There may be another post here, but it might be outdated.
Anyways, I had been using Nintendo Wifi USB connector as i have ZoneAlarm installed (registered).Of course, i kept on getting an error message: "unable to obtain IP address" or error #52003.I asked Nintendo about it, but they only said to remove zonealarm because it's uncompatable.
I don't believe that's true, there HAS to be a way to allow the connector to work through Zonealarm.
Here's my opinions:
I cannot modify the internet connecton sharing (ICS) on windows since it will cause the registration tool for the connector to stop working.
After i was logging the registration tool and accepting 0.0.0.0 port 68 heading to the dhcp client, it tells me 12 times before i get the error on my DS. It shows 3 acception message on my computer, 4 times.
Nintendo has offered connection details involved for the connector:
to destinations:UDP - anything (works for
peer to peer)TCP - 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, and 443
IP addresse - (TCP & UDP)192.168.1.1 SB:255.255.255.017126.96.36.199 SN: 255.255.255.00.0.0.0 Subnet: 255.255.255.255
and they also mensioned to keep any VPN programs closed
So, has there recently been any luck having the Nintendo Wifi USB connector be able to work on the recent ZoneAlarm Suite?
Windows XP Home Edition
ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
Edit: it seemed like zonealarm allows the information to send from the connector to the computer and to the internet, but doesn't allow to recieve back to the computer and to the connector...
USB connector > computer > internet (works)
internet > computer > USB connector (doesn't work with ZoneAlarm installed)
