Alright dudes, I need some comprehensive help before I bash my Wii into oblivion. I'm gonna give 5 paypal dollars to the person that kills my woes for me. Not a lot of money, but hey, it's something, right?
Now, before I get to the matters at hand, I'm just gonna say that I've spent the past 3 hours reading and tweaking both my desktop and the USB Wifi Dongle. So before anyone tells me to read or to search other threads, just don't reply if you feel that's something you must say. I'm not as computer savvy or anything as a lot of you are, so yeah.
Well, I have this: http://cgi.ebay.com/WiFi-Wireless-USB-Lan-Adapter-Link-for-PSP-NDS PS3-Wii_W0QQitemZ110436153077QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Def aultDomain_0?hash=item19b681f6f5
I'm assuming that it's pretty generic, considering it has no manufacturer information whatsoever. All I know is it's a Ralink Wifi Dongle, and that I installed the drivers for the RT2070 product, which is what I'm figuring it is. I have a desktop computer that is wirelessly connected to the internet, and I'm wanting to connect my Wii to the dongle using that existing wireless connection. So far, no good. I can connect to other modems around me with the dongle, but I cannot connect to or even see my own on the dongle to transmit the signal to my Wii. I was under the impression that I would be able to do this with a WiFi dongle.
Every now and then I can see my actual wireless connection on my Wii with a red lock next to it. I go to enter the WEP, it takes it, and then when I do the internet connection test... Nada. It gives me some error code. So I mess around with the Rasystems program, right? I make a profile with my connection, turn it into an adhoc, and enter the WEP. Well, I activate it, but it doesn't connect. The dongle is not seeing my actual wireless connection at all. Oh yeah, did I mention that I can have two different wireless connections while it's plugged in and on? Mine and the neighbors. I've tried it both connected to my neighbors and not connected to my neighbors in more than one way, and it doesn't make a difference.
Anyways, when I turn it into an adhoc, I can constantly see my connection on the Wii, with a green bar over the lock. The Dongle's green light also blinks repeatedly. Every now and then I can also simultaneously see a clone of my connection on the Wii, red bar style. So I try to connect to the green one, I enter the WEP, it takes it. I try to do the internet connection test, and it fails. It's still progress though, but now I'm pretty much at a dead end and stumped on what to do.
I found this thread while searching, and I'm pretty sure that it might be able to help me get this done: http://forum.gbadev.org/viewtopic.ph...3d093ce251d7c3
Problem is, I have no clue in how to find a PID or VID. Everything else I think I can do. So yeah, like I said, 5 bucks to the person who can solve my problem for me. I know there's quite a few threads with my same problem, but none of them seem to have been resolved. Don't jump at once now. Peace.
