    Well it can be but, the MAC address for the router is for communication between devices attached to your network. But you can always try it. If it still does not work, log back into the router again, and look for WEP Security/Settings/Encryption, something similar.

    Which LAN Adapter are you trying to use with your Wii ?

    You can probably configure your WEP or WPA key to be your MAC address, but they are not in no means the same thing. Think of your WEP key as the password to the router, and the MAC address as... well the address/location. To get into the router (connect) you have to give the Wii (or whatever wireless device you are trying to connect to the router) the password to get access to the router and it's network.

    EDIT: Wait, you're using the LAN adapter? If you are connecting via CAT5 (Ethernet cable) you shouldn't have to mess with any of these security settings. A device hardwired to the router should receive an IP address automatically (if the router is configured as a DHCP server) and connect by itself.

    No No....I Had my wii hooked up to my modem via and ethernet cord and a nintendo (white) lan adapter with the little blue lights. But if i unplug the cord, it its hard as hell to get to connect to it and i cant remember how i did it before...it was a fluke or something

    Well anyway i just realized that the Telus 2WIRE modem has a wireless thingamabob so i dont want to use the ethernet lan adapter set-up if i could be wireless on the Wii. So i will try those things you guys said above and i will get back to you if i need help.

    Thanx alot
    Chris

    We can't see it because we don't have your router. Just try to explain where you're stuck.

    Im stuck on the screen that wants me to put in the password or access code on the Wii to find an access point or somthing like that...ive tried alot of the numbers and all that stuff and differnet ways like with and without the ":" in between the letters and numbers. I guess i just dont get what i have to do.

    What exactly do i type in and is it all case sensitive and have to us the ":" between every two letters /numbers.

    Yes i suck sorry!

    Well, like I said earlier if you have a 2Wire modem, like you said, look under the modem and try to put in the numbers in (). That should be your WEP key which is probably what you need to enter into your Wii.

    Trust me, I also own a 2Wire and once had to do the same thing.

    Edit: The link you gave us doesn't work because we don't have your router, so that doesn't help.

    Yes, when you're typing in the WEP Key (password), DO NOT put the ":"
