Hi guys and girls,

I am ashamed to say that I am a complete muppet when it comes to computers and could do with your help!

I am living in Dubai at the moment and want to play Wii against my friends back home, but can't as a lot is blocked by the government here!

I connect to the internet on my laptop via a VPN which allows me free reign with what I view. IS THERE ANY WAY TO CONNECT MY WII TO MY LAPTOP AND ACCESS THE INTERNET THROUGH THAT AND, THEREFORE, THROUGH THE VPN??

As I said, I am pretty poor with computers so help in very basic speak would be amazing!

Thanks so much to you all in advance!

Ed

p.s. I have 2 laptops, one running XP and one running Vista (eugh!)

I got quick and really fast Wii help when I called the Nintendo Support line for Wii only. They walked me through the steps so I think you would get a better and faster answer going to their web site online.

Thanks Ron, appreciate the tip.

Did they help you with this specific question or was yours on another topic?

Cheers,

Ed

I was setting up my sister's Wii on the Internet, but none of the IPs I was using was working. Called them and they suggested to keep on going. I was on the right track, just the wrong numbers. LOL Yours may be a little different, but they should be able to suggest what you need to input when you are setting up the Internet connection inside the Wii Setup Console.
