    wii picks up access point, but doesnt connect

    I am having trouble connecting my wii to the net. My wii picks up my access point, but when it goes to do a connection test it fails. I get error codes 52030, 51330 and 51331. Whats wrong? I got my wii's MAc address from "console information" if i need to use that...

    Hi

    you only need the Wii's MAC address if you have MAC address
    filtering / access control enabled on your access point.

    tbh, having MAC filtering enabled is a good security measure
    and will help to keep your network secure when used in conjunction
    with WPA-TKIP (or AES) encryption.

    have a look in your access point settings to see if you have got
    MAC filtering / access control enabled...if so, simply enter the Wii's
    MAC address into the "allowed" list.....you might also need to ensure
    that the MAC filter rule is set to "allow" listed MAC's to connect and not
    to "deny" them.

    The short version of this post is how do I get the MAC address of my Wii?

    About 2 weeks ago, we were in Portland visiting my son and I FINALLY found a Wii for sale. We hooked it up at his place to try it out. Some where in the setup process, the Wii MAC address appeared on screen. Since he has a wireless network going (WPA) and MAC filtering, I interfaced the Wii with his network (including MAC) with no problem. We all had a ball playing with the Wii over the weekend. Then my wife decided to give him my Wii and so I became just another Wii-less person determined to get another one.

    Back home a few days later, I did score another NEW Wii. I also have WPA screening on my home system. However, in setting up my new Wii, no where did I see the MAC address of my Wii appear. So, in order to interface my Wii with my home network, I had to disable MAC protection. I realize that MAC filtering is the easiest to hack into, but coupled with WPA, it's an extra protection against someone hacking into my home network. So, how do I get my MAC number to appear on screen like my first Wii?

    I'm starting to think some Wii's have MAC filtering and some don't.

    I'm having the same problem, but 1 question, how do I access my router options, all I know is what my IP is.

    ^ go type your ip address in your internet broswer. there u go, all your router options. if it sks for a username and password put in "admin" in both fields.

    eh?

    i don't believe thats the answer at all....maybe if you were connecting a DS
    but, the Wii uses either 802.11b (11Mbps) or 802.11g (54Mbps) and from
    what settings can be tweaked on the Wii, i can't see an option to change
    between the two protocols...the only way to do that is to change the
    output on the router / access point.

    tbh, it appears that the Wii is a bit finicky when it comes to connecting to
    access points / wireless routers. as i mentioned in another post, i have a
    linksys wrt54gs (54Mbps) wifi router which will not accept the Wii, so to
    get around it i have disabled wifi on that router and connected another
    linksys wrt55ag to it with wifi enabled so that it works as an access point.

    So, how do I get my MAC number to appear on screen like my first Wii?
    so you've gone into the Wii options>internet settings>console information screen?

    that's where the MAC address is for the wifi interface built into the Wii.
