Topic: Wi-Fi connector problems

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?

That's a good choice

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.
