Re: Wii not connecting to internet with Cablecom Horizon HD Recorder?

What I would recommend, is hooking up a 2nd router off of the Horizon. Personally, I have good experience with Netgear and Western Digital. In addition to easier hookup (to the wii), via better support software, a 2nd router will also act as a Firewall protecting against the mighty UPC network and the wild wild web.
Another thing you might want to do is turn off the free wifi that every Horizon and wifi modem from UPC has by default. This service is basically using your home as a public wifi hotspot and any walker by can access the internet via your folks Horizon device. Personally, I do mind being so used and have turned wifi completly off on my wifi upc modem. Of course you also give up your right to use the free wifi service (no great loss).
