    Okay, I have a gateway which my computer is hooked up too and a Wireless router is hooked up to the gateway too. Which my Wii uses (its ontop of my Wii). And I have Web GUI access enabled so my computer can access it through the primary gateway to the secondary. Is there away to use FTPii through two gateways? What would the IP syanax be? Eg. would it be: 172.16.1.38:192.168.1.142?
    Or 192.168.1.142.172.16.1.38:21?

    172.16.1.37 is my computer's IP.
    192.168.1.142 is my Wii's IP.
    172.16.1.38 is my Wireless router's IP to my primary gateway.

    172.16.1.1 is my primary gateway.
    192.168.1.1 is my secondary.
    From my Wii. Any help?

    If I understand correctly, this is your setup:

    Internets
    |
    |
    |
    [Router 172.16.1.1] ------ [172.16.1.38 Wireless Router 192.168.1.1]----- Wii 192.168.1.142
    |
    |
    COMP
    172.16.1.37

    Computer to Wii via FTP:
    I'm not sure about FTPii, but for just regular FTP, you would access 172.16.1.38:21 (note: 21 might be different depending on your port.

    Remember to port forward your wireless router to forward port 21 to 192.168.1.142.

    Thanks, I'll try it out.

    Wait, what if my Web GUI Access port is 8080? What would I put? 172.16.1.68:8080:21?

    Sorry for being a total noob, but... How do I setup a port forwarder?

    Does Wii have a WebGui? Anway, no it wouldn't be 172.16.1.68:8080:21 but I can see how you might think that.

    172.16.1.16:21 should be all you need, assuming that you set the port forwarding up properly to forward port 21 to your Wii IP address.
