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.

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

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer


Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

No internet connection on web browser


The problem may be in the router itself, prehaps a faulty product. But I am more inclined to think it is the outdated copy of windows 2000 which you use. In my view 2000 was second to Windows ME in terms of faults, errors, recoginizing hardware, and what have you. I would take the router back to walmart and test with a new one, but if that does not help, then it may be time for you to upgrade. Have you tried getting the ps3 online even without the computer having an active connection? Give that a shot and if for some reason the ps3 grabs the signal then it is time to give in for sure man. And watch the router when you try to connect the ps3 to see if it even attempts to grab the wireless connection, the wireless light will start blinking rapidly if it does.
