Before posting: Note that my extent of knowledge about computers is I know what a IP address is, I have no Idea what a proxie is or anything like that, so explain throughly.

My Wii has been able to find my houses 2wire access point but it has 1 bar. When I test the service there is a error code. My friend told me something about putting something on a channel 1 or 11. Can someone tell me anything?

P.S. I have even tried literally right next to each other.
