    Wii behind a proxy server

    Hi,
    I'm trying to use my wireless to connect to my wii. The trouble is i'm in a dorm who use a proxy server, so I normally have to put my username and password into the web browser (in the proxy settings). The wii doesn't have any options for configuring to work behind a proxy, so what should i do?! I really want my wii online :-(

    it's too much of a hassle to go buy a usb adapter for the price of a router?

    And I don't know I haven't had to at any point reference the manual.

    but i have to buy the adapter over the internet and i a] don't have a credit card and b] didn't want to wait. Woohoo, you haven't had to reference the manual. Lucky you. But because i need to enter a proxy address it makes everything difficult.

    I'm sure you have a gaming store somewhere within an hour or two.

    Oh, well if I knew you were an aussie that would have cleared that up a few posts back. There really isn't much you can do other than order one online.

    well thanks for your help. I haven't had any luck yet. I don't understand why the wii doesn't have options for a proxy server?!

    _THE_ answer

    If you are the one owning the accesspoint or if the proxy is after the AP then you could install a router software on your PC and tell the Wii to route the trafic thru your computer.
