The port tab wouldnt have any affect on the problem. I had a similar problem as you and it is the console just simply massing everything up. Solution: restore Factory settings on the console and reset your entire network.

Cant get XBOX LVE


1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

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.

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    To connect your Wii via a wireless 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 Wireless Connection.

    Select Search for Access Point. Click OK.

    Select the access point you want to use. Click Save and OK.

    You may be prompted to enter your password.

    Your Wii should now be all connected.
