For as little as half the cost of the Base Station, you can buy an AirPort-compatible wireless router that offers most of the AirPort Base Station's features (and in some cases, even more).

The AirPort were the easiest to set up, and works rather smoothly vs all the other routers on the market.

All the others tended to have a few hiccups, some more than a few, but the AirPort is Macs best bet.

I am trying to get on the wii internet like i always could but it loads for 30 sec. to 1 minute. the it says error code: 51332


Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

If your router is using WEP encryption

  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with :
  • WPA - PSK(TKIP)
  • WPA - PSK(AES)
  • WPA2 - PSK(AES)
If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings.

2170W wireless connection to mac computers


My suggestion would be to connect an ethernet cable from the printer to the router. This is a more stable connection for the printer on the network.

All of your wireless computers will be able to connect to it and print to it as long as they are connected to the network.

To get the printer back in wired mode, you will need to reset the printer and network card of the printer.

1. Turn off power
2. Hold down go Button while switching back on
3. Wait 2 secondes before letting go and press the go button 8 times quickly
4. Wait for the unit to finish warming up
5. Repeat steps 1 and 2
6. Wait 2 secondes before letting go and press the go button 7 times quickly this time
7. Wait for the unit to finish warming up then plug in the ethernet cable.

2 routers, same WLAN MAC addresses.


Hello Sailorgreg,

mac addresses are supposed to be unique addresses for each and every wireless network device.
There is no way to change or modify a mac address as it is programmed into the actual network adapter.

If you have purchased two different routers and they have the mac address for both, I would recommend trading one of them in because this would be a defect.

Thank you,

Pat

Wireless


Well once it is reset, in the configuration section of the router, for setting standard passwords, you can change the password, which is advisable.

Next, for setting up a private wire/wireless network, My way of doing it is by setting the system up to Only allow Certain Mac Address's from the computers that are allowed to access to the internet through yours

To get the MAC Address, Hit Start, Run Program, Command Prompt. Then in Command Prompt, enter this string line: ipconfig /all

From there, it will give you the MAC Address for that computer. It should be a total of 12 Alpha Numeric Digits, Spaced with dashes between every 2. With that, you go into the router and in the Mac Address section for computers allowed to connect to your network, you enter in all the MAC Addresses that are allowed to use your network. Save, then it should refresh the page once that is done. With that, it makes a very hard to break Network that actually doesnt take much time. I was quite surprised 4 years ago to find that this was the easiest way to really set up a near perfect network with no issues
