I keep getting an error saying "The connection with playstation network timed out" I'v already disconnected everything, and also had someone there change my password and I still cannot log in....


Check the settings on your router, in particular the channel it is using. The best channel to be on is channel 11. If you have had a power fail your wireless router may have like mine gone back to channel 1, which causes me connection problems. Also, have you carried out an internet connection test on your ps3. Make sure that you are getting access to the psn.
Really hope this helps.

This is the first time setting up the wii and im trying to play call of duty black ops. On the wii menu it says the wii connection is fine, but when i put in the game it says wii connection is bad. What is...


The game and wii system settings probably have a different definition of what they consider a good connection. Try the news or weather channels and see if that works. If so you may be able to play the game as it is. If not you can try shortening the distance between the wii and your router. You can also try changing the wireless channel on your router

If your connection isn't very strong you will have issues connecting to the Shop Channel. Verify your connection. The problem also may be a necessary update. Go to your settings and get the latest Wii system update.

Getting error code 209600 while trying to download of wii shop channel


Error Code: 209600 Errors within this range usually indicate that the console timed out when attempting to communicate with Nintendo's servers.
The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection servers could be experiencing a high amount of traffic. Please try your connection again later.
If you have waited several hours and are still unable to connect, there could be an issue with your connection. Please review the folliwing information:
How are you attempting to connect your Wii console online?
    Wireless Router:

  1. Make sure you are using a "broadband" internet connection, such as high speed cable or DSL. Slower connection types, such as dial-up, may not work properly with the Wii console. If you are unsure what type of connection you have, please contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for more information.

  2. Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. Be sure to try both channels if the first one you try does not work. This can potentially increase the download speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available). (The "Channel" setting is typically found in the "Wireless" section of your router's setup utility.)
  3. Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off. Wireless keyboards and mice may also cause interference.

  4. If this error occurs regularly, it is may be a connection problem related to the firewall settings of your wireless router. It may be necessary to disable wireless security on the router. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available). For detailed information on where to locate your router's firewall settings, please consult the owner's manual for your router, or contact the router 's manufacturer. (More about firewalls)

  5. Are you using a Netgear brand wireless router? Our expeirence shows disabling the "SPI Firewall" of the router may help the connection. The "SPI Firewall" option is typically found under the "WAN Setup" tab of the router's settings. For information on accessing your router's settings, please click here and select the model of the Netgear router you own (if available).

    Im having problems conecting my nintendo wii to my tiscali siemens gigaset se587,can you help me please as i have tried to link them both together with a wireless conection but i just get an error message?...


    hi

    i have just solved this problem on the SE 587, hope it works for you.

    1) in internet explorer type 192.168.1.1, which should bring up your router settings - then select "wireless" and then "basic wireless settings" - under "auto channel" set it to "disable" and the set "wireless channel" to "1" , then "save settings" - my pc briefly went offline and quickly came back.

    2) when setting up the connection on the wii you need the code from the bottom of the router - make sure you have "caps lock" ON on the wii when you set up.

    3) now everything works perfectly on the wii - you dont even need the pc on! just the router.

    good luck IAN.
