I CANT GET INTERNET ON MY WII I HAVE A WIRED ROUTER BUT I CANT FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET DSL WORKING PLEASE HELP!


Hi,
First off we have to make sure that your unit is properly connected to your router.
Note : Please note that Non-Nintendo manufactured USB LAN adapters will not work with the Wii console system.
1) Unplug your modem first for about 90 seconds and then plug it back in before continuing.
Note : You need to unplug the cable going to your computer when you wish to connect your Wii console online.
2) Insert the Wii LAN Adapter into the USB port on the back of the Wii console. The Wii should be turned off when you do this
3) Connect an Ethernet cable from your wired router to the Ethernet port on the Wii LAN Adapter.
4) Turn on your Wii and go to the "Wii Main Menu," then select the Wii icon (on the bottom left)
5) Select "Wii Settings" then "Wii System Settings"
6) Scroll to page two (using the arrow on the right) and select "Internet."
7) Select "Connection Settings." and then "Connection 1." ( connection 1 should say " None" if it says otherwise, click on Connection 1 and choose " Clear Settings")
8) Select "Wired Connection." then "OK" - It will now run a conncetion test
If the connection test is successul, it will do an update and will ask you if you agree to the User agreements. After agreeing to the terms, that's it. You should now be online.
I hope I was able to help. Hoping to hear good results.
All the best to you Mr. Edwards.
Cheers :)

Installed wireless printer, now we can't use netflix tru the wii, because router won't work and all the lights are on. On the wii it says errorcode 51030


You will need to port forward your router you can search for the ports that wii uses. see below on how to port forward

Once you open the set up interface of the router, you will be able to find the settings on the router where you can open the ports for the particular program.
If you are opening the ports for a special device in your network, then you must know the IP address of that device.
For example, wireless camera, DVR, X-box, Play station ...
You can choose the option PORT FORWARDING for a special device application.
If you just want to open the ports for all the network, then you can choose PORT TRIGGERING

For Linksys Router.

You have opened the set up interface of the router. You will see Application and Gaming TAB at the top.
If you click on that tab you will find different Sub tabs.
Click on Port Triggering => Here you can open the port numbers for the network.
Click On Port forwarding if you want to open the ports for a special device in the network.
Click Save settings once you open the ports on the router.

For D-link router


You have opened the set up interface of the router.
You will see Network settings in the left hand side panel of the page.
Click on Network settings and go to the Advanced TAB at the top.
Now you will find the option. Pot Forwarding in the left hand panel.
Here you can open the ports on the router.

BELKIN wireless router

Click on Port Triggering under Advanced menu.
Change the value of Port Triggering Timeout as 20 Click on Add Service. Specify a Unique/User Defined name under Service Name. Ex: Mails, VPN. Specify the Service User as Any (if all the computers in the network are port triggered or if a single computer on a network is port triggered specify the IP address of the computer). Select the Service Type of the port to be triggered
Ex: TCP . Specify the Trigger Port (The port to be triggered). Select the Connection Type of Inbound Connection. Specify the Starting and Ending Port for Inbound Connection. Click Apply to accept changes. Your router is now set up for port triggering..

Error code 84020 trying to play online


Greetings,

This is from the Nintendo website on what this error code means and how to fix it:


Error Code: 84020 Currently our Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection match making service is undergoing temporary maintenance. This maintenance can prevent certain games from matching up opponents. Please try your connection again later.
If you have waited several hours but are still receiving this error when connecting, please see the information below:
Cause: This error is typically caused by a firewall interfering with a successful connection to the Nintendo WFC. Please read the following information.

  1. Do you receive this error every time you try and connect?
    • If you receive this error every time, please proceed to step #2 on this page.
    • If you receive this error only when playing a particular friend, then it is likely a problem with the friend's firewall settings on their connection. If possible, tell your friend review the port forwarding instructions on this page.
  2. In order to solve this problem, you may consider adjusting your router's Port Forwarding settings*. Each router is unique, so consult the owner's manual for your router or contact the manufacturer for specific information on working with your router's ports. For your information:
    • If you are prompted for a device or profile name, you can enter anything you like (such as Wii, etc.).
    • The starting port to open is 1, the ending port to open is 65535 (or as high as the router will allow).
    • Protocols will need to be set to UDP only.
    • Set the IP address for the ports to forward to the same as the Wii?s static IP address. If you don't know what the Wii's IP address is, the best way to determine it is by performing a manual setup:


    How to manually configure the Wii's IP address:
    The first thing you'll need to do is find out what IP address range you should be using. To do this:
    1. Click the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your computer.
    2. Next, you will need to access the command prompt. To do this:
      • Windows XP users click "Run."
      • Windows Vista users click inside the search bar.
    3. Type "cmd" into the box and press Enter.
    4. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press Enter. The IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS servers of the PC will be displayed.

    The IP address you are going to assign to the Wii must be 10 digits higher than the PC's. (e.g., 192.168.1.100 becomes 192.168.1.110). The Wii and the PC must have different IP addresses. Make note of what IP address you will assign to the Wii. Enter in the exact same values for your Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Secondary DNS. They must be the same for your Wii console and for your PC.

    You will now need to manually assign this new IP address to your Wii console. For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, please click here.
    • After you perform the manual setup, the Wii will initiate a connection test. If the connection tests fails, then please review the values you entered. If you still cannot complete the manual setup, please give us a call at 1-800-255-3700 in the USA or Canada for assistance.
  3. Ensure your router has the latest firmware installed. Visit your router manufacturer's website and look for any updated firmware that may be available (these are typically found under "downloads" or by searching for your particular model number).
  4. The error may be caused by a basic setting on the router that needs to be adjusted (such as the channel). Please review our general router troubleshooting.
If you have tried all of the steps above with no success, we would like to speak with you directly. At your earliest convenience, please call 1-800-255-3700. Our representatives are available between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time, seven days a week.
*While Nintendo provides this information for our consumers' use, it is up to each consumer to determine what security needs they have for their own networks, and to decide how best to configure their network settings to meet those needs.

Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

Wii error code 86420


Error Code: 86420 This error occurs when there is a communication problem between players during online gameplay.
Try this:
  1. If your router's security software (firewall) is turned on, it may block communication that is required for online gameplay. To fix this, try disabling the router's firewall*.
    1. Most firewall settings are located under the "Advanced" or "Security" tab.
  2. If the problem still persists with the firewall off, you may need to open ports on your router through the Port Forwarding feature.
    1. Create a manual connection on your Wii and assign a static IP Address.
    2. Open ports 1 through 65535 as both TCP and UDP.
    3. Ensure the ports are forwarded to the same IP Address given to the Wii during the manual setup.
Trouble connecting to a friend?
If the above steps have not resolved the issue and you are trying to connect with specific friends, the problem could potentially be an issue on your friend's network. Your friend will have to perform these troubleshooting steps with their home network.
Using USB Connector or Lan Adapter? Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we can assist you further.
*While Nintendo provides this information for our consumers' use, it is up to each consumer to determine what security needs they have for their own networks, and to decide how best to configure their network settings to meet those needs.

I have a Belkin Wireless router and I have a PS3


Actually you don't need to forward ports when playing online games. The router should automatically locate the ports for the game because it has UPnP function. Here's what you can do. Disable the port forwarding and DMZ that you set on the router. Look for the UPnP function of the router and disable, Save it. Enable it again, then save. Now power cycle your router. If you have Static IP on the PS3 network settings, try to set it first to automatic IP and automatic DNS.

Hope that helps.

The thing about cable internet is the more people who get on the network in your neighborhood the worse your latency gets; same thing goes for the Nintendo Gaming Network. You can improve you latency by opening up your firewall for the Nintendo; there are two ways of doing this.

Setup port forwarding on your home router:

Or you can sent a Static IP Address as a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone). Then set your Nintendo IP Adress to match the DMZ IP Address so your router won't block any packets sent across the internet.

Wii connection issues.


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.

Belkin F5D5231-4 - create a wireless access point


I have had good luck with the NetGear Rangemax WPN824. It has multiple antennas that are supposed to provide better range, and your kids will like the blue blinking lights.
http://www.netgear.com/Products/RoutersandGateways/RangeMaxWirelessRoutersandGateways.aspx

Nintendo has a list of incompatible wireless routers:
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineWirelessRouterIncompatible.jsp

and the Rangemax is not incompatible.

Wii can use 802.11B or G.
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineWirelessRouterChoose.jsp

Since the Rangemax is both a wireless access point and a router (with 4 ethernet ports), you can just replace your existing router rather than plugging this router into your other one.
