    can someone help, i had SMB working before a year or two ago with my wii but at some stage i upgraded OS X, it stopped working and i never got it back again. now im trying again in a bid to save buying a WD Live....

    right my mac is on my home network, with 2 internal ip address is my ethernet connection to my routers is my wifi connection.

    my mac is called mac.
    it runs 10.8.1

    firewall is off

    under sharing, i have file sharing ticketx, and in there, i have the usb drive, connected to my mac, that i want to connect to, has usesrs everyone read and write. also i have my username, call it username read & write

    it says windows sharing:On. windows can access shared folder on this computer, and administrators all volumes, at mac.home

    if i click on options, share files and folders using AFP is off
    share files and folders using SMB (windows) is on and both the admin account and username account are ticked.

    on the wii, in WIiMC, under settings - Network
    i can see mac.home
    when i click on it, i have
    display name mac.home
    share IP
    share name - ive tried mac, ive tried FIles, /files , /Files/, left it blank
    filled in username as username and added the password

    whatever i do i get
    failed to connect to network share
