I get you. It is saved on your comp. cache. Just delete viewing history on your computer then download C Cleaner off the internet. Run it and it will wipe your hard drive. No one except the FBI will ever know. I learned this on my own.

No it's not, the Wii doesn't share a history file with any computer.

There's no way to clear the Wii's history right now

How do you know that? When I run my C Cleaner it tells what has been deleted and I see where I went on my Wii's browser and where I went on my computers browser. It is being saved to your computers online cache. Thats how it saves passwords and screennames.

Because you're wrong

It does not save anything to the computer.
The Wii doesn't communicate at all to any computer, where did you ever think that?

Just because two things share the same internet connection doesn't mean they share the info going back and forth too.
You can use the Wii even if you don't have a computer, it still works the same.

They don't know when you go look but they can come to your house if like you murdered somebody and use sensitive equipment to extract data off your hard drive.

I don't know about you but my router creates a triangle of wires that first stops at my computer and that is where the Wii gets the internet. Through the computer not directly through the internet. Again how do you save password and screennames and favorites. It doesn't get stored on the Wii  itself. It has to be saved somewhere and that is the cache in your computer because you can't save things on your direct internet conection. If you tried saving favorites on only an internet conection it wouldn't work.

You wouldn't be able to see it in say a cookie on internet explorer but if someone wanted to see what you have in your cache they could download an application off the computer and pull it out. Then you are exposed. So you have to download the C Cleaner or another application of the same nature, then delete your history in internet settings, then run the cleaner, then your safe from everyone but the FBI.

No it doesn't have a history, and that's a bit short-sighted of Nintendo. But then again, it may be a cunning business maneuver, they'll be selling more Wiimotes due to clogged speakers and gunked up buttons. Please be careful.

No, it does not save anything on your computer. If you don't believe me, get online with the Wii when your computer is turned off... it still works the same. Actually, you can disco the computer and it should still work.

First off, saving favorites is not the same as history.  Secondly, saving passwords and screennames is not the same as history.  History is just where you've browsed with the internet.  Cookies are what save passwords and screennames.  The favorites are saved on the Wii.  It is most likely that the Wii saves cookies also. It could even save the history, but the Opera Browser, being only a trial, just does not give you any way of viewing the history or deleting the history and cookies.

As many people have said, the wii never communicates with your computer! I have never once authorized incoming/outgoing traffic in my firewall for my Wii while I browse the net on it! Even if the network cable goes through your computer, the traffic just goes through your network card, it does not allow the wii to store information.
Also, if your theory was correct, what happens when you have 2 pcs on the network? How does the Wii choose where to place it's history?

No, this just shows that the both of you have no idea how a network works.  Besides the fact that when you have a cable modem, just using this as an example, you have the internet come in through that.  If you are gonna have a network, a line is run from the modem to the router.  Then you either run ethernet cable to all the computers or have a wireless router where you can do the former or have a wireless connection also. 

Having Wi-Fi has nothing to do with a computer.  You can have Wi -Fi and not have a computer at all.  History is kept on the machine that was used.  Therefore, if there is any history kept on the Wii, than we are most likely just not able to view it at this point in time.  Seeing as the the internet browser right now is only a trial, it makes sense that that is not yet available.

You're missing what's been said. A PC CAN keep history of ALL DNS/IP actions that the Wii or ANYTHING comuticating with it or a network. Ever been to a Library? Their main PC that's connected there is keeping track of ALL the data being sent to the other PCs, allowing history viewing and blocking access to certin IPs. If a person has their PC off or no PC on their network, well then they have no viewable caches history to access anywhere.

Hmm.... lemme see if i get this right.

The pages you wiew on your wii is saved on your computer, so that would mean that it i turn my comp off or if i do not have a computer i can not use the Wii opera browser att all?

And if the computer saves all records of what other ppl have been looking at through the router they share, then i can see my brothers and fathers browsing history on my computer?

Sounds kinda odd to me but.... who knows, maybe they send the data to Nintendo and they look how many used it to look at porn and then send you a extorsion mail telling you that they want 1000usd or they will tell you mommy? :idea:

Yes, you can view everything of their's but you must know HOW to get to this stuff. Not everyone knows this stuff. When I was over at a friend's, someone else was over there with a laptop and he was accessing all the stuff stored on my friend's family computer. Files, History, everything hooked to the WiFi and Router, he saw it and told us so that he could help so that weirds wouldn't have easy access to it anymore.

maybe he uses the wifi usb adapter, that would save to the comp. but using a wireless router save to a comp because the comp doesn't have to be on to use it
