Has anyone tried (or heard of) an "ad hoc" network connection and knows whether or not it will work with the Wii?
Basically, you setup a compter-to-computer network in Windows where two wireless adapters communicate with one another and share an Internet connection without the use of a router. Last night, I actually got my Wii to recognize the "network" that I setup as an access point, but I get the error code 51330 each time I try to connect. I think the reason is the laptop that I'm using as the host computer is from my work and has intense security which I can't really disable. I'm really hoping someone else got this to work.
I know I'm being cheap by trying to avoid a router, but there's nothing wrong with saving some money. Plus I am trying to be a little bit different and also viewing this a "proof of concept" experiment.
Sorry for the long post. It's my first post, so go easy. Yes, I realize my username betrays me on this one...
