    The Wii system and the router were setup to
    converse with each other, when the Wii was
    bought. This problem between the Wii,PSP connecting to the router is a recent problem
    that started when I had to replace my modem

Hard reset everything.

Power down and unplug (except P/C) every component in the network for 5 minutes for a hard re-set... Then plug in/turn on in the following order -

  1. Modem - wait until fully powered on before moving on.
  2. Router - wait again until fully powered on before going to next step.
  3. Main P/C - again - wait until windows loads fully.
  4. Wii
  5. PSP
  6. Other
This will allow each peripheral to connect at the same address without problems.

If you have a G speed router - you may think of upgrading to N for online gaming.
G speed have larger wavelength frequency and are easily dropped thru walls, another router near your home, or interference from phones powerlines etc.

You need to reset your router.  There should be a reset button on the back.  Do this and redo the cd and reset up your Wii.

Hi,

  • orking with the SPI Firewall
    If you are able to log in and disable the router or gateway's firewall, you may be able to get the Wii console connected online. To do this you may need to get a "super user" password from your ISP.
  • Updating your Wii console
    If you use an ISP that prevents the firewall or SPI firewall setting from being adjusted, or if you prefer not to adjust the router's firewall, updating your Wii console with the latest system menu may resolve the console's ability to connect with Nintendo's servers. (This may be especially true if your Wii has not been updated to Wii Menu 2.2* or higher. Link here for information on determining which Wii menu version you have.) To download the system update to your Wii system, you will need to successfully connect your Wii console online. If your current connection through your ISP-provided router is preventing a connection, you will need to find an alternative online connection, such as taking your Wii console to a friend's house where there is a compatible internet connection. If this option is not available to you, link here for information on other options. If after performing this update you are still experiencing problem

Hi!

You need to search for your access point from your wii console and then put in your security settings. You have to search for wireless networks again, based on the interface, it will not automatically connect to any of them, you have to set them up first.

Are you using a full version of internet channel which is a version of the Opera 9 Web browser? Try moving your wii closer to your router to improve the signal.

Check that your network signal is strong enough

    Check that the problem is not just a weak signal from the network, remove any possible cause of disturbance (metal panels, TV etc.) between the Wii and the router.

    If you still get the problem, it may be an issue with the Wii network adapter, in this case call Nintendo support, they may offer you a replacement.

    I thought that the router was working.

    If the router is not working at all, not even with a wired computer, then you need to call your Broadband service provider, and follow the step by step indications to set up your network, with the settings they give you.

    If you tell me your provider and location I can find the number.

    Getting my wii hooked to wireless internet from my pc and wirleless router


    From the wii home menu... Go to Wii Options in the lower left. Click on Wii Settings to the right. From this first list, click the right arrow. Now on page 2, click on Internet. Then click Connection Settings. From this list, click Connection 1. Then, click Wireless Connection... and then click Search for an Access Point. It will briefly search for any access points and when the screen comes up, click OK. There will be a list of nearby access points. If the one you are looking for doesn't show up, click Try again. Then, click the one you have access to... When the following screen appears, click OK... and OK again. It will test the connection... And if successful, a menu will drop down. Click Yes to update Wii. Sometimes the prior screen is false, saying there is an update when there isn't and another window will appear... Now, back in Wii System Settings, click on WiiConnect24. From the following list click WiiConnect24. Click On and then Confirm to save your settings. This feature allows for updates to be seemlessly sent to your Wii so you don't have to do the final step every time. Ok, the final step, just as a way to make sure your Wii is up to date. Click the right arrow from the 2nd page of Wii System Settings. Click Wii System Update... click yes... it will test your connection for a few seconds... an update screen may quickly come up and tell you there is an update (whether or not your Wii actually needs one) Click Wii Menu to finish.

    Router is in secure status so cannot be used by anybody. Friend sorted it out for my laptop to be able to use it but i cant figure out how to be able to allow my Wii and PSP to use it. Both occur errors...


    For that you need to access your router configuration page.
    Connect your router to computer then access it with following link.
    For belkin router
    http://192.168.15.1
    for other routers
    http://192.168.1.1
    or
    http://192.168.0.1
    type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
    then you can see configuration of router.
    Click on wireless then check WEP or WAP key it is your password to connect internet.
    Let me know if you need further assistance.
