One option is try choosing a different type for your password...i've had the same 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 you...my wii started connecting to my router and never had the same problem ever since.

I have mine connected via an airport extreme, I hope that some of this may apply to your installation......
I had to set the airport to be running on either Ch1 or 11.... NOT auto. Plus I have to use the full HEX passcode rather than my WEP password. You can convert your WEP pass here http://www.corecoding.com/utilities/wep2hex.php
On the Wii I also configured my Wii, subnet, router & DNS IP addresses manually.

f you are attempting to connect your Wii console online using a wireless router and you receive this error :
Ensure you are using a broadband or high speed internet connection such as cable, DSL, or fiber optics. Slower connections, such as dial up, may cause issues with the Wii or may not work properly.
Ensure there is no interfering devices by shutting off microwaves, cordless phones, wireless keyboards, and wireless mice.
Diable your firewall settings, as it may be causing a connection problem.
Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds. Be sure to test both channels to see which works better or faster.
If you are using a Netgear wireless router, disable the SPI firewall setting which is usually found under the WAN Settings of your wireless router.
If you are attempting to connect your Wii console online using the Nintendo Wireless (Wi-Fi) USB Connector and you receive this error :
If your PC is using security features or programs such as a firewall, antivirus, or antispyware, check all settings of these security features or programs to allow a successful connection.
You may try adding the following programs to your firewall list of "Trusted" applications
Temporarily disable your router's firewall which may allow the Wii console to connect online to recieve a system update. After, you may turn your firewall back on.
