    Heya :)
    I'm Atrias as you might have read :p
    The current reason I signed up was to find help to connect my wii to the net, using the official nintendo usb connector used for the DS.

    Hopefully, I will also find more topics of interest and hope to as well be pleasant and useful to the community :)

    Hey....

    - Plug in your USB adapter (To your PC) and install any Software you may get with it

    - Keep it plugged in and your PC switched on

    - Go on your Wii and go to the Settings (Wii button, Botton left, Wii Menu)

    - Go to Internet and Connection Settings

    - Go to Connection 1, Click Wireless. Let it search and click your USB (It will locate it easily)

    - Test the connection and your all set

    xD Have Fun Wiing - Wanting to say that for a long time

    I've done all that. But for some reason it didnt want to pass the connection test. It keeps saying it is unable to connect to the internet, yet I am sure i've done everything correctly on my pc.
    In fact, when i try to connect, the registrator shows my wii's nickname. I've granted permission for it to connect, and when i try the connection test, everything on the comp seems fine (a little man is shown running, the signal is green), but alas...it just refuses :(


    EDIT: I've read manuals, forums and everything, yet I dont seem to see where my problem is. Theoretically it should have worked ><'

    It may be because of some interference.... are there any cordless phones, LAN, microwaves (lol) in use anywhere near where your USB is plugged in?

    ok should have read my thread, do not put it on a metal surface or in a horisontal usb port it cant lay on its back, use the included cable and put it on is side (so you can see front and back) on a wooden surface or a book it will work, try it come back and shower me with praise lol

    I'll do it once I get back to where my wii is ^^;
    That said, the usb is near a load of electrical device, would they hamper the signal?
    And yes its on a wooden surface...

    Also sorry for missing your thread :'( Guess I didn't spend enough time looking...
