wii won't detect WAP when either USB slot is used, anyone knows why?
I've just set up a wireless router, and the wii detects the WAP, and I could surf the net with it.
But when the USB slot is plugged with a hard drive, it won't connect online at all, so I tried the connection test on the wii setting, it failed.
With the USB hard drive still attached, I made a new wireless connection, chose search for WAP, it doesn't detect it.
So, I tried unplugging the USB hard drive and tried detecting WAP did the wireless connection test, and it works.
To sum it up, when either USB slot is plugged with a device, the wii loses its ability to detect WAP and cant go online.
Anyone has experience on this? I couldn't seem to find any answer around.
thank you in advanced!

Im assuming you had used a wired connection in the past? If so, make sure you go back into the settings and clear any existing wired configurations.
