Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii wireless connection

I'm running in to problems connecting to the internet on my Wii. I tried the solution you mentioned in Figaro1974's question, and wanted to see if you have any ideas.
I'm currently using a Netgear CG814W router which works fine for my PC connection. Any suggestions on what could be causing the problem?

Thanks in advance for your help.

On your computer Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1

Look for the SSID and write it down.
Also write down the type of encryption you are using. WAP, WEP, or none.
Also write down the security Passphrase.

Also you will need the IP address, in Windows click on Start, Run and enter 'cmd" in the run box.

At the command line type "ipconfig" and record the IP address

On the wii, You should be able to have the wii look for a Wireless Access Point. If that does not work try the Manual Setup in the Internet Connections menu.

Enter SSID
Enter Type of Encryption.
Enter Security Passphrase
Enter IP address
MTU value is not required. Nintendo recommends 1500 if you are having issues.

I can not connect to the wirelless conection.


Hi santi_agu2,
You did not mention what type of console you have. Anyway, here are the intructions if you have a Nintendo Wii. Go to the Main menu by Pressing the A Button. Choose "Wii Settings" and go to "Wii System Settings" menu. Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select "Internet." Select "Connection 1: None" (if you don't see any connections just choose "Clear Settings.") Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point." Select the wireless connection that is yours and then input the router password. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The unit will then run a connection test. After the connection test, the Wii console will check if there is a new Wii System Update available. Just select "Yes" and "I Accept," the Wii will begin to download any available updates. You will now be connected to the internet. All the best to you. I hope everything works out.

I'm trying to run Wi Fi from my internet on my cell to my son's wii,can I do this?


The cell would have to be able to setup a hotspot. If enabled the wii should see the phone as any other wifi connection. So yes it is possible it depends on the phone.

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.....

How do you connect the internet to the wii i have wireless in the house and it still wont connect


First, you have to go through the Internet connection setup process through the console and you've made no mention that you've attempted that so I wanted to make you aware of that. On the main menu, go to the lower left corner and click on the round Wii button. A new menu will appear with two options: Data Management and Wii Settings. Select Wii Settings. Go to the second page and choose Internet. Select Connection 1: None. Select Wireless Connection. Select Search For An Access Point. A network list will appear, select yours. You will then be prompted to enter the password/network key that you established when you set up your wireless router. The Wii will attempt to test the connection. If successful save your settings.
Second, simply because you have Wireless in the house it doesn't mean that it your wireless router has signal strength to reach the WIi. Various factors affect this including signal strength, distance from the wireless router to the console and obstacles such as walls and ceilings that interfere with the signal. If you're using a G router and you have your Wii is too far away or, has obstacles in the way, it will not connect. You should use an N-Router if there is a significant distance between the console and the router or if there are obstacles. Here is everything you need to know about connecting your Wii to the Internet.

How to set up nintendo wii internet


  • 1 In order to set up your Nintendo Wii internet connection, you need to have high speed internet service, such as DSL, cable, or fiber optic.

    If you want to use a wired connection for your Wii, you will need to purchase the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter and a long ethernet cable to reach your router or modem. The Wii Lan adapter is available from many sources for about $30 and the cable will cost you around $10 or more. If you want to plug in your computer and Wii at the same time, you will need a router. You do not need a router if you are planning on unplugging your computer when you use Wii over the internet. Honestly, wireless routers cost about $35 and don't require a cable, so I purchased a wireless router instead. Plus, I don't want an ugly cable running across the room.

    If you still want to use the Wii Lan adapter to connect to the internet, here are the steps to connect your Wii Lan adapter to your Wii game system:

    Make sure your Wii game system is turned off.

    Attach the Wii Lan adapter to the USB port on the back of your console.

    Connect the other end to an ethernet cable that goes to your router or modem.

    Turn your console back on.

  • 2

    If you are using the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter to connect to the internet, follow this step. If you are connecting to the internet via a wireless router, skip this step and go to step 3.

    To connect your Wii via a wired connection:

    Go to the Wii Menu.

    Click on the round Wii button on the lower left corner.

    Click Wii Settings.

    Click the right arrow to go to page 2.

    Click on the Internet button.

    Click Connection Settings.

    Click Connection 3.

    Click Wired Connection.

    Your Wii will do a connection test and hopefully everything will be all set. You are now finished.

    Select the access point you want to use. Click Save and OK.

    You may be prompted to enter your password.
