Question about Computers & Internet
A. Do you have the SSID for your Linksys router as just "linksys"? That name is so common that someone nearby might have set up a new router and left it the same name as well... and your Wii is trying to connect to THEIR "linksys" instead of yours. Try changing the name broadcast by your router to something else, then try connecting using that new name.
B. Be sure you are typing in the WEP or WPA passphrase correctly, it is SO easy to mess up one simple letter in the code and nothing will work. I've gotten dozens of service calls for iPods and games where the customer said their code didn't work, but worked for me when I got there. I know, it's frustrating, just be SURE you have the code 100% correct.

Don't know how to find your router's password?
Look for a sticker on the bottom of your router. Many routers provided by Internet service providers have their default password located on a sticker on the bottom of the router.
