    ok, so i have been trying to get an smb share going to stream movies from my laptop to my wii, but i cant for the life of me get it to work....is there a good tutorial somewhere that can walk me through it step by step?? i have tried searching with google, but i can't find any info relevant to the wii, just setting up shares for other computers on my network..

    Probably easiest just to download filezilla and set up a share with that.

    http://filezilla-project.org/

    It's free and works really well,

    Edit: I should mention I use Filezilla and the latest WiiMC, really great combo.

    Filezilla is only needed if you want to use FTP, not SMB. This isn't the most detailed tutorial, but it gets the job done:

    1) Please don't necropost. This is from 2012.
    2) If there isn't one already, there should be a very good guide on the WiiMC site.
