    Help! Can't connect my Wii

    I have a wireless router (DLINK DIR-615), I have 3 laptops connecting to the router fine, but when i go look for the access point on my Wii the connection does not show up. Any suggestions?

    Ps. Sorry, this is my first post so if there is lack of information i apologize in advance, instead just write what you need. Thanks

    do you have the SSID blocked? If so the Wii may not be able to find the access point. Also, how far is the Wii from the router and are there any potential sources of radio interference such as refrigerators between it and the router? If so, try moving the Wii closer to the router and see if it can find the signal then.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks in advance Dr. Mom

    My router is about 3 rooms away (not sure the range). And i am not too sure if the SSID is blocked, and if it were i would not know how to check. See i have a computer guy do all my router stuff but he wrote down my SSID, WEP, and all the router codes.

    I guess i could try moving the Wii closer maybe that would work

    Ok, if you can get a laptop to connect next to the Wii and the signal is strong that shouldn't be the issue.
    Next step (BTW, this only applies to a Windows PC). Hit your start button on the laptop next to the Wii and go to network connections. Right click on the wireless adapter and click on "View available wireless networks", if nothing shows your network SSID is hidden and you'll have to enter it manually on the Wii setup screen. Next, on the wii wireless set up screen enter the WEP passcode. Now try and connect and see how it goes.

    Hope this helps.

    I had the same problem before. I used the lan adpater and hooked it up to the router. Then it started working.
