    Hi

    i have that model router. my Wii will not connect to it either.

    i've had to use a WRT55AG (wifi router) as an access point
    for the Wii to connect to.

    go to the linksys site to see if there's an upgraded firmware
    for your variant of the router.

    there are also other firmware versions available from people who
    have modified the original linksys firmware.
    mines a v.5.x so i can't flash it with one of the "hacked" firmwares
    which are available for this model of router.

    if you're unsure of the version you're using, have a look at the
    bottom of it for version details.

    for indepth info re: linksys routers, head over to:-

    So is your connection working now that you have got those updates?

    Okay, well do you have to do anything on your computer to make sure that your Router accepts the Wii connection? Like do i have to go into my Router setting and put it some Wii number and have it so it safely shares the connection?

    no, as mentioned in my reply, i never actually got the Wii to "work" wirelessly
    via the WRT54GS. in the end, i turned off the WiFi broadcast and then hooked
    up a WRT55AG to the WRT54GS and used the 55AG as the wireless receiver,
    in other words, a glorified Wireless Access Point. the reason i don't use the
    WRT55AG as a router is the fact that it has issues with my ISP settings and
    as such will not accept the IP address issued by my ISP.

    with regards to your router settings, it will depend upon what type of security
    measures you have implemented. if you're using MAC address filtering, the
    Wii's MAC address will need to be entered into the routers MAC access list.
    if you're using WPA or WEP encryption, these "keys" will need to be entered
    into the Wii's wireless config settings.

    basically, if you're not using any MAC / WPA encryption, then by rights the
    Wii *should* just connect when you browse for a wireless access point
    and find your router.

    If you can never get the connection to work just buy the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector. You connect it to a USB port and install the software. Your Wii/DS will recognize the connector as an access point.
    Here is the link to the product: http://store.nintendo.com/webapp/wcs...etCurrencyView

    Okay so i entered the Wii's MAC address into the Routers access list and i am using WEP, so where do i find the Wii's wireless config setting? And should the Auto-Obtain IP Address be selected as Yes or No when you go into the Wii Settings?

    i'm a little confused...are you attempting to use you router
    and the USB wifi adaptor?

    with regards to accessing the Wii config, it seems you already
    have seeing as you've mentioned "auto-obtain" in your reply.

    leave everything as auto obtain and try to connect.
