Very angering story.. somone help me! (with the nintendo LAN adaptor)
ok so just got a new Nintendo LAN adaptor today.. got an error code saying i couldnt get on to the interne. ok, so i look online and do what it says.. nothing worked. so i called the nintendo support number. the first guy was helping me do stuff thought it was gonna work, but nothing happened. called another person, told me to get a callback from a special tech. person, but im not 18 and i didnt have a parent around so they told me to call back when there was a parent around. my parents came home, called the number back asked to get a callback, and the person tells me that wont be neccesary, and there was something wrong with my LAN adaptor, EVEN THO no one else said there was and i had owned one perviously that got the same error codes but i took that one bak because it was datel and not nintendo's. so now they are sending me a new one, even tho its probably not gonna do any good!!! so now i have to wait even longer for a new one.. thats gonna prolly give me the same results!! (i have high speed internet(RR), im connected directly to my modem, ive tried recycling the modem 3 times, tried all the different setting up techniques, NOTHING WORKED!!) please if someone can help me.. do so im begging you, tell me ow you got your Nintendo LAN adaptor (yes its the grey one with the logo on it) to work.
it depends on the internet provider. here's some reading for you. once you get a router, pay attention to the "Finding the MAC address of a PC's network interface" and the "Cloning a MAC address into the WAN port of a router" sections http://homepage.ntlworld.com/robin.d...s/macaddr.html
it was in the first link. it doesnt really matter Mac or PC.
