Wii Wireless Internet Connection

Kpenguin,
I saw your solution to Figaro1974's question regarding connecting to the internet on your Wii, and thought you might be able to help me with my connection problems. I am using a Netgear wireless router CG814W and am not having any problems connecting with my PC. Do you have any ideas what could be the problem?

Thanks in advance

    Hi,
    I have an Actiontec dsl modem/router and have not been able to get the Wii to connect since its last firmware upgrade.  I was able to connect before that.  I have tried configuring the Wii with specific IP numbers from the modem range,putting in gateway and subnet mask numbers, using WAP security mode but the Internet connection test always fails.  The Wii does pick up the network name (SSID) for my LAN so I know it is not a distance issue.  I've spent an hour and a half on the phone with Nintendo support about this with no solution.  Basically, the support guy gave up.  Can you help?  Let me know if you need additional info.

Have you entered all your settings into the Wii? Gateway IP address, subnet mask, etc? If you have and it won't connect, is the wii too far away from the router to get a signal?

Also check that your router is set to allow enough divices to accomidate your Wii. Is it sending out IP's or do you need to manually enter the IP into the Wii? These are all things you need to check in your routers settings before setting up the wii.

Go to internet options on your Wii settings, select internet, and then connection settings. Once that is done you will be able to see the wifi connection. Click the wifi connection and delete it. Try to reconnect the Wii to your wifi router and you should have success connecting to the internet. If it doesn't connect repeat the steps listed above.

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.

    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.
