I can help you this is not a problem. 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 don't know where to locate the network key for my belkin g wirerless router so I can connect to the internet


connect any one of the computers to the router with a ethernet cable. open internet explorer, clear out the address bar on the top, and type 192.168.2.1. when u hit enter, u'll get a router set up utility. in this page u'll have an option -security- below "wireless". when u click security, it'll ask for a password, leave it blank and hit submit. on the next window, u will find the password there.

How to use my Cnet CWR-854 Router as a wirerless antenna for pc.


You can't really use a router to connect to another router, you can sometimes use them as an "Extender" for range, but not as a WiFi card, they simply aren't made to operate that way.

I CAN CONNECT WITH NO TROUBLE TO THE INTERNET THROUGH MY ROOTER HOWEVER WHEN I TRY TO CONNECT THROUGH MY WIRELESS WRT54GS I CANNOT I GET A MESSAGE SAYING THAT IT CAN NOT FIND THE SERVER OR INTERNET...


what exactly are you trying to connect to the router? They usually have default passwords, such as 'admin'.
If not go to 192.168.1.1 on your computer when connected to the router, and leave the username blank and the password as 'admin'.
Then go to the top tab and change or remove the wireless password. If you mess anything up, just click the reset button on the outside of the box for 20 secs.

Lap top problem


Wireless network adapters require an associated wireless receiver (such as a wireless router or wireless access point) to recieve the radio signals from the adapter and eventually route them to a wire and in you case it would be the wire providing internet services to your desktop computer. If there is no wireless receiver there is no device to convert the radio communications of the wireless adapter and rout those signals to the internet.

I hope this helps.
