Can i connect a pc to a wii to view pc screens a my tv


Instructions things you'll need:
  • Wireless router
    • 1 Determine if your Internet connection is compatible with the Wii's online console features. If you are using a dial-up connection you will not be able to connect to the Internet through the Wii console. The best connectivity is with a cable, DSL or fiber-optic connection.
    • 2 Start up your Wii. Go to the main menu. Click on the Wii icon button on the bottom left side of the screen.
    • 3 Select the "Wii Settings" button with a wrench icon. Go to the "Wii System Settings" menu.
    • 4 Click on the arrow on the right side of the screen to scroll to page two of the settings. Click on the "Internet" tab.
    • 5 Select "Connection Settings" from the menu that appears. Your screen should show three connection slots all saying "none" next to them. Select "Connection 1."
    • 6 Choose "Wireless Connection" from the pop-up screen. A new screen will appear that reads "Search for an Access Point," "Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector," and "Manual Setup." The easiest way to set up the Wii online is to select "Search for an Access Point."
    • 7 Wait a moment for your Wii to find an access point. When the words "Choose the access point you want to connect to" appear on your screen, click "OK."
    • 8 Pick your access point. Choose the point that is listed with a green signal strength icon.
    • 9 Save the settings by clicking "OK." Your Wii console will perform a test. A window will pop up asking you to perform a Wii system update.
    • 10 Complete the system update. Read and agree to the "User Agreements." You should be able to view movies, TV shows, websites, news and games from your PC on your TV.

Im trying to get wi-fi connection on pokemon soul silver version and it keeps coming up with 'No access point in range. Move within Range.' I dont know how to do it can you help me?


Hi amberjones62,

You're receiving that error message that "No access point is in range. Move within Range." is because your Nintendo DS is not detecting any wireless signal. If you have a working computer with wireless capability try to check if your picking up any wireless signal. You might be too far from your router or your router is not sending a wireless signal. If you will be able to detect the wireless signal I've listed below the steps on how to access your router and how to configure your DS to connect to the internet wirelessly.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remember the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reason why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection.Rate me if this helps so that i can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i get wii shop chanel


Hello

To get to wii shop channel first you need to configure your system
Configure your Nintendo Wii for a wireless Internet connection. The only way to access the Wii Shop is by having an Internet connection and a wireless router. The Nintendo Wii has a built-in wireless router that can pick up signals from wireless Internet connections. Make sure that your wireless Internet router is close enough so that the Nintendo Wii can pick up a signal.

Loading Wii Shop;
Use your Wii remote to select the Wii Shop from the main Wii channel menu. The Wii Shop is located in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If your Internet access is not set up yet, then you will be prompted and automatically brought to the Internet Configuration menu. Once your Internet is set up, you will either be brought back to the Wii Shop or the main channel menu.

Navigating the Main Menu
Look at the main Wii Shop menu. Here you will be given two main options with a couple of general options at the bottom of the screen. The first option is to look for games for the virtual console. The Virutal Console contains games from past systems like Turbo Grafx 16, NEOGEO, NES, Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64. Once you have loaded the virtual console menu, you can search games by most popular title, new titles, system, genre or price. When you have found a game that you are interested in, press the "A" button to see a more detailed description with a couple of screen shots, and find out how many Wii Points the game costs.

Wii Points
Purchase Wii Points directly through the Wii Shop by using a credit or debit card. You will use the Wii remote to point and select all of the card holder information. The minimum amount of Wii Points you can buy is 1,000 for $10, so if you want a game for 700 Wii Points, then you will have 300 points left over for future purposes. Instead of using a credit card through the Wii store, you can purchase a Wii Points card at a local retailer. These cards come in different point values, and 100 points represents a dollar.

Downloading the Software
Finalize your game purchase by confirming how many Wii Points will be deducted from your account. Once you have done this, the game download will begin. While it only takes a few minutes to download, you can see the progress by watching a Mario character jump and hit a brick. Once he has reached the third brick, your download is complete. From there, you can continue to shop in the Wii Shop or play the game.

Wii Ware
Check out the other option that is labeled as "Wii Ware." Wii Ware is a lot like the Virtual Console, but everything created here is new and original for the Wii. You can get updated channels like the new Photo Channel or get exclusive Wii Shop games like "Midnight Pool" and "Family Table Tennis." The games here actually are interactive Wii games, and you can get the full game for a lot cheaper than a new Wii game from a store.

On the setup for your wireless network through your router, you have to allow access for other devices. Your internet provider should also be able to walk you through this process as they did for me when I had the exact same problem.

PS3 can't detect access point


i have some solutions..
1. if there's lots of walls between the router and your ps3 it may not detect the signal. i had a very weak signal until i moved some stuff around.
2. you can manually type in your wireless name and i think it should at least reconize it, and maybe connect.
3. make sure theres no firewalls or anything to block other connections from entering your signal.
thats all i can say, sorry im not a tech guy-only 17!

Keep getting 800 error stating network error and it disconnects. ps3 is 2 feet from access point, 100% signal and I have reset modem twice and have a signal booster in the house?


If you are using wireless connection that could be your problem. Wireless isnt to stable for connection, but it depends on your environment(where you live). You could have a slow internet connection in your environment.

I dont understand how to hook my wii up to the internet


Official Wii Wireless Internet Connection Guide
For those unsure of how to connect your Wii to the internet wirelessly using a wireless router, here is my step-by-step guide for getting online.

First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/

From there, select your country, which will then take you to the WiFi index page. On this page, mouse over TECH SUPPORT at the top and from the menu that drops down, click on ROUTER INFO. Near the top of the following page, under the words "I don't own a wireless router, help me find one!" there is a "click here" link, which will finally take you to Nintendo's wireless router rating page, which you can look through to either see if your router will work or if you don't have a router, which one to get. For reference, if you live in North America, here is the router rating page.

The following are pics I took of my TV when first setting up my Wii's internet connection...

From the wii home menu...

Go to Wii Options in the lower left.

Interner connection


well first is it wired or wireless?

Wired: just plug in your Ethernet Cable in the back of the PS3 and go to Network Settings, Internet Connection and pick wired. do a Connection test and your good to go.

Wireless Network Settings, internet Connection then pick wireless, pick our access point and put any security codes in(WEP, WPA-SK) connection test and it should work.

But i recommend using the Wired connection cause the internet is a lot faster.
