Connecting my Wii to the internet through my computer

What I want to do is to connect my Wii and my DS both up to the internet using my computer as the access point.

I have the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, my Wii, two DS’s, my computer, and a dialup connection.

I have found places that say that it is possible to connect up using dialup and even give a tutorial on how to do it.

The problem is that I get to a certain point and can not continue.

The point is when it states to allow other network users to connect through this computers Internet connection. Basically the Internet Connection Sharing options. The problem is that I do not have those options available and that confuses me.

In the advanced tab for my dialup properties it only has a box titled “Windows Firewall” and a button for settings. There is no section there at all concerning ICS.

Am I missing something or am I just not able to do this? I am really confused as every place I have checked says I can but I need to allow ICS before I can continue.

Thanks for any help in this matter

Have you looked for ICS under "Services"? it may not be enabled. Not sure if you'll be able to use both devices at once though.

It's easier and less confusing if you keep it all in one thread. :)

Please continue here:

I'll close this one.
