I'm in a dorm room and trying to use my USB adapter

Everything goes well in the install and the app opens with no problem. I do what the screen says and hit next once the app is installed. My Wii shows up on the window, but once i grant permission to connect it will just sit there and not do anything. When I did it at home it went to the next screen right as I hit grant.

On campus we use Westinghouse 802.1x Authentication. And I'm guessing that has something to do with it, as in the Wii doesn't have the software to authenticate that. So I went to the authentication tab under the "network place" that the adapter makes and disabled the authentication and firewall.

and still I get nothing.

has anyone had any experience with something like this?
