Hi Ping,
You've hit upon something I didn't think about, I was trying it through 
the OPT1 interface. I didn't think about the Captive Portal either, you 
are right, the Wii is in the mac passthrough for it. I bet if I fake 
it's mac address, hit a single website (to establish the 
"unauthenticated" pass-through session), then let the Wii back in with 
it's own real MAC address, it might just be a work for the Wii.

I'll post back to the list if it works, good info for anyone else that 
encounters this.
