I managed to provide steady internet connection to my son's Wii console through Wi-Fi, by changing the encryption method to WPA Personal / TKIP, and setting the Group Key Renewal parameter to 0 (zero), which, for my router, which, by the way, is not made by Linksys, means, no renewal at all.
You could give such settings a try, if you really want.
Please, let me know if you need further clarifications.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

    mouse over TECH SUPPORT at the top and from the menu that drops down, click on ROUTER INFO. Near
    the top of the following page, under the words "I don't own a wireless router, help me find one!"
    there is a "click here" link, which will finally take you to Nintendo's wireless router rating
