    I have had very good luck with the Linksys Wireless G router. It's only like $50 now, and the Wii and DS both interact well with it.

    Note, Wii can handle WPA (which is fairly secure) but the DS can't, it can only handle WEP, which is less secure, but better than nothing.

    Using a Netgear wireless router here. Besides our Wii, we have two laptops, and a PSP, and DS using the router as well.

    Like someone stated, buy a Linksys Wireless-G, cheaper than the DLink and it is great, I use it and it works like a charm with my Wii.

    Look in profile for meaning to this flashy sig

    Linksys WRT54GS with SpeedBooster are really good, it does Wireless-G, Wireless-B, Wi-Fi and maybe some other things as well, they go up to 125m and cost around 30 here. I don't know the conversion but I'm guessing around $40-$50... somewhere around that price.

    My friend kept on showing off about how his NetGear router goes up to 400m and a week later he said it sucks because it kept on timing out...

    Please, when you don't know what the heck you are talking about, don't say anything. You are misleading people who otherwise won't know better.

    For the record: A wireless router is NOT faster than a wired router. In FACT, wireless networks are slower than wired. Only Wireless N is faster than wired, and that is only true when 1 or 2 devices are in use. Otherwise, WiFi is a wireless hub and therefore all devices share the total amount of bandwidth. Not to mention WiFi is never as fast as it's rating. So, Wireless-G, 52Mbps ends up being about 30Mbps at 20ft. With every wireless LAN, it's only about %60 the rated speed at 20-30 feet. So say you have 108Mbps wireless, you'll get 70Mbps. Now toss in that you have 2 devices so you divide the 70mbps in half (simplifying things here) such that each device only gets 35Mbps each. However, on a wired switched network, each device gets 100Mbps. Not to mention there's no interference from other wireless networks around your house/apartment.

    Now that may all sound like Wifi is not a good idea, but one doesn't have to run wires or have them laying around. So I use a wifi router as an access point (much cheaper than buying a wifi access point) and a switch for all my wired devices.

    Could you help ? I entered the SSID, and use WEP, but still cannot connect. Did you enter the SSID in ASCII or Hex? Also, where did you enable WPA/WEP and where can you find the Wii's MAC addr? Thanks.
