    Wi-Fi USB connecting problem

    Hey so just today I bought a Wi-Fi USB for my Wii. I plugged it in, installed it, and it looked like it was going to work. I went through the set up process sucessfully until the connection test. So I took down my firewall which was apparently the problem, then it had a new problem saying it couldn't connect to the internet. But when I start the connection test the green icon saying it has the strongest connection on the Wi-Fi register is on. But the test still fails. So I went to network connections and if I click Automatically find IP and DNS, it won't connect the USB anymore, it just says Acquiring Network Address. I go to the other option where it lets you type in the IP address, and I'm missing the Default Gateway, and both DNS addresses? Any ideas? Has anyone had the same problem? I use Golden Triangle ADSL, I don't know if anyone knows of that connection because I'm pretty sure it's local.

    Thanks.

    You are doing better than me if you got it to install. I have tried it on many computers, around 4, and it wouldn't install on any of them. Some it wouldn't recognise the damned thing at all. I got so frustrated with the thing, and also with Nintendo support, that I went and bought a router. This opened up another kettle of fish. Long story short, finally I got my router working, and everythings working fine. My advice: Buy a router.

    Yeah, routers are much more useful than their USB wifi counterparts. They are easier to set up, maintain and control and if you get a good brand will generally have very good customer support if you need it.

    EB games

    So I just called the guy at EB Games to see if I could return it, and I explained my problem and he said he thought it was defective and he told me to come in and exchange it for a new one. Has anyone tried that?

    I use WiFi USB adaptor myself and have encountered no problems. The only thing mine requires is for the computer to be turned on in order for it to work. Some modems aren't connected until the computer itself is turned on. Try leaving your computer on and connecting, and if it persists to fail, then you may want to try a router.

    PM me if you add me, I'll add you back.
