    Ok. I purchased the USB wifi adaptor this morning. Got home and when halfway through it said Internet Sharing Error (6). I have read the post below about going onto your internet options and ticking all the boxes which i have done. I have tried again but still it comes up. What do i need to do?

    I have Windows Vista so naturally i went onto the nintendo website and downloaded v1.06.

    Someone please help :(

    Get a wireless router. The price difference between the USB wifi adapter and a wireless router is not worth the additional headache of setting it up. Plus with a router, your computer doesn't have to be on for the Wii (or anything else) to get online. And it'll be faster.

    I agree with sremick. Routers aren't that expensive anymore.

    The USB Connector has had issues with Vista since it was released. You're better off using XP.

    Actually, I can do you up one even better:

    "________________ has had issues with Vista since it was released. You're better off using XP." (Fill in the blank with just about anything)

    Or you could just not run Windows. ;)

    Lol, good call. Vista is terrible. Not very user-friendly.

    _Try reinstalling, but delete all the folders and applications it brings. After you've done that it should work, well it did for me anyways.

    +1, I deal with this all the time at work, people complain about how everything stops working as soon as microsoft has a mood swing AKA new release.

    Once you go Mac, you never go back.
