    "every access point"...are you connecting to your wifi router or someone else's? One possibility where a wifi connection used to work but now doesn't is interference. If you have another nearby wifi connection it may be on the same channel as you. Try switching the channels to a unique one to see if the connection improves. I think that for the linksys WRT54 wireless routers channels 1 and 11 are preferred if you're in mixed mode (b/g support).

    believe me, i've experimented with and adjusted everything on the WBR1310 i'm running with. ive even hopped onto neighbors' connections and remotely adjusted their router settings, with the same result. it worked just fine before, and ive got cordless phones, wireless xbox live, a laptop, and wireless headphones all working fine with the wii, before now. evidently this is going to remain my problem.

    That my friend is.. Illegal! Just because their personal network is unencrypted does not mean you have the right to connect. Unless it is a dedicated Hotspot (Hotels, Restaurants, Coffee Shops, etc) or unless you have the owners permission, I would advise against it.

    Build a parabolic booster and place it flat against the left side of the wii to get a better signal. The wifi antennas are on the bottom right hand side in the wii, and the top left middle of the wii. I did that a while ago and it worked great. Now I use one of those $3 ebay china made 802.11g usb adapters connected to a 3 foot usb extension. This is just a simple but effective solution to get a better signal.

    i know. my net is faster than anyone elses, so i'd have no reason to use theirs except for experimental purposes, anyway.
