    My PC runs on VISTA....

    Officail USB Connector - INCONPATIBLE
    Datel Wifi Max - Garbage on any system, even worse on VISTA (cannot change ANY settings whatsoever)

    Someone, anyone, suggest a wifi port device i can use with my wii that meets the criteria:

    1. Compatible with Windows VISTA
    2. Not rediculously expensive, somewhere near the price of the official.
    3. WORKS

    If i annoyed anyone with this post i apoligise, irritation is not the purpose, this is a cry for help.

    EDIT: Another option would be to assist me in getting WiFiMax to work, either by instruction or directiong me to instruction. My efforts at this have been in vain.

    Honestly, a WLAN router is your best bet. I have that router (version 5.0) and have not had a single problem that putting the Wii into the DMZ didn't fix.

    I placed this same question in one of the other threads. It seems that the new software only works with the 32-bit Vista and not the 64-bit. Anyone get it to work with Vista 64-bit?

    I just got off the phone with the Nintendo wifi hotline. 64-bit versions of XP and Vista are not compatible with the wifi connector. The newest version of software, 1.06, will only work with 32-bit versions of XP or Vista. Argh!!!!

    Heh, i cant even get thru to them.


    Anyway, ive spent the last few hours screwing around with my pc setting and the official nintendo usb connector, and i actually managed to get it installed. (2.5 hours trying to download version 1.06 alone, but apparently i got the 32bit)

    But now, of course, i get an error message.

    Error code: 106070
    There is a problem with the WiiConnect24 service, please try again later.

    And guess what? the online support doesnt recognise that code.

    Can anyone help me with that?

    EDIT: My DS connects like a charm, but not so my Wii.
