How to use a Mac-Mini to connect a Wii to the internet!!

by jbeme05 / June 16, 2009 9:02 AM PDT

I'm from the US but I'm now living in Brazil. One of the bad things from here is the horrible and expensive internet. My only option is a 3G modem from a cell phone provider, and as we all know, they don't play nicely with Wi-Fi routers, including my own. I was wondering if there were any ways to send internet from my Mac-Mini (2nd Gen equipped with AirPort Card) to my Nintendo Wii, using either a wireless or wired connection (I have a LAN to USB adapter for my Wii). I have been able to create a network between the two, but that doesn't work for sending internet, I guess just for sharing files or something of the sort. PLEASE HELP ME!!! IM NOT A COMPUTER WIZ AND I NEED MY DAILY FIX OF ONLINE GAMING!!! Sad

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
