Next to your clock on your notebook is there an icon that looks like a computer monitor with a radio signal to the right of it?

If so move the mouse over to it and press view available wireless networks.

Im not sure how to scan for it on the Wii. I would check to see if there is a scan funtion on it to look for it.

Does a Wii require a wireless network adaptor or is it built in?

    Is the wireless turned on the notebook?

    Its been awhile since I've have used that router.

    What are the gateway setting on your computers wired to your router?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 13, 2008

    Press the reset button and hold it down for 10 seconds. It's located in the back of the router.

    You need to find out what the gateway is to turn on the wireless settings.

    To do this go to the control panel. Select network. Find the icon for the network connection. Double click on the icon. Press the support tab. The default gateway setting is the address to your router.

    Type that address into internet explorer. Type in the admin user id and password and enable wireless networking.

    You can scan in the router admin to see what wireless connections are on right now. If your Wii is hooked up, it should display on the screen.

    Make sure mac filtertering is turned off.

Its saying my wireless internet is connected but when i plugged the internet cord into the router, it doesnt work anymore! its been like that for about a month & a half now.

Make sure all the wires are connected properly. 1.-Unplug your modem and router from the power supply. Wait 1 minute. 2.-Plug your modem back to the power and wait for all the lights to stop flashing. 3.-Plug your router back to the power and wait for the lights to stop flashing
Follow these steps and your internet should be working again!

The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....

Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

The lights are on but the linksys is not working

Certainly if the conection directly from the router to the computer is not working then the wireless won't work. So that's where I'd start. Cable connections could be an issue. The connection without the router works I assume. Make sure you are connected correctly. You need ethernet cabling to the ethernet, networking connections to and from the internet device to the computer and into and out of the router. When you get the direct router connections working you can solve your wireless problems.
