about the WiFi USB attachment since I don't own one. I just know alittle from what I have read on the Nintendo Website help area.

    Here are my questions:

    Do you own a Wireless router, and if so why are you using the WiFi since the Wii can be run of the router

    where is the WiFi plugged into the Wii or a computer. I think the pop ups notification has a setting in the computer.

    What version software are you using, 1.04?

    What OS of Windows are you using since Vista is not compatible?

    If all else fails fill this out and you will get a response in regards to your problem

    I do own a wireless router. I am using the wifi usb adapter because the router isn't working and since I sold my laptop, I don't really need to buy a new one. the usb adapter was far cheaper than a new router.

    The wifi has to plug into a computer. it interfaces with the wii through wifi.

    Yes it's 1.04

    Windows xp sp2


    Hmm.. I guess I can try that. But since there is no apparent setting to disable notifications, I was hoping someone would tell me how to alter it so it would not notify me anymore. I doubt Nintendo would give me such an answer, but we'll see..
