Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Help....wii is recognising my wireless connection. it is security blocked so add in the WPA2 secure key/password, but will still not connect. frustrating me.
There are three possibilites
1. The most failsafe encryption for the Wii is WEP. It probably has issues to confirm the encryption code
2. Your Wireless Router is not compatible. For some reason Wii hates Wireless N and pre-N routers. If you have one of them, make sure that you turn on the Wireless G compatible mode.
3.Your Wii connects but it is unable to gain IP address from the router's DHCP (automated ip assignment). So, you'd have to enter the IP and default gateway by hand on your Wii console.
You'll find those info from your Router's properties page.
It's a bit complicated i know... I hope I helped a bit.
