Question about Gateway Wireless-G WGR-200 Router (7004809)

1 Answer

Cannot connect I just recently bought a Gateway WGR-200 in order to set up a Wi-Fi cloud for my also recently acquired Nintendo Wii. I'm having trouble setting up the router, as I bought it off of eBay and it came with no instructions. Could anyone provide me with a solid walkthrough? Thanks in advance.

    I've filled out the fields on the set up page and I'm still having trouble connecting the wireless router and having a connection with my PC.

    I've set up my WEP security.
    I've adjusted the clock to the appropriate time zone.
    I've set up a Host and Domain name.
    Not sure what to fill out for my IP address, or what to use for the subnet mask in the LAN section of the set up page.
    I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with the DHCP

    Is there some sort of wizard I'm supposed to be running?

Assuming you are on Windows XP click on site below for router setup. The Nintendo 'Cloud' is just a network name so that when you are in a building that has supported wifi, you search for the network and use My Cloud as the password for connection on Nintendo DS. The settings you may require for the Nintendo Wii will probably be your routers IP address, Gateway and DNS address (just use same numbers). Apologies in advance if i'm incorrect as i have only setup a nintendo DS on my own wireless network and as Wii are not yet available i have no knowledge of it yet.

We connect through our wii was working this morning not this evening

The WII is not getting the internet because the Wii is not recognizing your service. Try putting in the information manually. Also try entering your password correctly, you may have to change the settings on the Wii.
NOTE. As of May 20 2014, Nintendo recently closed down the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection services but you can still access the internet through Wii Shop to get games etc.
If you still have problems, Call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 to get help.
Hope this helps you.

Cant connect wii to internet

The unit can connect to the Internet by utilizing its 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, which is built in, for wireless connections or via a USB-to-Ethernet adaptor for DSL connections.
For your wireless connection or Wi-Fi, the 802.11b Wi-Fi has a data rate of 11 Mbits per second and has an indoor range of 30m or approximately 98 ft. The 802.11g has the same indoor range, however the data rate is at 54 Mbits per second. If you have an existing wireless connection or are in a Wi-Fi hotspot, the unit will connect to your wireless connection automatically out of the box. If you do not have a wireless network, however, you will need to have your wireless network subscription done or set-up first. Once you have wireless Internet access, you then search for your access point, put in your security settings and you’re good to go. It would also be advisable to have a wireless router for this so that you won’t have to shuttle the connection between your PC and your Wii. wi-fi-usb-connector.thumbnail.jpgAnother option would be to connect your Wii via the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. This accessory allows Nintendo Wii users who do not have an existing Wi-Fi connection or a compatible Wi-Fi network to create one through their broadband or DSL connected computer. This is inserted into your existing computer’s USB port and the Wi-Fi USB Connector acts as a wireless access point for the Wii. This allows the user access to the internet and to play Wi-Fi Connection games from Nintendo Online.
nintendo-wii-lan-adapter.thumbnail.jpgFor your DSL connection, however, you will need to have quite a few things. You can use a WII LAN adapter to connect your Wii to your DSL modem. You can also use a router so that you can use your PC and your Wii at the same time. With the LAN Adapter though, to use or plug in the Wii, you must disconnect your PC. This can be quite tedious since you will have to plug in and out your PC and your Wii every time you need to use one or the other. A LAN Adapter is fairly cheap, but if you get a router, your PC and your Wii can go online at the same time, saving you the hassle of connecting one or the other when you need them. You can then hook up the existing ethernet cords to the back of the router and connect it to the Wii via a USB 2.0 cord.

i hope this helps

If you go to wii options on the bottom left of the wii menu, hit wii settings and then keep moving to the right until you see the option "internet," click on it and select connection settings and search for an acces point. If you can't find one that is unsecure, go back and buy a Nintendo wi-fi usb connecter, (I got mine @ walmart), and then install the software into your computer and follow your instruction manual. then connect with the Nintendo wi-fi usb connectewr on the connections screen, then you should be good to go!
