    I have a linksys router but i dont use WEP, i personally dont need WEP as most people in my area have a wireless connection , but its rare for someone to hack into your connection. All they can do is use your connection which isnt really that bad,unless you dont like people using your network. You do know you can enter your WEP key when your wii finds your connection. Im presuming thats what you need.

    Its better to have it protected so that free runners don't leech off of you, although I can understand your position.

    yah ... ISP's are charging for the amount we use... so i cant really afford to let others piggyback off us... but yah.. what i meant is that we cant even use WEP (at least what Nintendo says caz i can't connect) but hey.. it is kinda like a hit and miss thing.. sometimes it connects.... mostly it doesn't

    Have you checked that your router is set to channel 1, 6 or 11. It connects much better on any one of these channels.

    So they charge for all traffic in and out on an always on connection? Dosen't that make some things hard to do? What if you run a program that requires an interent connection 24/7, wouldn't that get expensive? Anyway, yeah, somebody piggybacking your connection is never good definately if your connection is like mine where I run a file server

    It really depends what that program is doing, if its downloading huge data then yes it would get expensive But somthing like wiiconnect24 doesn't use that much.

    that is why im glad my ISP gives unlimited upload and download. personally i dont care if someone uses my connection as long as it isnt anything illegal or anything that takes up lots of bandwidth. however every one of my neighbors have high speed so it doesnt matter :P

    well the ISP doesn't charge per byte.. but what they do is limit your speed if you go over... you should check with your ISP too caz they advertise it as "unlimited" caz they do give you as much as you need.. they just restrict your speed if they need.....

    and just an update.. i kept the WEP and it connected to nintendo's wifi thingy.... i played a game of tetris... yaya (got pwned..... ) but i still can't play MarioKart DS.... it like stays that the searchiing for player screen.. occationally i get this blinking thing but then it goes away after a while
