Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector [RESOLVED]


Does anyone have Comodo working with the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector?

If I shut off Comodo everything works and my Nintendo DS can connect to the network. When I turn Comodo on I receive an error while trying to connect. It’s clearly the firewall but I’m hoping that (unlike Zone Alarm) some settings in Comodo can be configured for me to connect.

Unfortunately I’m not sure what to do next.

Here’s info requested on the ‘Please read before posting’ post:

  • The version of Comodo Firewall Pro Installed

  • Your Internet connection type (dial-up/cable/Direct connection/LAN etc)
    internet connection is cable, my pc is connected to a LAN

  • Operating system and Service Pack Level
    Windows XP SP2 with all up to date patches

  • How you are logging in to the OS (Admin, User)
    local administrator account

  • Other Security applications installed (AV, AS, HIPS etc)
    just McAfee Viruscan, up to date

  • Security related applications which have been removed/disabled before installing CFP.
    none. just re-installed (fresh install) XP about a week ago

  • Security related application which have been removed/disabled after installing CFP.

  • Detail the problem, such as which applications are running when you have the problem.
    I’m trying to get my Nintendo DS to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Network through the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. It’s a small device that plugs into my USB port and allows my Nintendo DS to connect to the internet. I think I’ve read on other forums that’s it’s actually a software access point. While setting up the software it created a connection sharing on my LAN connection. I’m not very good a networks so I don’t know what information you need. If you ask me I’ll try to find it for you. Ok. So the hardware is plugged in (and recognized) and the software (Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector Registration Tool) is running in my system tray. My DS is registered. When I try to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector it works. When it tries a test to access the internet (and thus the Nintendo Wi-Fi Network) it fails. If I shut off Comodo and repeat all of those steps it works perfectly - I’m pretty sure it’s the firewall that’s blocking my attempt to connect externally.

  • Please inform us if you have created any custom rules.
    no custom rules that i’m aware of. Comodo is running with the default settings (because I don’t really understand all of the protocols to configure them manually) i received one alert from Comodo when the Wi-Fi USB Connector was being accessed. I set it to allow and checked the box to remember the setting.

Can anyone help me figure out what setting needs to be configured to get it to work?

Thank you for your patience; I’m new. :frowning:

Oh… I found a tutorial on the forum on how to do it. I swear I searched for Nintendo before posting. Sorry for creating the thread! It can be deleted

Glad you found it! Don’t feel too bad; the search feature has been quirky of late…
