I know you said you have tried holding the button to turn off the console, but try holding it when you turn the console on until it turns it self off again?

The wii shopping channel wont open so i can download netflix


You may need to update your wii console in order for you to get to the wii shop. Try a system update from the system menu and then try again with the wii shop. I hope this helps!

Tip

LOW WIRELESS SIGNAL STRENGTH


Sometimes you may get a false low signal strength indication, but here's something to try anyway.

Imagine if we lived in a society where all TV signals came in on the same channels.
If you are watching channel 11, but 3 other TV stations in your area are also broadcasting on channel 11 along with the one you want to watch, it takes a lot more effort to get the information you want from the one station you are trying to watch.

So lets say you and your TV station strike up a deal, and they move to channel 6...and nobody else in the area is on channel 6...great, now you can watch your program effortlessly.

Wireless can be like that, and most routers are factory configured to channel 11, which means there may be a lot of routers in your area on channel 11 besides you!
Look in your router manual or pdf guide or whatever instructions you have for your router, and change the wireless channel.
Most routers are accessed through your browser by putting in the address http://192.168.X.1 where X is either 0, 1 or 2. The login is almost always admin, and unless you changed it, either leave the password blank, or use the words admin or password as the password.
I have found in the past that you can go from poor signal with frequent disconnects, to full signal strength at the highest speed and no disconnects, just by choosing a better channel (and yes, I usually pick 6 first, and only try others if necessary).
This especially helps if the device you are trying to connect has an unsophisticated wireless component, such as a wireless printer.

The problem lies in the wireless connection. Either the wireless adapter on the game console, or with your wireless router. Although wireless internet makes it easier to get online and play, it is actually the worst choice for online gaming. this is due to the lag time in the signal relay to the router. Wired internet is the best choice for online gaming. If you can hook your console up to a wired internet connection, then I suggest you do that.

As long as your Wii can detect the "network" in your house, you can connect to the internet, and hook up to netflix wirelessly. Start your Wii and go to "wii options" in the lower left corner. Then click on Wii settings and then scroll to page two. Then click on "INTERNET". You will then go to Connection settings. From there choose wireless and let it find your router. You will need to enter the "passphrase" for the router, to connect. SAVE your settings and each time you start the Wii it will automaticly connect.

Your issue is possible due to an antenna or proximity of the devices to the router
There is a way to build an enhanced antenna extender online. This may assist you in not \

1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

Hooking up wireless router to ps3 to get internet thru TV


i believe what you mean is your connection to your ps3 not on your tv

actually i think ps3 has a built in wireless adapter unlike xbox360

things to remember:

-make sure that you use compatible routers

-distance of wireless router from ps3 may affect the signal of internet

-actually, some devices like microwave or chordless phone may also interfere with youre connection

-if you are using a direct modem connection, you may need to call your isp to check if the firmware of your modem is up to date

-there is more to life than games so try to do some sports if you are not able to connect ^_^


hope it helps

Just hooked up ps3 wirless , gaming is slow


if your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength.  However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there.  I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play.  I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect.  Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )
