    I have the 360 connection thing installed on my laptop cause my friend brought his 360 and we wanted to listen to my music on my surround sound. The next day after my friend left I was playing on my laptop and checked the Everybody Votes Channel. The moment I connected to the internet on the Vote Channel a window opened on my laptop reading "A New Xbox 360 has been detected." The first thing I thought was "OMG WHAR IS TEH 360?!?!?"

    I searched my house hand had no luck. So then I realized that my silly laptop has mistook my Wii for a 360.

    I am kinda wondering if I can some how interact with my Wii through my laptop. That would be the cat's pajamas.

    My laptop randomly came up saying that the other day before I even had my Wii. I checked my wireless router log and didnt see a thing connecting other than myself so I really have no idea what the deal was. The lappy might just be a ree-tee

    you could have just been getting linked from someone in the nearby area. like when i go out to my relatives house with my DS, and want to get online, i tell it to search for access points and it often brings up a list of 10 or so connections and I just pick one.

    Maybe someone is doing that to you with their 360?

    I don't live in a big city and my router only reaches about 400 feet. So I am kinda ruling out the possibility of it being another 360.
