    here's a question for fr3344ll is there any way of safley playing with the wi fi dongle on? This of course means fire wall is down. Is there any way of using the firewall temporarely so that i can play with out fear?

    I use Mcafee as the internet security thingy?

    gizzavii,

    is there an option within the mcafee software which allows the entering
    of "trusted" network / pc's?

    i've never used mcafee so i'm unsure as to whether it can be done.

    see, in zone alarm, there's a firewall "rule" which can be modified to
    allow a bunch of different computers to connect to the network.

    basically, all you need to do is either:

    1. enter the IP address of the Wii into this trusted zone, or
    2. enter a range of IP's which cover your network, i.e. 192.168.1.1:192.168.1.50

    next, you would reduce the LAN side security to "medium" to allow
    ICS to function.

    there's probably a similar thing going on with mcafee, but as mentioned
    i've never used it so i could just be talking shit.

    have a look, it won't break anything if you don't change it!!

    Figured this might be the case, that is probably still do able as I'm sure I could get a laptop home from work and do the initial set-up.

    Thanks for the help.

    i haven't got it at the mo'....way too busy trying to get through
    Zelda Twighlight Princess (and loving it immensely).

    i'm a little unsure whether or not i'd like MSC tbh, i was more
    used to playing PES6 on the 360.

    mind you...i'm a bit pissed with football, what with the Baggies
    losing the play off final against Derby......

    I suggest NOT buying the Wii USB dongle. I assume your computer has an unused network connection? Consider buying the wired adapter for the Wii and a cross over cable. Connect the Wii to this unused network connection and enable internet connection sharing in windows.

    Far easier to troubleshoot and no need to rely on proprietary hardware/software.

    Would you consider buying a cable modem with an ethernet port on it? You can get Docsis 2.1 modem for CHEAP used and then connect a router.

    hahajokehehe NO!

    seeing as the OP works for his broadband company, i'm suprised that he
    hasn't asked for a wireless router...they will supply a netgear 614 (54Mbps)
    wireless router.

    ciper, here in the UK virgin media users get two options for broadband:
    1. cable (co-ax) based....the modem supplied "usually" has both USB (shit)
    and ethernet connectivity (good).
    2. if cable is not in your area, then they supply you with broadband over ADSL
    which they then give you a crappy USB modem.

    like you though, i can't for the life of me understand why he doesn't want to
    change his current set-up and include a wireless router...much less hassle
    than the USB dongle.

    heh,

    i'm actually CompTIA A+, N+ and a MCP (windows xp professional).

    tbh, those qualification count for diddly squat when it comes
    to setting up home networks and games consoles!!

    it's mainly experience that matters....i've set-up quite a few "SOHO"
    networks in my time, but i don't think i'd like to do it full time.

    i still can't quite get over the fact that we (the baggies) managed to lose
    to a team we comprehensively outplayed. but....it's who sticks the ball into
    the old "onion bag" who wins, and despite us scoring more goals in the league
    than any other team in the 4 divisions (with the exception of ManU) we couldn't
    score when it mattered most.
