    Oh wiki, how useful. You were right, the wireless range is a tad different between the two, but the frequency is the same.

    I believe the problem is with WPA TKIP. I'm not able to connect with TKIP as well. Did you give WPA AES a try?

    Only Connects when Using B Only Mode

    I was struggling for the past day to get my Wii to connect and finally found that setting my Netgear WGR614 wireless router to "B" only mode did the trick. I have never had a problem connecting a laptop to my wireless network in the past 2 years in "G and B" mode and I tried what I thought was everything to get the connection right - double checking my WEP code, disabling the WEP encryption, etc and always getting a 51330 error. Finally after reading thru this thread thought I'd give "B" only mode a shot and it worked - shouldn't have but it did.

    i am having the same problem, mixed mode works just fine, but wireless g doesn't work alone. I would think the Wii is wireless b only, but on the Nintendo customer support pages they seem to imply the Wii has 802.11g too.

    Check number 4

    I have a problem with G mode only as well. Here's Nintendo's official response:

    Hello,

    First, I can confirm that the Wii console is not a 802.11b only device, despite the claims you're hearing from the internet. Forums and sites like the one you reference are where people go when they're having problems, but you never hear from the people who aren't having problems because they're too busy playing.

    As you didn't say which brand and model router you're using, or provide the specific error/error code, I'm unable to troubleshoot your connection issues. If you have tried all of the troubleshooting options listed on our site with no success, we would like to speak with you directly. At your earliest convenience, please call 1-800-255-3700. Our representatives are available between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time, seven days a week.

    Wireless-G Working on Linksys WRT54GX4

    I was also having problems connecting to my Linksys WRT54GX4 router. For awhile I was only running successfully in mixed mode, but I then decided to tweak a few of my router settings and was successful in connected to my G-only network after changing two settings.

    First, I set my wireless channel to 1 as was recommended on Nintendo's support site (they suggested using either 1 or 11). Second, I disabled the "Adaptive Channel Expansion" feature. That's what worked for me. Hope it helps.
