Change old internet code and put in a new one.


You do it the same way as you would when you put the code in the first time.

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...
Enter in the router password
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 will appear...
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...
click yes...
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.

Gettin hooked up to the net with wii


Getting internet set up on the Wii is very simple. Basically all you need is a wireless router. (If not, then there is a way. If this is the case then just tell me.) Click on the Wii option on the Home page, and then go to setting. From there, search for the Internet, then click on it. You can then add a new connection, search for you wireless connection, and then run a test. At this point, you can try using this with an online game, or with the Internet Channel.

How do i connect to the internet with my nintendo


Hi there!
You're trying to connect your Wii to the internet to play online? Here is my step-by-step guide from a Wii forum:
First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/

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.

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 will appear...

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...

click yes...

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 may get 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.smile1.gif

Hope that helps!

Connection Comcast router to wii


Error Code: 52021 What to do will depend on how you are connecting your Wii console. Please use the info below that describes how you are connecting.
    Connecting directly to a modem:
  1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
  2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
  3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.

  4. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these exactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
  5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE. Contact your ISP for more assistance.

    Connecting to a router:
  1. Ensure that an Ethernet Cable is running from the WAN or Internet Port on the router to the modem. Power cycle the modem by unplugging it from the electrical outlet, waiting a moment, and then plugging it back in.
  2. Power off the Wii console, and insert the Wii LAN Adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.
  3. Run an ethernet cable from the Wii to a numbered port on the router.
  4. Power on the Wii console, and run a connection test through the Wii console's online settings.
  5. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's settings on your PC:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection, except for the IP address. The IP address needs to be different. Add 10 to the IP address and use that number in the Wii console's settings.

Wii


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!
