Question about Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point
Go to your router's Web Utility, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable (because you'll loose access to the router once you change its encryption rules). If you haven't changed the access parameters, the default IP address is 192.168.1.1, with 'User Name' left blank, and 'Password' set to 'admin'. In the 'Wireless' tab. I supponse you already have encryption definitions there. Try to set your 'Security Mode' to 'WPA Personal' and 'Algorithm' to 'TKIP'. Chose any 'WPA Shared Key' you want (from 8 to 63 characteers), and set the 'Group Key Renewal' parameter to 0 (zero, i.e. no key renewal, at all). Save your settings.
You see, my router is not Linksys, but in essence, the encryption parameters are quite alike, and this is how I managed to provide internet to my son's Wii console.
Hope it works for you.

Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: It appears that the password (also known as a WPA or WEP key) entered into the Wii console is not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.
How to fix: Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.
Don't know how to find your router's password?
Look for a sticker on the bottom of your router. Many routers provided by Internet service providers have their default password located on a sticker on the bottom of the router.
