    Ok, the Wii is supposed to stay connected on Wifi even when it's off, but I check my USB Wifi connector panel and its not connected most of the time. It may connect from time to time but it'll go back of after about a minute. What's wrong?

    tbh, even though my Wii is set for 24/7 connection to my router, i actually
    turn off my modem and router every evening.

    i'd have thought that what you are seeing is normal.....there's absolutely no
    need for the Wii to have constant wifi connectivity. i'd have thought that the
    Wii's wifi chip goes to "sleep" until communication is required.

    Also, You Need Your Firewall Off 24/7 To Keep The Wi-Fi Connector Usable. :D

    But Don't Do That... >_>

    why would you need to do that?

    surely, if the Wii has internet access with the firewall on, why the
    need to turn it off?

    just configure it correctly.

    Well Normally, And In The Connector Instructions, It Tells You To Turn It Off.
