|Ok, so here is the situation:|
I'm at school and my dorm has only a wireless connection to the internet. The wireless network requires authentication (school username/password). I would like to connect our Nintendo Wii to the internet but because of the authentication requirement and lack of a browser on the Wii, I cannot do so directly.
The method I'm currently trying to employ is such:
My desktop PC has two wireless cards installed. One is connected to the school network, and I hope to use the other to 'pass the internet connection along' to the Wii. I have tried creating an ad hoc network called 'wii' and the Wii is able to see it. However, when I try to connect, the Wii tells me that it cannot find an access point. Of course, this makes sense since ad hoc networks don't use access points. So, my question is this - is there some way to configure the Wii so that it can connect to the ad hoc network, OR is there a way to use the second wireless adapter to act as an access point for the Wii to find and connect to? If I can do that, will I be able to share the internet connection from the first wireless card for the other?
Any help is greatly appreciated, and any other suggestions for how to connect the Wii to the internet will also be appreciated.
