I am having a problem with my new Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, I have followed all the instructions halfway down this page, configured for Trend Micro 2006 and yet nothing seems to work, unless I allow all incoming traffic, which is not an option, the above page only mentions outgoing traffic, so I am stuck.
Any ideas?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, where abouts are you stuck?
Do you have a nintendo ds and are trying to get online?
Maybe it's because you can only use WEP security.

the Nintendo DS shows that it can only acess the application on my computer, not the Nintendo Wi-Fi server. When I lower the security setting to Low in TM, it allows me to acess it, but I am trying to form an exception, so I can still hold on to my extra security.
also, I am fully updated on the NWFUSB software, at version 1.04.
Sorry for not totally covering my bases in the first post

Currently on a Nintendo DS you can only have WEP security which sounds like your problem. Turn "broadcast SSID" to make your connection more secure and possibly only allow certain MAC addresses to access it.
