Turn on your Wii.
  • 3Select Wii Options, which is located on the bottom left of the screen. This is the button with the Wii logo.
  • 4Select Wii Settings.
  • 5Click forward to the second menu screen using the blue arrow to the right.
  • 6Select Internet.
  • 7Select Connection Settings.
  • 8Choose an open connection, indicated by the word: "none".
  • 9Choose a wireless connection.
  • 10Determine the best option for you: Manual configuration or Search for an Access Point.
  • 11On Search for an Access Point, your Wii will search for a wireless network to connect to and will display a list of available networks. Networks identified with a closed padlock require authentication to join.
  • 12Select your network.
    • If your connection signal appears yellow or red, the stability or strength of the connection is not strong enough for the Wii's Internet needs. If possible, remove any obstacles between the Wii console and the Access Point or change the channel on your router to avoid interference.
    • If your wireless access point does not show up when you choose, Search for An Access Point, your router may have Broadcasting set to "No" or "Disable." Some routers also refer to this security as "Stealth" mode. You can either change your broadcast setting to "Yes" or "Enable," or you can manually enter the SSID in the manual setup screen of your Wii console.
  • 13Select Save and OK.
  • 14Select OK on the next screen and the Wii will preform an automatic connection test.
  • 15Wait for the Wii to connect and download any needed updates.

    First, you must be in range of a Wifi hotspot (wireless local area network). You can adjust network setting to connect to an access point such as a Wi-Fi hotspot or the router on a wireless home network and save the network connections data on your PSP. Up to 10 connections can be saved.

    Hotspots can be found in airports, hotels, restaurants, and at home if you have a wireless network. Once in range of the hotspot, go to "Settings" menu, >> "Network" Settings and press "X" Button. Select "Infrastructure Mode" and press X Button. Set up the "New Connection". For details about Infrastructure Mode set up, or Ad Hoc Mode set up, visit us.playstation.com.

    Search for networks in range. You will usually need a signal of at least 40% to connect - the higher the percent, the connection will be faster. If the connection is successful, information about the network connection will appear. hope this helps.
