    I'm having the same problem. I actually e-mailed Datel about it, but they say there's nothing wrong.

    I've had the LAN adapter for ages and never had a problem until recently. I've updated my Wii twice recently (Metroid and Mario Galaxy). That's when the problem started. I'm guessing a Wii system update blocked the LAN adapter out so we'd run and buy Nintendo's official adapter.

    'Course, the only way to find out if I'm right is to buy a Nintendo LAN adapter, and I'd rather NOT do that.

    well, if you have your wii modded a bit that might be it grindie, but i dunno about the other guy. after searching the internet for hours upon hours trying to get my datel wifi dongle up and running (and still, sometimes it just wont work), i refuse to ever buy another datel product. their customer service is crap and their products that ive had suck. i had to basically learn about IP addresses and DNS servers and MAC addresses on my own to configure the damn thing.
