    Question: can you create an ad-hoc network with a wii?

    I was wondering if I got the Ethernet adapter, could I then send out wifi through the wii like you can with a mac? (I know there are other options to make this set up work, I just want to know if this is a possibility)

    Also, can you go about "sharing" the hard drive via a network while plugged into the wii, say, so I can access music and movies on the hard drive that's plugged into the wii on my computer?

    Thanks

    ccooluke:

    Stop by the Introductions section of the site and make a quick "hello" post if ya can. You'll get a personal greeting from a staff member (and others), along with excellent starter links on our more popular guides. The previous user is correct in his assessment, however --- just for confirmation.

    first part: no

    second part:
    you can make it the other way round. store music/videos on your pc and access them by sharing the folder. you can use WiiMC to play stuff from that folder.
    harddrive has more space for games.

    <--suggestions helped? press Thanks
