    stupid but quick question

    after looking thro the connect24 settings - mine is set to on but further down the listings it mentions an LED light (off dim bright) which is have never seen before

    so the question is, is there a way of SEEING that you're connected to connect24 without going thro the options to check? my wii is currently on standby (power = orange) and i left connect24 on with my mii on travel (still havent figured out the mii thing :p) but i cant see how u know if its online or not

    If you have the settings configured to have WiiConnect24 on, that means it is on. That is the only way to know if you want to check randomly yourself. When you recieve an update, e-mail, or something of that nature, your Wii will start to glow via the blue LED IF you have that option turned on in the settings. Try sending an e-mail to your Wii e-mail address and see if it glows.

    When the unit is off, the power LED will be yellow if WiiConnect24 is on. It will be red if it is off. You can manually turn WiiConnect24 off by holding down the power button for 3 seconds.

    To send a mail to your Wii, the person that is sending you the mail must be registered in the Wii's address book.

    Since i have my Wii connected through my DS USB adapter, i get a little balloon pop-up in my system tray saying that a user has connected to the network.

    And yes I've got the right settings.

    We're talking about the power button's LED, not the slot light.

    All you have to do is add an email address to your Wii address book and the Wii automatically sends an email confirmation to that address. You can then send email to the Wii from that device.

    Note that you can not send email to the Wii unless the email address of the sender is in the address book of the Wii.
