Something decided to go haywire with my Nintendo WiFi USB connector and I haven't been able to get it back online since. I was also sick and tired of the constant pop up saying a user had connected whenever the Wii checked online in off mode (seemed to check the net every 15-20mins).
Now this is what I have done. A friend had given me a Wireless Ralink Technology 802.11g PCI card a while ago and I have installed it on my Vista x64 machine. Vista found and installed drivers via Windows Update. It is my hope to connect the Wii to it and get a shared net connection. In my 1st and only attempt I made an ad-hoc connection, selected WEP for security and gave it a password, then selected internet sharing.
I went to the Wii and had it search for the device. It found it and I was able to put the password in. Now it just fails when trying to do the connection test and mentions to check the SSID.
Tips for non IT morons appreciated
