I'm afraid I already know the answer to my question, but my husband and I are trying to use our Wii for Netflix while we are staying in a hotel for an extended period of time. We are running in to problems with the firewall with both wired and wireless connections, and because we are at a hotel we have no access to fiddle with the settings. Are we just totally out of luck on being able to connect while we are here? Thanks in advance for any help!
If a firewall is blocking your Internet connection and you are unable to disable it, then yes, you will unfortunately be unable to connect your Nintendo Wii to the web. You could always try asking the hotel staff about it, but I don't think they can disable the firewall for just one customer -- it'd be disabled for the entire network.
