    I have a netgear that got 2 stars when i looked it up online to see how it connects to the Ds which is going to be the same for the Wii. SO i planned on buying the Nintendo USB, but when i took the test to see if it would work with my computer it failed because of firewalls and some other stuff. The only way for that to work is if i was able to disable all of that stuff which i am not sure if its possible at all. What should i do?

    thats what i want but the test failed when i tested my comp to see if the usb would work with it. I found the usb on the nintendo site..... It might not work b/c of safety and antiviruses stuff and firewalls.. Help!

    I play with my Firewall on and never had any problems, just had to give the program full use of the internet and it works fine.

    WHen i did Try Test, it said Test Failed Here is what it says ::::

    The test failed NAT negotiation.
    This typically means a device, like a firewall, is filtering traffic in your network. The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector likely will not work in your existing environment.

    how do i fix that and still have my computer safe so viruses cant just go into my comp???

    Well while this may sound harsh to some people you don't actually need a firewall if you're not a complete tard. Basically all firewalls do is stop trojan programs you may have downloaded without realising it from operating, most firewalls allow you to choose to let certain programs connect to the net (like games, updaters e.g. the World of Warcraft updater). Now if you haven't been an idiot and you have an up to date virus scanner and actually SCAN what you download instead of just opening it then you're system should be fine.

    Just have your pc on with the firewall disabled and don't broswe the net on it or download etc. Now you may have trouble if your firewall is built into your router instead of your pc and there's no option to disable it, a lot of routers allow you to specify computers on your network free access or to allow access through certain ports (ports are like doors into your computer).

    Does the USB dongle thing say what it actually needs to run? Any ports (e.g. just a number normally 4-5 digits long)

    If I've made any errors here someone correct me.

    Also I believe you can buy a lead that plugs into the USB port of the Wii and has an ethernet connector at the other end which can plug directly into your router.
