    Has anyone else tried to connect their Jap Wii to the Internet via WiFi outside of Japan?

    I currently live in Hong Kong and does not read Japanese.

    I believe I had entered my Network Name (aka. SSID) for my WLAN. I entered the WPA2 password for my WLAN. I entered the Wii's MAC address into my wireless router, but I am not able to connect.

    Does the WLAN channel have to be on Channel 1? Currently my WLAN is on channel 12 to avoid interference with other WiFi networks near me.

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    don't mod. It's one big force in hurting the game industry.

    I OWN:
    Wii, 2 nunchucks and wiimotes, Wii Sports, Zelda:TP, Madden 07, Wario Ware: Smooth Moves and Super Paper Mario!

    I've tried. I tried everything but even with no security and very basic settings it just doesnt want to work. (I'm in South Korea btw).
    When I check the router log, I can see that it actually gets an IP and tries to connect to a strange address shown as: "coet" and sometimes "coaaaaaa". These obviously dont exist, so it fails.
    My router is a Linksys WRT54GC v2, just so you know.

    Dear AlexDP,

    Thank you for sharing your experience.

    I too have tried to configure my router (Apple's "AirPort Extreme Base Station") to have no encryption, channels 1 and 11, broadcast of the Network Name (aka. "SSID"), but still with no success.

    My Japanese Wii does indeed have a mod chip (IC) installed.

    Update: I checked it out on a different network, with the same router, and it worked (apparently the network I checked it on first had some kind of firewall that was beyond my access). So Japanese Wii's can connect to the Japanese WiiConnect24 service, outside of Japan.

    Hi AlexDP,

    Thank you for the update.

    Does your Wii have any mod chip installed to allow it to play non-Japanese Wii games?

    Don't mention it I like helping others out, especially when they're in the same predicament as me
    As I mentioned, I live in South Korea, and unfortunately there are no English games available here and I (being a foreigner) am not allowed to get a credit card (even though I'm well above the age limit) so I cant import... So basically in order to be able to play English games I had mine modchipped (WiiKey), so now I can play NTSC US games on it (games I gladly would have bought along with a US console, if only I had access)

    So, shortly put, yes.

    Hi Alex,

    In that case, may be I need to compare more of your WiFi network settings to mine.

    1. Is your WiFi network configured as a closed network (aka. not broadcasting its Network Name)?

    2. Are you using encryption? WEP or WPA or WPA2?

    3. Do you have MAC address filtering enabled?

    4. Which channel is your WiFi network on? Channel 1 or 2 or 3, etc.

    Thanks!

    In the case where it worked and connected online the answers are:
    1. It's set to broadcast
    2. No encryption
    3. MAC filtering off
    4. Channel 9

    But, I'm pretty sure it would work with the following settings if I'd tested them on the alternate connection as I'm sure they worked on my original connection and only the final requests were blocked by the firewall mentioned before.
    1.SSID broadcast off
    2.Encryption WPA Personal (AES)
    3. MAC filtering enabled (and the Wii's MAC address allowed)
    4. Channel 1 - 6 - 11

    As I said these will all most likely work if there is no higher up firewall to block the Wii's requests.
