    Okay.. I bought myself a Nintendo USB wifi dongle a good while back.
    Upon getting it home, I installed it no problem and enjoyed myself some wifi gaming.

    But after a while, I wanted to convert it to a SoftAP, as explained here.
    Well, I couldn't get it set up that way.. So I removed the drivers and software, and reinstalled the "official" drivers that came on the Nintendo disc.
    ..then I figured I'd give the SoftAP setup another go. Didn't work, again.

    Flash forward to now.
    I'm trying to install my connector again, with the "official" drivers.

    Every time during the setup, it gets to connection sharing then spits "Internet Connection Sharing Error (6)" at me.
    I remove the stray driver, unplug the connector and try again with the CD. Same thing happens.

    What's going wrong? [​IMG]

    is the main connection still shared with the old connection #5 maybe, you must unbridge or unshare the old connection to do the new one

    Are the services active? Particularly Internet Connection Sharing?

    There is no connection #5. 6 is the error number, I assume. :/

    And yes, connection sharing is active.

    I had this trouble too and got it fixed. ill try to find you the article

    i think this is it:
    Code:
    First, plug the USB connector into your computer.
    Next insert the disk that came with the connector. Do not run the disk yet!
    You need to go to the start menu on your computer and select 'run'. Select browse and go to the cd you just put in. Open the folder "NintendoWFCReg." Next, open the folder "SoftAP." After that, choose the file "DEVREMOVE.exe". So in the run box it should say E:\NintendoWFCReg\SoftAP\DEVREMOVE.exe. Go ahead and run it.
    
    Next, a message box will appear containing a bunch of question marks. I'm not sure exactly what the options are but you want to choose the "yes", "okay", or "I agree" option. This leads to another similar message with question marks. Do the same thing you did with the last one.
    
    Okay. Everything should be said and done as far as that goes.
    Next, remove the USB connector and restart your computer.
    Now, run the install disk. When prompted to, insert the USB connector and you should be set.
    And make sure that you uninstall it from device manager as well.

    I just tried that, twice.
    Didn't work.

    But, that may be because I didn't remove anything from the device manager.
    ..do you know what the name would be, so I can find it and remove it?

    i think you need to have it plugged in to show up on the device manager

    if that doesnt work, try these steps. i got them from Nintendo Website

    # Uninstall the USB connector through the Device Manager.

    * Make sure you have the USB Connector plugged into your computer.
    * Click the Start button and select Control Panel.
    * Click "System" and select the "Hardware" tab. Choose "Device Manager."
    * Next to "Network Adapters," click the "+" to expand the list.
    * If the Nintendo USB Connector is in the list, right-click it and choose "Uninstall."

    # Perform the DEVREMOV process.

    * Make sure you have the USB Connector plugged into your computer.
    * On your computer, click on the "My Computer" icon (found in the Start menu or sometimes on the desktop), and right click on your CD drive containing the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection Installation CD, and choose 'Explore.'
    * Open "NintendoWFCReg/SoftAP." Within there, double-click the DEVREMOV.exe application.

    During the course of running the DEVREMOV program, you will see three windows pop up successively.

    * The first will have a series of question marks. Click "Yes."
    * The second will have a picture of wires and lights moving on it while the DEVREMOV utility uninstalls the internet connection sharing for the Nintendo Wi-FI USB Connector. This will disappear on its own.
    * The third will also have several question marks on it. Just click "Ok."
    * At this point, remove the USB connector from your computer.

    # Check the "Programs" list and, if the "Uninstall" option for the connector is there, run this process.

    * Click the Start button , and select "Programs."
    * If the Nintendo USB Wi-Fi Connector is listed, click on the "Uninstall" program to remove it.

    # Check Add/Remove Software on the computer and, if listed, remove the USB connector.

    * Click the Start button, and select Control Panel.
    * Open "Add/Remove Programs."
    * If listed, select the Nintendo Wi-Fi connector from the list, and click "Remove."
    * Follow the prompts to uninstall the program.

    # Remove the installation CD, power down your computer, and disconnect the USB connector if it is still connected. Being sure to leave the connector disconnected, power on the computer.

    * Once the computer is on, plug the connector into the USB port.
    * If Windows XP does not detect the connector as a new device and prompt you to install it, all components have not been removed from the computer. Complete steps 2 through 5 again.
    * If Windows XP does detect the connector as a new device, remove the connector from the USB port and go through the installation process again.
