Question about Nintendo Wii Console
We need help on getting internet on our wii!!!!
Here is a step by step guide to set it up. First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site:
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
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
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...
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
