I'm trying to connect my Wii to the Internet. I currently do not have a wifi connection but I have the adapter that connects to the internet. I have already changed the connection on the Internet...

you can try this step on how to connect your wii console on internet...

Error Code: 52020 What to do will depend on how you are connecting your Wii console. Please use the info below that describes how you are connecting.
    Connecting directly to a modem:
  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 these exactly 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.

    Connecting to a router:
  1. Ensure that an Ethernet Cable is running from the WAN or Internet Port on the router to the modem. Power cycle the modem by unplugging it from the electrical outlet, waiting a moment, and then plugging it back in.
  2. Power off the Wii console, and insert the Wii LAN Adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.
  3. Run an ethernet cable from the Wii to a numbered port on the router.
  4. Power on the Wii console, and run a connection test through the Wii console's online settings.
  5. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's settings on your PC:
    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 these as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection, except for the IP address. The IP address needs to be different. Add 10 to the IP address and use that number in the Wii console's settings.
if this help you please rate me thank you sir.....

Ps3 wont connect to wireless


Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Did you turn on internet connection sharing on the laptop? If you connecting to the router make sure that the router has NAT enabled and not passthru.

Ip address failed

I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Connecting on line - IP address

From the sounds of it your using a wireless connection? when you use the auto connect and it fails what does it say in the connection status in internet options? what is your signal strength? mine wouldnt work if it was less than 90%. i sorted this by moving my wireless box to the top hall so connection is 100% and i have no problems. please feel free to ask any questions.

PS3 connection error

Are you connecting through a router?. If so set all of your PS3 settings to easy. If your trying to connect directly to a dsl or cable modem, you might not get connectivity but may get an ip address, as some providers require that you register your MAC address with them to connect a particular device. If you have a router...say a wired one, and you connect any PC through it and get internet, you should be able to hook up the PS3 and put it on easy automatic settings for the connection and it should connect. However, if the router is set for a static ip address (no dhcp), it wont hand out all of the information to the Ps3.
