  • I don't know what the Wii does to use your Internet connection on the PC, but if it uses an application, that application probably needs to be granted access through the firewall. Additionally, you may want to go to the advanced section of the firewall settings and enable Internet Connection Sharing. If that doesn't work, I'd contact support - they may know the answer from working with others on this.

    If it fails to validate your subscription, select the option that you are using a trial or beta copy and you can proceed to email support without validation once you've signed in.

    I Have even ajusted the firewall to allow ICS, and still has not resolved the problem. I cannot connect to the internet through the WI-Fi plugged into the USB port without truning the firewall off
