    Wi-Fi problems

    Hello there

    I bought a WiFi MAX dongle for the Nintendo DS, which I was told as being able to work for the Wii. I've gone through the tutorial on the official Nintendo website numerous times, yet I get the following codes:


    randomly. I've tried almost everything I can think of (changing channels, automatic IP searching, etc) yet nothing seems to work.

    One thing happened first time I did it on my computer: An error appeared, saying my IP address couldn't be refreshed.

    Anyway, I've gone through 4 items trying to get this to work, and i'm about to explode with frustration. If anyone has any suggestions, please, I'm open to almost anything that could possibly help me.

    Thanks very much

    IP refreshing always effs for me, its not a huge deal. But if you do have any anti-virus programs or firewalls running [outside of windows firewall] make sure that you have the permissions set for the WiFi Max dongle. I'll look around to see if i can find a port number that the WiFi adapter uses.
