    Wifi & Vista

    Hi I want to get my wii online but I have a laptop running vista & heard the wireless adapters don't work with vista? Any suggestions would be great my actual wireless router is 2 floors away from where I have my wii. Cheers

    Some people say they work on Vista, some people say they don't. I really don't know the true answer...

    It is strongly recommended to use a wireless router over a usb adapter so you don't always have to keep your computer running. If the connection is strong enough, you should use the wireless router. If not, you should move it closer.
    All my online info is on my profile including Wii number, game friend codes, etc.

    Well, you could buy a router, which would bypass the whole OS problem anyway.

    Also, if you're using the official Nintendo USB connector, go upgrade the software, as it now runs on vista too. Believe me, I'm using a laptop with Vista, and my Nintendo Dongle works fine.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Yeah. Vista's fine.

    You'll need to download the latest firmware though from the site.
    Don't bother with the disc it comes with.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.
