Where do i find the ssid on the wii

You have set up your Wii and are anxious to begin playing games.
But when testing your Wi-Fi connection to your Wii, you are receiving errors.
The error is "Your wireless network is not within range or incompatible to the Wii" What should you do?
One of your first steps is to check your SSID. An SSID, or service set identifier, is a 32-character code that specifies the access point of your wireless network.
The SSID also acts as the name of your wireless network.
This ID is defined on your network's router software.
The SSID for your Wi-Fi network and the Wii settings must be in sync for the Wii to function properly.

Go to your computer and log in to your Internet router settings.
Find the wireless settings information for your router.

Locate the SSID field. This field displays the name of your wireless network.
Carefully write the SSID on a piece of paper.
Make sure that you are copying the SSID exactly as displayed in the SSID field.
Pay attention to capital letters, spaces or special characters.
Go to your Wii.
On the Wii main menu, click on the "Wii" button in the lower left corner.
The Wii Settings screen is displayed.

Click on the "Wii Settings" icon on the right side of the screen.
Click on the blue arrow on the right side of the screen to move to page 2 of the Wii Settings options.
Scroll down and click on the "Internet" button.
Click on "Connection Settings."
Click on your wireless connection.
Click on "Manual Setup."
Click the blue arrow to find the SSID field.
Carefully compare the SSID entered in the Wii's SSID Settings field to the SSID that you wrote down from your router settings.
If these SSIDs are not identical, change the Wii SSID to match your network's SSID.
If the SSIDs match, the SSID is not the problem with your Wii setup.
Contact Nintendo Technical Support for additional troubleshooting information.

To connect two wii consoles

Hi arbazfar,

First off, you will need a Wi-Fi connection to hook-up your consoles.
- Select the Wii logo (lower-left corner of the main menu)
- Select one of the available selections and confirm the "WIRELESS CONNECTION" option.
- Select the "SEARCH FOR ACCESS POINT" ( the Wii console will now look for the best local Wi-Fi connections available).
- Pick your preferred access point and then save your settings (Wii will then test the connection and may ask you to perform an update - just press "YES")
-Go to the "ADDRESS BOOK" (from the Wii main menu under the Wii Message Board). You should see a Friend Code on Page 1. Share your code with a friend you wish to connect to.
-Once you already have the code, press "REGISTER" in the Address Book, select the WII OPTION and enter the Friend code.
For more readings regaring this matter, you may go to the attached link:
All the best to you. Hope to hear positive results.

How do i get my wii fi to work on my ipod touch?

Enable "SSID Broadcast" to get network to appear on iTouch. Also note that your "password" to modify router settings is not the same as your security (or WEP, WPA) "key".

Cant connect wii to internet

The unit can connect to the Internet by utilizing its 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, which is built in, for wireless connections or via a USB-to-Ethernet adaptor for DSL connections.
For your wireless connection or Wi-Fi, the 802.11b Wi-Fi has a data rate of 11 Mbits per second and has an indoor range of 30m or approximately 98 ft. The 802.11g has the same indoor range, however the data rate is at 54 Mbits per second. If you have an existing wireless connection or are in a Wi-Fi hotspot, the unit will connect to your wireless connection automatically out of the box. If you do not have a wireless network, however, you will need to have your wireless network subscription done or set-up first. Once you have wireless Internet access, you then search for your access point, put in your security settings and you’re good to go. It would also be advisable to have a wireless router for this so that you won’t have to shuttle the connection between your PC and your Wii. wi-fi-usb-connector.thumbnail.jpgAnother option would be to connect your Wii via the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. This accessory allows Nintendo Wii users who do not have an existing Wi-Fi connection or a compatible Wi-Fi network to create one through their broadband or DSL connected computer. This is inserted into your existing computer’s USB port and the Wi-Fi USB Connector acts as a wireless access point for the Wii. This allows the user access to the internet and to play Wi-Fi Connection games from Nintendo Online.
nintendo-wii-lan-adapter.thumbnail.jpgFor your DSL connection, however, you will need to have quite a few things. You can use a WII LAN adapter to connect your Wii to your DSL modem. You can also use a router so that you can use your PC and your Wii at the same time. With the LAN Adapter though, to use or plug in the Wii, you must disconnect your PC. This can be quite tedious since you will have to plug in and out your PC and your Wii every time you need to use one or the other. A LAN Adapter is fairly cheap, but if you get a router, your PC and your Wii can go online at the same time, saving you the hassle of connecting one or the other when you need them. You can then hook up the existing ethernet cords to the back of the router and connect it to the Wii via a USB 2.0 cord.

i hope this helps

Wii wi-fi

You need to go through the wireless setup on the Wii settings page to ensure that the security settings are coorrect. You may also need to check the placement of the Wii because if you keep it in a TV cabinet it might not be able to get the signal.

If you go to wii options on the bottom left of the wii menu, hit wii settings and then keep moving to the right until you see the option "internet," click on it and select connection settings and search for an acces point. If you can't find one that is unsecure, go back and buy a Nintendo wi-fi usb connecter, (I got mine @ walmart), and then install the software into your computer and follow your instruction manual. then connect with the Nintendo wi-fi usb connectewr on the connections screen, then you should be good to go!

Nintendo wii

This may go beyond the factory settings, (completely renewed). Goto the wii options menu and click wii settings, and go all the way to the end and click format wii system memory, and read the description to make sure you want to do this and then click format if you want to restart or go back. Note: this is the only icon on wii settings menu that illuminates yellow while the others illuminate blue.
