Ok, this is really getting on my nerves. I often have problems getting online with my wii when i use the Wi-Fi USB connector but now it just won't work.

A few things I should probably mention
1: I'm running it off a eMachines E520 (Not Sure if that make a difference) laptop with has Windows Vista home basic edition installed onto it
2: I installed the Registration tool using the 1.07 update
3: When I attempt to connect, it always shows through the registration software that there is a strong connection but I always get that error message you get when the Wii doesn't connect properly when I do a connection test
4: My internet provider is Sky

Any help would be greatly appreciated

This happened to me too. I figured out that it was my computers security system that was disrupting it. I could only get it to work when my security system was disabled. Do you have a security system on your computer?

I've got the usual Anti-Virus protection stuff, but it's worked before even with that running.

Did you turn your firewall off?

Open your Network Connections folder (may have to go through Network and Sharing Center to get to it).
Plug in your Wi-Fi connection dongle. You should see something else show up in addition to your actual internet connection.
Highlight the new thing that showed up and your actual internet connection. Right-click, and choose to bridge the two.

This is what fixed my connection a couple weeks ago when the same thing happened to me (running Windows Vista Home Premium on an HP laptop). I had been using it with no problems for months beforehand, and all of a sudden it decided to stop working until I bridged the connections. I checked the Nintendo FAQ and enabled every single port it said to have open through the router interface, and nothing seemed to be working until i tried bridging everything. I've had weird bridge-y problems with other laptops and internets before too, so i should've known to try that first, to be honest.

I have one for the house but for some strange reason my Wii won't connect to this one.
