    Hello Buddies,

    I bought a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector 2 Weeks ago, but till now i still cannot connect my Wii with the internet.I did all i should,but end up with ERROR 52140.

    The USB Connector can detect the wii..and shows "connected" with full bar in the registration tool.

    I connect my wii with wireless connection>>nintendo wi-fi usb>>allow usb connector to connect>>but some out with ERROR 52140

    I'm not sure whether my firewall is on or not?But anyway my Norton Antivirus is expired,so i assume its not affecting.

    Buddies please help.I really want to online.

    What should i do.

    NORTON is a fail proceed to get a better Antivirus lol. Get AVG or something better dude.

    Anyways try messing about with your Internet settings:

    To shut off your Firewall [Not recomended but it's worth a try]

    START > Control Pannel > Windows Firewall > Off

    I'm getting the same 52140. I had Norton and I unistalled it and it still didn't work. Turned Windows Firewall off and still nothing. Unistalled it and reinstalled it and nothing. I then though my PC was incompatible with the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector so I took the compatibility test but my PC is compatible. So if you ever fix the problem let me know.

    I had the same problem you guys are having. My Wii is now online.
    My solution: bought a router. They are so much more reliable than the USB connector and you don't have to have your computer on when you want to connect to the net on your Wii.
    I still have the USB connector floating around my room somewhere, such a waste of money.

    I had the same setup as you before I got my wireless router, dsl modem connected to desktop with a usb cable, I just didn't realise I had an ethernet port on my computer. You have to plug the modem into the router and then the router into your computer. I was just lucky that my computer had the ethernet port, because my router does not have USB out.
    Once it was all set up, the Wii found my router, I entered in the WEP security settings to my Wii and I was away!
    With regards to your desktop being wireless compatible, it must have either an inbuilt wireless card or an external one. I had a quick look for your computer, and it says that it has an ethernet port, so everything should be pretty sweet for you. (as in, no wireless, but you have the ethernet port so you wont need it to be wireless) Your desktop wont need to be wireless will it? I couldn't imagine lugging an entire computer around.
    If you have any more questions, feel free to pm me. (you wont be able to pm until you have made atleast 10 posts.)

    Yep, that would be basically all that you would need, and maybe an ethernet cable if you are currently using the usb cable to plug your modem into the desktop. Take a look here and see which router works best. I'd recommend the Linksys WRT54G, I havn't had one single problem with mine, works a treat. Depending on cost aswell, but Linksys are usually the best value for money.

    EDIT: The Linksys WRT54G has 4 wired ports at the back where you can have wired connections if you want as well as wireless, I would think this is a standard feature on most wireless routers though.

    Hey.

    Thing is my ADSL modem only have usb out. no ethernet port. This will mean i cant connect the modem to the router, right??

    or am im being dumb, and the modem connects to router with USB and router to desktop with ethernet cable? :)

    man, wish it was easier!

    Hmmmmmm, a modem without an ethernet port, that might be a problem. I've got everything going via ethernet here. What brand of modem is it? You might have lucked out on that one, I'm not sure if you can connect the modem and router via USB, if anyone else out there knows if you can or not, feel free to jump in! If it is not possible, then the only solution would be to buy a modem & router all in the one package, cuts down on space that way to, apart from that, I'm not sure.:(

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help with that.

    I use a wireless network instead of using a usb wi-fi connector.
    It beats the stress of having usb wi-fi errors all the time.

    Sweet - I just bought the D-Link DSL-G604T router/modem

    Installed it, hooked up ethernet and boom WII works straight of the bat with 3 bars connectivity. easy as that!

    WIFI USB is a waste of time then!

    Cheers Guys :thumbsup:
