Ian, dunno if you fixed the ip problem with your Wii, but try adding one number to the last four digits of the ip address to the is your ip, change to so the wii one is slighlty different. dunno if it works but thats what i was told to do for my DS.

Adding the extra 0s is okay for the address. It will work the same with or without them.

Great tip. I had gotten into the advanced settings but completely overlooked the whole right scrolling to the additional settings. Thank you!!
