Question about Nintendo DS Console
Trying to connect Ninentendo DS using WiFi USB connector on my PC. Works when I shut off my McAfee firewall but will not work when Firewall is on no matter how low my security level is. The program has full access according to the McAfee program on my computer. Is there something else I must do in the McAfee program to allow access. It works if I only use Windows XP Firewall but I am not sure how secure this is.
The Windows XP Service Pack 2 firewall is actually Norton Personal firewall re-branded with a simplified front end, Microsoft couldn't get they're own firewall to do the job properly (got to love MS quality!). As such he Windows XP Service Pack 2 firewall will offer you as much protection as any other commercial firewall out there. Your Nintendo WiFi USB adapter uses soft AP, in other words it uses a software WiFi Access Point to connect your DS to the web, as well as being able to make a connection to the web it also needs to make a connection between your PC and the DS and you need to think of these as separate networks because that is in-fact what they are. Make sure the second network is allowed in your McAfee firewall, that the Nintendo software is allowed to act as a server and that it is allowed to serve DHCP, in other words that it is allowed to assign IP addresses. The McAfee User Interface is about as friendly, intuitive and helpful as a dead squirrel so this may be a good time to do a bit of reading on ts.mcafeehelp.com
