    Hi, does anyone know if usb loader works with ethernet adaptor? I tyied a third-party ethernet adaptor in Cod:waw, and it didn't connect, and the LEDs on the adaptor didn't turn on, which might indicate it wasn't powered on. Anyone has more luck than me?

    Oh, no, now even loaded from a backup disk won't connect through a lan adaptor. So I think it's that cios rev 9 causing the problem. Can I uninstall it?

    I had a similar problem, but it was with FTPii, everything else worked fine, like Opera, Brawl online, etc.

    All I did was uninstall DVDx and install it again (advanced install -> IOS36). Did you have it installed before intalling cios rev 9?

    No. I try to keep things minimal on my wii, only install what's necessary. I never tried DVDx, maybe now i should try to install it?

    Edit: I switched to wireless with usb loader, it worked.

    Using disc games with usb lan adapter should work in SoftChip R88 even with the rev9 cIOS installed. Could you please test this and confirm it for me? Please.

    Just tried with Softchip R88, didn't work. Stuck at "connecting to Nintendo Wifi...", and the LEDs on adaptor weren't turned on.

    It says "connecting to Nintendo Wifi..." even with usb? Did you set your internet connection back to usb lan?

    i posted this on another thread already. Using the USB loader with a Harddrive or reader. Will have effect on all USB attach devices. Wii Speak, USB Lan, and Mic for Guitar Hero.

    That's just the msg the game(cod:waw) shows when it tries to connect to the internet, regardless wired or wireless. Sure I set it back to wired connection.

    The problem is cause with the latest version of cIOS rev9. I suggest you switch to a wireless connection for now until a rev10(?) release.

    If you don't have access to wireless connection then uninstall cIOS (or install rev8) if you're not using USB Loader.

    Yep, just installed rev8, and everything went back, but I lose the hd boot capability. Hard choice, hd or wired [​IMG]

    Or the rev8 cIOS installed as IOS249 and the usb cIOS from Kwiirk as IOS222. Downside is only that Kwiirk's cIOS doesn't work with Waninkoko's launcher.

    Well, I got DVDx, rev 9, cIOS222 and my lan adapter works just fine, with everything. That's on originals, though. I don't have a backup that has online features. :/
