Your problem is related to the router. If you're connected via cable (ethernet) to your router, then you won't be using the wireless... What is your router? Post the question in Routers.

I have a wii, and it is asking mefoe a security key or password. how do i find it


If you only have that modem, and no wireless router, the Wii isn't going to hook into your internet.
If you do have a router, the password is the one you need to hook up wireless with a computer or laptop, and would have been set up by you.

Hi, Our modem seems to work fine when plugged directly into a computer (we get internet okay), but if we plug it into anything else it won't get internet. We've tried two different routers and a Wii and...


Hello,
Without further information, my best guess is that your modem has the same IP address as the common IP address for routers and probably the Wii. Most wireless routers have the address 192.168.1.1
Try connecting a computer using a hard line (a network cable) to your router and type in this address, it will most likely come up. If it does change it's static address to 192.168.1.12 (actually any number behind the last period above 1 and under 255.). Also set its gateway to 192.168.1.1 to access your modem. (Also in the router settings which are found by typing the address mentioned above, 192.168.1.1) Be sure to note this new address if you want to access your router without resetting it and using a hard line again. The Wii should automatically pick up signal from the wireless router. If for some reason you want to switch between the Wii and a Router by way of hardline, you must contact the maker of your cable modem (or cable company) and find out what the IP address is in order to access it's settings (the same way; by typing it's IP address into a browsers address bar.) By setting the modem to have a different IP there would be no conflict with the other products which (rightly) have the IP address of 192.168.1.1 as a default.
Hope this helps!

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)
