Here is how to setup wireless internet First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site:
http://www.nintendowifi.com/
From there, select your country, which will then take you to the WiFi index page. On this page,
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
page, which you can look through to either see if your router will work or if you don't have a
router, which one to get. For reference, if you live in North America, here is the router rating
page.
The following are pics I took of my TV when first setting up my Wii's internet connection...
From the wii home menu...

Go to Wii Options in the lower left.

Click on Wii Settings to the right.

From this first list, click the right arrow.

Now on page 2, click on Internet.

Then click Connection Settings.

From this list, click Connection 1.

Then, click Wireless Connection...

and then click Search for an Access Point.

It will briefly search for any access points and when this screen comes up, click OK.

The following will be a list of nearby access points. If the one you are looking for doesn't show
up, click Try again. Then, click the one you have access to...

When the following screen appears, click OK...

and OK again.

It will test the connection...

And if successful, the following will drop down. Click Yes to update Wii.

Sometimes the above screen is false, saying there is an update when there isn't and the following
will appear...

Now, back in Wii System Settings, click on WiiConnect24.

From the following list click WiiConnect24.

Click On and then Confirm to save your settings. This feature allows for updates to be seemlessly
sent to your Wii so you don't have to do the final step every time.

Ok, the final step, just as a way to make sure your Wii is up to date. Click the right arrow from
the 2nd page of Wii System Settings.

Click Wii System Update...

click yes...

it will test your connection for a few seconds...

an update screen may quickly come up and tell you there is an update (whether or not your Wii
actually needs one)

and the following screen will appear. Click Wii Menu to finish.

Now, some of you have gotten different errors and have had problems getting online. I'm guessing
many of these hassles come from the fact that hundreds if not thousands of new Wii owners are all
trying to, for example, post on the Wii Message Boards and browsing the Wii Shop, looking at and
downloading Virtual Console games, all at the same time. In probably a week or so, many of these
problems will disappear, so don't worry. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

How to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet


Hello,

In this tips and tricks guide I will go over the steps you will need to take if you wish to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet. If you want to connect wireless you will need to be within range of a wireless access point. If you wish to connect via a wired connection(Ethernet to modem or Ethernet to router) you will need a Wii LAN adapter which is sold separately.

-Power on the console and press the A button to reach the Wii menu. At the menu, use your remote to select the Wii button at the bottom left.

-Now select "Wii settings"
-Now, hit the arrow on the right side of the screen to go to the next page and select "Internet"

g33k4u.png

-Select "Connection 1: none"
-Select "Wireless Connection" then select "Search for An Access Point"
-Select "OK" then the Wii will display all the wireless access points(wireless routers) that are in range.
-Select the wireless access point you wish to use.
-If the access point requires a security key, you will need to enter this key in. This key is set when you first configure your wireless router.
-Select "OK", then "Save Settings", and then "Yes".
At this point your Wii will now test the internet connection.

If you are using a Wired connection then you can connect the Wii directly to the router or modem and not use WiFi. Wii LAN Adapters are sold separately. If you have the LAN Adapter, follow the steps above up to the point were you select a connection type. You will select "Wired" instead of "Wireless. The Wii will now test your internet connection.

I hope this guide has helped you connect your Wii to the internet. Enjoy!

Regards,

    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.

    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.

    INTERNET CONNECTION


    To connect the Wii to the Internet you will need a wireless router in your home. Otherwise, you have to buy Wii lan adapter to connect it with an ethernet cable.
    To connect, go to Wii settings, then Internet, then Connection settings, then Connection 1.
    Then click wireless connection and then let the Wii search for a wireless access point (a wireless router).
    When your router appears on the list select it.
    If your router has a key, then you have to enter it.
    Press OK and you are finished.

    Connecting to internet


    if you really can't connect,try to start setting up again the internet settings/connection from scratch.make sure your router is working fine and you haven't changed anything on it including firmware upgrades.your router setting must be such that it's allowed to accept your wii to connect.if your router has either wep or wpa password,this should be the same one you need to key in on your wii internet setting.say you have wpa,most likely you need to select wpa (AES) on your wii internet setting.finish the wii internet set-up,your wii should be able to scan your router's ssid and connect to it.no guarantees,hope this helps.

    What do i need to get internet on my nintendo wii


    All you need is a wireless router. The Wii comes ready w/ WiFi. We installed a Linksys WRT54G2 router and hard wired to one sons xbox and Wii connects via WiFi. The router was about $45.00 @ Best Buy.

    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.
