One option is try choosing a different type for your password...i've had the problem before and what i did was to change the password type e.g. from wpa aes-tkip to wpa-aes passphrase (this option will appear during your wii internet connection set-up as you would probably know by now) and everything right after started to fall in place perfectly, just try what password type will work for wii started connecting to my router and never had the same problem ever since.

When I go to get Internet soo I can play online it says that I can't use the connection and there is Ann error code it is 52230.I have the right password for the router and the Internet but it just won't...

What is happening is your router is not able to assign an IP address to your Wii. More than likely one of your units, either the Wii or the router, is set for automatic assignment, and the other has been set for static IP addresses. Both of the units should be set for automatic assignment of the IP address.

Go to the Wii Settings screen, and then go to page 2 and select Internet. Select Connection Settings, and choose the connection file you are currently using which should have a red box highlighting it. Then choose Change Settings, and click the blue arrow until you see Auto-Obtain IP Address. Your next step would be to set the IP address of the router you are using. The more common routers use the following IP's:

  • Linksys - enter:
  • Netgear - enter:
  • Belkin - enter:
  • D-Link - enter:
  • Apple - enter:
  • 2Wire - enter:
  • Actiontec - enter:
  • SMC Networks - enter:

From here you then have to ensure that your router has been set to Auto Assign the IP addresses as well. The setups differ from router to router. If you are unable to figure out how to change the setting to auto message us back with the brand name and model of your router and we can then supply you with more assistance.

You can try to change the channel on your router to either 1 or 11. How you do this depends on your router model.
Also make sure your network settings are correct on the Wii by running a test or trying to connect to the Wii Shop channel. If these work Call of Duty should work as well.

Trying to get my wii online haveing problem with acess with my linksys router

Hi ericpauley, could be one of a few things so lets list em out for ya and see what works :)
First, check your router setup page and verify which type of security you have it set up with (this will either be WEP, WPA-PSK(TKIP), WPA-PSK(AES), WPA2-PSK(AES). Once you verify this go into your Wii network settings and verify that you have that set to EXACTLY the same one.

If the security type matches exactly and you are still having an issue go back into your router setup page and retype your network access code then go to your wii and enter it exactly the same (if you use any capital letters at all they must match exactly when you enter it into the wii)

If you still have a problem then go to your Wii network settings and see if it can even see your network (with whatever name you gave your network when you set it up), if you cannot see your network at all on the Wii then go to your pc and check that and see if your PC can see the wireless network.

If your pc can see the network and your Wii cannot, try moving the Wii to a another spot as its possible the signal is being disrupted by electrical wires in the walls, etc.

I hope this helps you get up and running!

My Linksys will not connect to my WII

Well the first thing is that you have WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. So first you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router. Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's web site. Connect your computer to the router. Open the router page. Click on Administration tab. Just below administration you will find firmware upgrade subtab. If you click on it, you will find the browse option. Browse the file that you have downloaded from the web site. and Click upgrade.
For WII, you will also need to change the MTU to 1365 and open some port numbers on the router.

I can connect the internet on my wii with this

**I m not able to find a snapshot of the router interface. But i ll tell you what all to do there
1) Disable the router's inbuilt firewall
2) Enable DMZ for your Wii's IP address; assign this same IP address on your Wii manually
3) Change the bandwidth of wireless to 20/40MHz
This will surely work

My xbox360 scans and finds router but it will not connect. what is the problem?

Before connecting the X-box or play station or nintendo WII to the network, Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router.
if you don't know the wireless settings , then you will need to open the router set up to find the wireless settings.

Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365.
Also you will need to open the ports on the router.
For WII port numbers are ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443.
For XBOX port numbers are ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
For Play station port numbers are ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.


On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

Troubles connecting WRT160Nv3 Linksys router to Wii

I am thinking the router was set to get it's IP from the modem and when you changed the IP after the power failure, is when you problems started. I suggest looking at your networks IP addresses. I think they are not on the same subnet.
My first step would be to record the settings and do a hard reset on the router, then proceed to reinstall the settings and make sure your network is on the same subnet.

Cannot connect Wii to Linksys WRT160N, Test connection is successful; however getting error code 220602 when it attempts to access the internet. Tried changing channels, manually inputting codes, disabling...

1.Unplug all off your devices starting with the wii then your linksys router.

2. On the router unplug the connections on the back ports then reconnect them "port connections first then power connections second"

3. Go to the wireless connection screen and do a network test on the Wii.

4.If that doesn't work then you have to go into the router itself through its ip address and redo the settings to make sure you have the connection to the router unblocked.

I hope that helps

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.
