    Wow, didnt know i had wireless!!!

    Well guys i didnt want to start another "cant connect thread" , but what the heck....So i just realized my Telus 2WIRE modem has a single wireless set up (+the 4 ethernet ports), so anyway i tried to do the "Official Wii Wireless Internet Connection Guide" and i get to where i have to choose from a list of nearby access points and i click on the one that is green (with a lock) says 2WIRE677. So i click on that and it asks for a password or key...so what do i do guys? Also i have a wired set up and it worked great and all that but i unpluged it and not i cant get a connection again...it has the mac addy but the lan mac addy is not in there. So how do i go about hookin this up again.

    try the online manual from the manufacturers website.

    you have to go into your router (with a web browser you have to type in a http:// number)
    type in password
    then find the wireless section and setup the router or find the password
    the manual shoudl fill you in on the details. if you get stuck stop back in. i've never heard of that brand, so idk much on the internal router software.

    Well depending on how your router is setup, you need to go to the setup page, and configure the wireless security. A lot of manufacturers use http://192.168.1.1 but not all, and it's possible you or someone else reconfigured it.

    Some common advice:

    Write down your SSID (wireless name, which is CaSe sensitive), then generate and write down or remember a wireless access key for either a WEP or WPA secured network.

    Make sure your router is handing out IP addresses, which it should if DHCP is enabled.

    Last, make sure MAC address filtering isn't enabled, or if it is, make sure you add your Wii's mac address to the white-list.

    search for your router's manufacturer or the product model #

    with internet explorer you type in the address bar:

    for linksys
    http://192.168.1.1

    for dlink
    http://192.168.0.1

    ect...
    your router may be different

    If it's asking for a password from the Wii Consoles side, then you Wireless Network has WEP enabled encryption. Your manufacturer should say in the manual or on the underside of the router for SSID and Hex key (password) is. 2WIRE677 seems correct.

    Well with my 2Wire I just type home in the web browser and it takes me to my modem's settings. Mine is also wireless and my WEP key is under printed under my modem.
    Maybe yours is the same.

    You have to change the WEP Encryption key, thats your password to attach to this wifi router from the Wii. It's probably using something like 64-bit depth. When you change the password you have to follow a code 0-9 A-F, you can only use those ranges of numbers & letters to create your key. It should look something like this. A3:B1:37:01:AF <-- DO NOT USE THIS. Make your own. It can be any combination of 0-9 A-F characters.
