    Lol Vista blows ATM. Should have waited to get it. Soon hopefully they will get all the bugs out. Quick question though what games does it come with? Does still come with the regular minesweeper and pinball?

    yes i had the problem, i used vista just b4 xmas, downloadin version of course, because vista isnt fully loaded yet, it wont work with it, I would not use vista yet till theres a patch out for it.
    But if ya get a wireless router it will cure the problem anyhow

    Did you try to run it under the Windows XP compatible mode? I don't have Vista in front of me, but if you right click on the program icon and go to properties, I think there is a compatibility tab, where you can set the program to be compatible with a previous version of Windows. I am not familiar with the Wii USB WiFi connector, but I am pretty sure you should also be able to manually configure the connection. However, if you are not sure on how to do it, then it is best for you not to touch it.

    Also, if you have an XP disk or image, you can run VMWare or Microsoft VirtualPC and emulate XP on top of Vista, and then use your USB WiFi adapter on the virtual machine. The better way to do things is of course through a standalone WiFi router.

    Yea i had the same problem bro, real bummer ai, had a few compatibility issues wif vista so far so i just sold my wifi adapter nd brought a wireless router. Never fear though. Nintendo is working on software for vista, when it's available you'll be able to get it at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineUSBDownload.jsp
    Hope this helps.
