Question about Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector for DS/ Wii

1 Answer

I have a Nintendo Wifi USB connector and it doesn't send internet to the Wii. The user name "NINTENDO" appears but at the bottom it says "There are no connected users". When I try to locate the device with the Wii, it finds it in seconds, and the Internet on the PC is fine, plus I set the main network to share. I have Windows Vista Home premium installed and the WiFi USB connector Registration tool is up to date (Version 1.07).

Im using Wi-Fi USB connector for internet connetion, but it keep show up error code 52140, not able to connet... even my USB connetor is showing the running man mark on my computer?


Try this..

1. On the computer with the USB connector, get a command line (start -> run -> cmd) and type the command ipconfig /all
2. Normally it will show multiple DNS addresses.
3. Now connect your Nintendo USB connector.
4. Go to your network connections (usually under control panel) and right click the USB devices.
5. Under the general tab, look for Internet TCP/IP, highlight it and click properties.
6. Click Use the following DNS Addresses and enter the two addresses from step#2.

You need to go into Wii settings (use the home button on the Wiimote) and enter your wireless key. You should be able to find this key (a string of letters and numbers) on the bottom of your wireless router.
