You should not be using WEP, it is not secure. If you can, you should use WPA2.
To get your password/key, log on to your router / wireless/ security and set/find your password/key

SOURCE: I can't unlock the Wep

Hi Ben

If unlocking by using web interface is not changing, that can be reason that NVRAM is not registering the new value. Best thing to perform reset. There is a pinlike tiny button behind the router you can firmly press and release it. It will set all the values to default including the security (security will be disabled). After that you may change the settings accordingly. If you need further assistance please post,

Good Luck

SOURCE: My Linksys will not connect to my WII

Well the first thing is that you have WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. So first you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router. Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's web site. Connect your computer to the router. Open the router page. Click on Administration tab. Just below administration you will find firmware upgrade subtab. If you click on it, you will find the browse option. Browse the file that you have downloaded from the web site. and Click upgrade.
For WII, you will also need to change the MTU to 1365 and open some port numbers on the router.

Cannot connect to Internet Error code 220602


Hello there!

There are a couple possible options to fix your problem that may work:
  • Temporarily disabling WEP encryption on the router.
  • Set up another internet connection profile on the Wii (w/o encryption key)
  • Select the User Agreement on the Wii.
  • Re-set the WEP encryption key on the router.
  • Switch back to the internet connection profile on the Wii (w/encryption).
I would try all of these and hopefully your problems will not persist. Good luck!

Can't connect WII to netflix. Ger error code51330


Hi,

This error usually indicates that the WEP key you set on your Wii is not the correct one to gain access to your router.

When you setup a router for wireless internet, you usually set a WEP key. This is basically a security key(password) that you set so any device that wants to use your internet, has to enter correctly.

If you know your router security key, go into your Wii network settings and make sure it is entered correctly. I wrote a article on how to configure your Wii for internet. Click here to read it.

If you do not know the security key of your router, then read my other article by clicking here. This article will go over how to find the router security key.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Regards,
G33k

Cannot connect my wii to my wireless internet


i dont know if you need a guide on how to set it up or a trouble shooting guide. here is a trouble shooting guide and if you dont know what to do let me know and i will post a step by step guide on how to setup the wii on the internet. This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting: Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES)
If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering: From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model). If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings: On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.

Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

I am trying to get my nintendo wifi connection on my game to work and i have half of it done but i need a WEP key and i dont know my WEP key i dont know what it is.


wep key is another word for password. when you set up your home network who ever set it up set it up with a password to make it more secure. which is a good thing security wise but bad when trying to gt your gaming device to connect.... this site should walk you step by step in setting up your wii and also getting a wep key. just start with first time setup link

Can't connect Wii. WEP key is correct.


either your internet provider does not support the wii or vice versa. another possible problem is that you have the WEP strength set wrong. IE: having 64 bit and treating it as 128 bit.
