    It appears that your Wii console's Internet connection may be affected by wireless interference. Try the following:
    • Change your wireless router's channel to 1 or 11
      Changing the wireless channel on your router may help. Most wireless routers have a channel range of 1 through 11. The best channels to try are usually 1 and 11, as they do not overlap with other channels. Typically, the channel settings for your router will be found in the router's main "Wireless" tab.
    • Where is your wireless router located?
      Move your router away from walls and off the floor and try to place it in a central location in your home. Also, keep it away from metal objects such as metal filing cabinets which can cause interference.
    • Look for other devices
      Noise from cordless devices (cordless phones), or wireless electronics (wireless keyboards, headphones, cell phones), especially those using the 2.4GHz frequency, can interfere with your wireless signal. Also, older microwave models can cause wireless interference. Avoid electronics that use the 2.4GHz frequency, instead look for devices that use the 5.8GHz or 900MHz frequencies.

I used set up disk, set up SSID and added Key but laptop won't access SSID/router.

In order to access ther router wirelessly, you must first connect via cable to router. Using IE, go to and look in the Wireless section. Set the Network Name (SSID) you want - it can be almost anything you want - and after that you can choose what sort of Security you want to use, and set up your access passcode. Once this is all done, and access to Wireless is verified (using the passcode to access the SSID you chose) disconnect the cable. You now have control of router wirelessly.

I would like to lock and secure my connection that way im the only one using it. How do i do it please help.

The way to secure your router is to enable Security at one level or another. Log in to your router, open Wireless settings, verify your SSID (Network Name), and choose security other than None. Whatever passcode you set is the code you use on all computers to access your router. If the passcode is not known then wireless access will not be granted. NOTE: Wired access has no passcodes, as you pretty much know who's plugged in to it.

I misplace the disc awhile back, and i want to put a password to block others form useing it. Is there another way to do this without the disc?

You need to log in to your router ( and go to the Wireless section. You can set a secure SSID (Network Name) and also, and in the Security section you can set up further Security with any of several methods. All let you set a passcode to limit access to only those that know the passcode.

Need to secure wireless connection

1. Connect the computer to your Wireless router then using the internet explorer access the router gui 2. It is extremely important that you change the password for your router. Select a strong password using numbers and letters. This is the password that you will use to login and configure your router after this initial setup. 61e656e.jpg+

I am trying to set up another computer but cannot connect even though it shows the network available. How do I secure the wireless network?

Is this router set up with any security on the wireless? With a wired connection to the router, log in to or as needed to access your router. Once you are logged in, go to the Wireless section (the SSID, or name, of your network) and, if you have not already, set up Security. I prefer using WEP-PSK[TKIP] for its ease of use. You will need to use the new passcode to log on to your router from wireless computers. Anyone that does not know the passcode will be denied access to it.

How can I put secure my wireless network

making a wireless connection secure is very easy.
pull up the interface of the router, then look for the wireless tab.
click on the wireless tab and look for the button you can click to enable or disable wireless security..
create a passcode for your network and use that as the pass key whenever the wireless network requires it. i can provide more information if you can give me the brand name of the router you are using.. :-)

Your wireless passcode will be located in your router memory. You must log into your router and visit the link for wireless settings. It should be under security features in wireless settings.
