    Did you look through any of the other threads before posting that?

    It's been answered a hundred times over; if your laptop has TWO network connections, wired/wireless, then use your wired connection for internet access, and use Internet Connection Sharing to share that signal over the wireless nic (assuming you are running xp).

    You can either pick up a wireless signal and share it over wired to your usb-to-ethernet adapter on the wii, or vice versa, share the wireless signal and let the wii find it.

    Look at thread "College Internet" for more info.

    You need a router, it wont connect to stailete internet (thats probably what your friend used) unless you get one of those nintendo wifi things but ppl are saying they dont work very well.

    KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.

    you don't need a router, you can make your computer do the routing if you have two network interface cards.

    So, you set the Wii to auto obtain IP address. Did you set up your laptop to give them out?

    okay so far so good it seems. what you need to do is put in the ip info into the wii manually. you got put in the SSID and got past that part from what I gathered, so now you need to give your wii a fixed ip address, something like 192.168.1.x just make sure it's a random number below 255 and no other machine is using it. then enter subnet mask, 255.255.255.0. then you need to enter your ISP's DNS info. i don't remember how to do this on xp, call your isp or google it. then you need to tell the wii that your computer is the router by putting in the ip address of the NIC that's sharing the signal.


    that's how it's done, and even then it probably still won't work. it'd be a hell of a lot easier to do it backwards; sharing a wireless signal over a wired cable and just getting the damn usb thing.
