Do you have a connection wizard that you can run on your computer? Linksys offers them for downloading at their website. Try that -
have you named your home network so your wireless connection can "find" it? You don't mention how your main computer is networked in. A wireless adapter for a notebook will need to have a Linksys connection wizard run on the laptop.

If you have a Linksys router connected to your main computer, it should already have the piece of software you need. Most likely, you'll need to put it on a flash drive and install it from that onto your laptop. the wizard helps also to diagnose the right settings.

If you want to post what you are using for your main network (linksys router?) and which operating systems you are using, that will help.

For example, in Vista, you'll need to enable the option for "network discovery" under your laptop's control panel/network and sharing center.

You also need to have certain settings on your main computer for the wireless to work - there are two main types of wireless connections - B and G. Most of today's routers and cards will do both, but if you have an older router, it might not be set up to handle the newer or combined types. They run on different frequencies, so your laptop might not be "reading" your router's frequency.Also, if you have other wireless/radio frequency equipment near your laptop, it can interfere with the signal being received right.

You also need to be sure that your firewall allows the linksys system to access your computer (allowed programs).

If i have wireless internect, how do i link my wii with it?


Wireless Connection
1. On the Wii console's main menu, click on the 'Wii button' in the lower left corner.
2. This will take you to the settings screen. On this screen, click on 'Wii Settings'.
3. 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.
4. Select 'Connection Settings'.
5. Select an open connection, indicated by 'None'.
6. Select 'Wireless Connection'.
7. Select 'Search for an Access Point'.
8. At this point, the Wii console will search for any identifiable Access Points nearby. Once this search has completed, you will be directed to choose the Access Point that you wish to connect to. Click 'OK' to display the list of available Access Points.
9. Select your Access Point from the list of available Access Points.
If your connection appears as a closed padlock, then the Access Point requires a security code or passphrase. The security code or passphrase can usually be found on the security tab of your wireless router settings.
If your connection signal appears yellow or red, the stability or strength of the connection is not optimal. If possible, remove any obstacles between the Wii console and the Access Point. I've also found that changing the channel on your router to channel 1 or channel 11 can sometimes help with singal stability and strength.
10. Click 'Save' followed by 'OK' to save your connection settings...
11. ...and select OK again to start an automatic connection test.
If the test succeeds, Internet Setup is complete and your Wii conosle is wirelessly connected!

If you have done all these setups make sure your selected network and encryption key are correct. If you have an error code search on that error code online.

How do you hook up the internet


Prerequisites:
  • A Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL
  • A broadband internet connection in your home, such as cable or ADSL
  • A wireless router / access point
  • You can also use a free public WiFi connection such as those found in McDonalds restaurants
Step by step instructions:
  1. Switch on your Nintendo DSi / DSi XL
  2. Click on the spanner icon to access - System Settings
  3. Select - Internet, on the 3rd page of - System Settings.
  4. Select - Connection Settings and tap the - None bar in - Connection 1
  5. You have 2 options here, you can setup a connecion manually or you can scan for available connections. The easiest option is to scan for an access point, select - Search for an Access Point
  6. The DSi / DSi XL will list the names of any access points that are in range. A yellow unlocked icon next to the connection name denotes an unlocked WEP connection. A locked yellow icon denotes an encrypted WEP connection that requires a WEP key or password to be entered
  7. If you are accessing an encrypted WEP connection, enter your WEP key now
  8. If the WEP key is correct, you should now be connected. Test your connection to verify this

I cannot connect my dsi to the internet. I try all I can but it doesnt work. How do I get it to connect?


You must either have broadband internet access and a wireless router or you can connect your Nintendo DSi at a hotspot, such as a library or coffee shop that offers internet access. Make sure you are in a location mentioned above before going to step 2.
Turn on your Nintendo DSi and click on the wrench icon. This will take you to the system settings.
Go to page 3 and select "Internet".
Click "Connection Settings".
Click "None" to the right of "Connection 1".
Click "Search for an Access Point".
Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.
If you are planning on playing games online with your Nintendo DSi and have WPA security, you will have to set your router to WEP security.
To do this, get back to the "Connection Settings" screen mentioned in step 4.
Click "Advanced Setup".
Click any button that says "none".
Click "Search for an Access Point".
Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.
