How close is it to the wii, it has a very short range.

at his house its across the entire house, and works perfectly, and were using the compueter in the next room. when we test the connection, itll say 3 bars, but as soon as the connection test is over, itll say couldnt connect to the interent, but the internet is working fine, as you can see.

If you have a firewall enabled on the PC, make sure that you turn it off or give the wifi permission to connect to the internet.

Update the drivers on your computer for the USB wi-fi thing. that fixed it for me. if not check your firewall settings

same thing happened to me...i dont know what to tell you. Because if I typed in the error code on www.nintendowifi.com it said that I need to change the channel of my router. And I cant really change the channel on my router because I DONT HAVE ONE! lol. So yeah, sorry, I cant help you.

If your comp has an improper reset that can cause a problem. Delete the internet connection settings in the wii. Uninstall the wifi usb connector as the instructions dictate.

Run the latest version of the wifi usb connector software. Prior versions do not work with the wii. Follow the directions.

Go to your wii then have it search for the wifi usb connector then follow the prompts. Make sure you disable windows firewall and temp disable any other firewalls.

Once the connection is occuring the firewall will let the wii and usb connector communicate.

If it is a wii error code you have to go to the nintendo wii support site. Nintendowifi.com is just the ubs error codes.

Also what isp are you using to connect? Certain ones will not work with the usb connector unless you do a workaround.
