    wi-fi usb connector not working.

    my usb connector isnt work ing and i went through everything posible to fix it. the i came across this message:Important: The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector has been discontinued until further notice.

    source: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/sys...etworkTest.jsp

    does this mean that all the usb connectors made by nintendo arent working?

    I think so. I was shocked as well when I called them about their faulty USB. Maybe they are working on something better. Maybe....

    It works perfectly for me, as well. Do you have Windows XP? How far is your
    Wii from your USB Connector? Did the error give you any 5-6 numbers? If so,
    what are the numbers?

    Ahh! Good, 5 digits, all right. Now, you have to go to Nintendo.com.
    They have a site that you could enter the 5-6 digit error code. (Below)
    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/sys...rors/index.jsp
    All right, now that you have entered the code, it will show you, what
    you're doing wrong, or what the problem is.

    For your error code, it says ..

    The Wii console is not able to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.

    1. Check for interference.
    1. Check the location of your PC/Wii console
    If possible move the PC and/or Wii console away from walls and off the floor, and try to place them in a central location in your home. Also, try to keep them away from metal objects such as metal filing cabinets which can cause interference.

    2. Attach the extension cable to the USB Connector
    this helps to move it further away from hardware in the PC that may be causing interference.

    3. Wireless noise
    Noise from Cordless devices (cordless phones), or wireless electronics (wireless keyboards, headphones, cell phones), especially those using the 2.4GHz frequency, can interfere with your wireless signal. In addition, older microwave models can cause wireless interference.

    2. Try uninstalling the Nintendo Wi-FI USB Connector software, and re-install. For step-by-step directions, including a link to the latest software, click here.

    3. Does your PC have any security programs (firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-adware, etc.) installed? If you are using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, and have a software firewall or other computer security program installed on your computer, there may be additional steps you must complete to allow a successful connection.

    "Trusted" Applications:
    If your firewall or PC security program keeps a list of trusted applications (also known as a "trusted zone"), the following programs are installed with the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, and require internet communications. If prompted by your firewall or PC security program, add these to the list of trusted applications. This information may also apply to certain computer security applications, such as anti-virus, anti-spyware, etc.:
    o Nintendo Wi-Fi Connector USB (NintendoWFCReg.exe)
    o Setup.exe (when installing the USB Connector)
    o SoftAPInstDrv.bin
    o mdriver.exe

    4. It is possible that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is not compatible with the Wii console. For instance, if you need to login with a user name and password when you try to go online for the first time after restarrting your PC, your ISP is likely not compatible. Please contact your service provider for more information.
