Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

I am trying to set up my wii to the internet! I have wireless internet. These are the steps I have taken: -I pressed the "wii options" button on the bottom left corner of the main menu and selected "wii settings". -I scrolled to page 2 of "wii system settings" and selected "internet" -I selected "connection settings" and then "connection 1" -I selected "wireless connection" and then "search for an access point" -It came up with my airport and I entered my password. The wii told me that the information I had entered was incorrect. I checked to make sure it was WEP and that I had entered the correct password but it still won't let me through. Please help!

Try disabling the authentication on your wi-fi then see if the Wii will connect. If the Wii associates then you know there was something wrong with the settings.

This Nintendo page gives step-by-step directions for setting up the Internet connection on your Wii.

The bottom of the page lists a couple of error codes.
