    Any tech wiz

    hi, I'm trying to connect a wii to the internet but not got a clue,

    It's broadband with a high speed modem cable running from the phone socket into the modem, from the modem is one cable with a usb connection going into the pc


    The extras i have bought are a XBOX360 (straight through) ethernet cable fitted with RJ45 connectors that connects a console to a modem for online gaming.
    The other thing is a USB LAN adaptor.


    I run the cable from the pc into the adapter that was plugged into the Wii, and got an eroor code (51420)
    I've also done many searches on this forum and on the net with luck.


    HELP

    Hmm, interesting one. I presume you've got it set up correctly. ie. Wii>USB Lan adaptor>USB cable>computer>ethernet cable>Modem>Phone socket.

    After that, you need a computer with XP on it. Also, I think you'll need to make sure any firewalls aren't blocking the Wii (so you may have to determine if it's being blocked, either using the Windows firewall or something like MaCafee or Norton.)

    If anything seems wrong, ask again (but try and provide as much detail as possible).


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Sounds good.

    Has the computer come up with any error messages when trying to connect the Wii to PC? i.e. has it popped up saying anything about firewall rules or anything? Also, was there any PC software (i.e. DVD/CD-ROM) with the package?

    No software came with adapter/cables, when i plug the cable in to the pc from the Wii nothing happens, no recognition of an external device! i do not know if it should though.

    I'm now just reading something about DHCP on the net, looks confusing though.

    This is good if you have a router.

    If you don't then I think you're going to have to give me details of firewall software...

    EDIT: Just been reading around on the internet, that to plug it into a PC, you'll need a "connector cable" that doesn't come with the pack. It should look like this:

    Here's some on play.com.

    And some on amazon.co.uk.

    Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.


    If you are connecting directly to a modem, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. To access these settings:
    On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these exactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
    Sounds like you may need to configure the Wii to use the same IP address as your computer uses.

    Sounds to me like you need to setup internet connection sharing, and of course it looks like you need a crossover cable to run directly to your NIC instead of regular Cat5.
