    Can Wii & PC Be on net together?

    I have a wii lan adapter which works fine plugged into the modem when my pc
    is turned off. But then when my pc is turned on and using the net i cannot connect the wii to the internet.

    Is there anyway way i can have both on the internet at the same time?

    p.s. im using the auto detect ip on the wii, is this anything to do with it?

    Router needed

    If I had to guess i would say that you can't based on your setup. It would depend on the style modem you got for the internet connection. You most likley need a router. The modem would connect to the router and then the wii and the PC would connet to the router (either wireless or with cables depending on which kind of router you get). You should be able to get a decent router for about $70 at you local computer store.

    In that case you should be able to do connect both to the internet at the same time. Check your router setup to make sure "DHCP" is on and has a range setup of more than 1 IP address. If your router is handing out only 1 IP address at a time it would defently cause the problem that you are descriping. You have both the computer and the Wii connected with the same type of cable? the computer isn't connected using a usb cable is it?

    my pc is connect from the router with a usb and the wii from the router with an ethernet cable into the lan adaptor
    and yes i think my wii is using the same ip address but when i put in a custom one like it told me on the nintendo site (using command prompt on my pc to get its ip adress and adding 10 to it) it wouldnt connect
    i did everything it said but i still didnt connect so i gave up and used auto ip and it connected
    also i dont know how i get to the router setup

    What is the ip address that your pc was using? What is the name on the router? Does it have space to plug in two network cables? (ones like the one the wii is using.)

    The wii is using the auto ip address thing it has so it is using the same ip address as my pc (which works + i dont want to give out my ip adress if poss)
    The router is a motorola surfboard and it has one ethernet port (used by the wii) and another one (dunno the name, it square-ish ans thicker than a usb) the has a wire with a usb on the other end that goes into the pc.

    Do a google search Motorola Surfboard Modem and you will find that it is a cable "MODEM". this is your problem. You defintly need a router.
