    If you aren't using the official nintendo one, then you sure the LAN adapter you have is even compatible with the wii??? I might just be no good with the wii

    See if you can get a refund. I had to return my Datel WifiMax. I bought a Nintendo one and it worked fine. Datel products seem to be terrible.

    You can't just use any damn lan adapter. These adapters DO require drivers, and Nintendo only has drivers for a certain brand of chipset.

    Basically you are screwed because your stupid, and didn't do your research.

    This is because neither your laptop's ethernet port or the wii lan adapter can do auto MDX. You need a cross-over cable to make that work right.

    Yeah, the datel lan adapter appears to be a piece of garbage. I got one and it utterly fails to work. Sniffing the connection reveals that it is ignoring every packet that it receives. When it requests an IP address via dhcp and receives one it just waits a second and then sends another request. Does this a few times and then appears to tell the Wii that it never received an address. When I assigned a static IP it sends an ARP packet requesting a route to the gateway and then ignores that as well. Resends a few ARP requests and then quits out on self test. I can't think of how such a totally worthless product could be sold.
