    Our Wii used to connect to the internet/wireless router without a problem. Now all of a sudden the will cannot connect. When you try to find an access point, it will only find it sometimes and then when it does find it, while testing the connection it fails and says that it cannot find the access point. I know that it isnt the router because my psp connects just fine.

    We can' get the D link wireless router to work on the Wii. I had a Belkin before that was not secure enough for lap tops so bought a D - Link with WPA. Now with D Link I can't get the Wii to work. have tried manual settings, etc but it is not working. Can anyone help?

    Can you just add a new device to router instead of having Wii try to add it?

How to set up nintendo wii internet


  • 1 In order to set up your Nintendo Wii internet connection, you need to have high speed internet service, such as DSL, cable, or fiber optic.

    If you want to use a wired connection for your Wii, you will need to purchase the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter and a long ethernet cable to reach your router or modem. The Wii Lan adapter is available from many sources for about $30 and the cable will cost you around $10 or more. If you want to plug in your computer and Wii at the same time, you will need a router. You do not need a router if you are planning on unplugging your computer when you use Wii over the internet. Honestly, wireless routers cost about $35 and don't require a cable, so I purchased a wireless router instead. Plus, I don't want an ugly cable running across the room.

    If you still want to use the Wii Lan adapter to connect to the internet, here are the steps to connect your Wii Lan adapter to your Wii game system:

    Make sure your Wii game system is turned off.

    Attach the Wii Lan adapter to the USB port on the back of your console.

    Connect the other end to an ethernet cable that goes to your router or modem.

    Turn your console back on.

    If you are using the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter to connect to the internet, follow this step. If you are connecting to the internet via a wireless router, skip this step and go to step 3.

    To connect your Wii via a wired connection:

    Go to the Wii Menu.

    Click on the round Wii button on the lower left corner.

    Click Wii Settings.

    Click the right arrow to go to page 2.

    Click on the Internet button.

    Click Connection Settings.

    Click Connection 3.

    Click Wired Connection.

    Your Wii will do a connection test and hopefully everything will be all set. You are now finished.

    To connect your Wii via a wireless connection:

    Go to the Wii Menu.

    Click on the round Wii button on the lower left corner.

    Click Wii Settings.

    Click the right arrow to go to page 2.

    Click on the Internet button.

    Click Connection Settings.

    Click Connection 3.

    Click Wireless Connection.

    Select Search for Access Point. Click OK.

    Select the access point you want to use. Click Save and OK.

    You may be prompted to enter your password.

    Your Wii should now be all connected.

    The Wii could have triggered your connection settings inside your router firmware to lock up. Router settings may need to be configured to work with your Wii and the other PCs OK

    Wii connection issues.


    You can check if the problem is with the internet connection going to the Wii or just the wireless connection.

    When you loose connection, check the Wii's ip address. If it does not have an ip address(or ip is 169.xx.xx.xx) that means that the Wii is disconnecting from the wireless network. You can then try other wireless channels on your router.

    If the Wii is still getting an ip of 192.168.x.x, that means that the problem is the internet from the router. You might need to forward ports on the router for your Wii.
