Another "can't connect to the internet" question! I bought my Wii in Dec 09. All works well except I can't connect to the internet. I follow all the instruction for wireless connections (I recently bought an Airport express and already have wifi in the house - long story). But the Wii doesn't pick up either of the wireless connections. Also, when it searches it locks up! I can't use the remote or main power switch to shut it down and has to be de powered at the wall socket. Any ideas?

I cant get internet acess so it told me to complain to you. :/


Here are step by step directions on how to set up your internet connection. Now the Nintendo Wii uses a wireless connection, so it's important to note here that you must have some type of wireless router, or internet connection that it can connect to!

I have internet through cable.it runs through the sb5101u surfboard motorola modem. i bought the lan adaptor to go to the wii, for netflix, but it won't connect to the internet. error code 52020


Here is the solution from nintendo:

  1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
  2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
  3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.
  4. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input theseexactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
  5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE. Contact your ISP for more assistance.

Cant connect to the internrt via talktalk modem


Hello,

This could easily be an issue with either your TalkTalk internet connection or your Wii. I did experience issues connecting my Nintendo Wii console at first too, but after getting a new router, it works just fine.

The Nintendo Wii console has never been a very good internet-enabled console anyway, and alot of wireless settings will not be compatible with it.

Make sure that your TalkTalk router is using WEP or WPA-PSK security. You can also try changing the Wireless Channel and MTU Size. make sure the MTU size is set at 1450, the channel can be anything, but only a few should work. You can access these settings easily by just going to Internet Explorer and typing in:
  1. 192.168.1.1 for D-Link and Huawei
  2. 192.168.0.1 for Netgear
  3. 192.168.1.254 for Thompson Speedtouch
If TalkTalk did supply your router, then it should be one of the models mentioned above.

If you have any laptops or phones that use the wireless and it works fine, then it may just be the Wii console. TalkTalk will not support the Wii or any video game console so there's no point in calling them for support.
I work for TalkTalk as a senior technician, so I hope this information helps.
Take Care.

How do I use the internet without a wireless router.I have a regular internet box and the internet cable for the wii,but i cant seem to connect to the internet this way.


You will need to buy the wired internet connector for the Wii, called the Wii LAN Adapter. It plugs into one of the USB ports in the back of the Wii.

There is a good step-by-step from Nintendo's website here:

Good luck.

Connecting my wii to the internet


to connect your wii to the internet connect to the following link or read the following instructions
http://systemsetup.nintendo.com.au/Connecting_Online

to connect your wii to the internet you will need to provide a wireless internet access point for it to find. you will need:

a computer connected to broadband internet
a wireless router OR Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector OR Wii LAN Adapter
your wii console to be nearby all of the above

If you are using the LAN Adapter you must plug the USB connection into the back of your wii console and the other end to your internet modems ethernet port. (follow steps below)

if you are using a wireless connection follow steps below.

Turn on your wii and on the main menu select 'wii' in the bottom left hand corner
On the next screen, select 'wii settings'
In the 'Wii System Settings', click on the blue arrow on the right to reach the second screen of options. On this screen, click the 'Internet' button.
Select 'connection settings'
select an open connection indicated by 'none'
select the corresponding option, Wired or Wireless connection

Wired:
(follow steps below)

Wireless:
Select the corresponding option, Search for an access point or Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
the wii will search for an access point, select the access point you wish to connect to, and save the settings

The wii will now do a test connection and do a system update, the wii will now use that connection point to acces the online services

hope i helped!!
