1. The first thing I tried was to hook on thru my wireless router. It is a Westell versalink model 327w. Here are my problems: When I search for the connection, both the wii and the DS are able to find it, but when they do, there is a locked padlock, signifying that the router is locked with a WEP code. I typed in what I thought to be the WEP code, and it has never worked. I think that it may be because I don't actually know the WEP code, so what I was thinking is that I could just unlock my internet connection. If I were to do that, would that accomplish anything? Would I ruin the internet on my computer? Do I need to change any settings on my computer so that it doesn't try to use a WEP key? If I do, how do I do it?
2. Secondly, I bought one of those Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connectors, and it doesn't work either. Let me rephrase that, it connects to the internet, and it sends out a signal, but the program never fully installs. When I run the the latest program downloaded off the Nintendo website (probably v1.60 or something like that) it works fun, until about 2/3 of the way through when an error message appears that says "Internet Connection Sharing Error". What do I do about that? I have looked on the the interweb, and anything that shows up, even on the Nintendo website is in a language I don't understand.
Please help me out here. I am not stupid, so I can understand some techno-babble, but I am not entirely versed in the complexities of its speech, so please answer this question in layman's terms.
Whoever helps me connect to the internet, I will be eternally in your debt.
Thanks in advance.
