    You don't need Nintendo WFC or WiiConnect24. Those are only for Nintendo services.

    Just set up your networking in the Wii settings and download the controllers through Nintendont's UI.

    Hello, I need help.. Thrustmaster T-Wireless should work, but when I connect it to the Wii, it just start acting like the movement cross is held up. Any suggestion? Thx.
