I bought my usb connector (nintendo) yesturday and i have the software set up and everything. The problem is when I do my test connection, it fails. The main wifi site said i should change my router's IP address. How do I do that?:neutral: Help please!

You have a router? Is that not wireless already?

i had the same problem with my WiFi Adapter. but to solve the problem, just try holding your DS right next to it. thats what i had to do with mine. should work, though you may have to try a couple few times.

Still no progress unfortunatly. I'm so terrible at technical stuff but is there anyway to see my routers settings, change the router's IP to the # the Nintendo Wifi website says it has to be at?

I'm like 100% sure that this is the problem since I went through all the possible problems and fixed them.

I heard you need WINDOWS for the USB Connector.

thats something else. what are you running for an Operating System? if its something other than Windows XP, then its likely it won't work.

You need Windows in order to use it.
Also, your computer's Firewall may be keeping the USB Connector from working.
And make sure the USB Connector's green light is flashing - this will indicate that you are connected to the internet.

Yup, I have windows xp. You think I should keep my firewall off until I'm done my test connection. I know you turn it off when you download the wi-fi icon. Maybe I'll try keeping it off until I finish my test connection.

Thanks for the help everybody, I didnt think this would be so hard.
