do you have option for ethernet connection in your room?
when you say you try 6 different connections, do you mean 6 different SSIDs the the wii discovered?
do you fail to connect all together?
post your error codes and symptoms
I've been scouring the internet for sources of tech support on using wireless internet on the Wii, and every single thing I find says "router this, router that." Well I'm in a college dorm, and I can't do anything to the router. It isn't my router to mess with, it's the dorm's.
I know my friends and I have had absolutely no problems using computers, 360s, and PS3s with the school's wireless internet connection, so why is my Wii presenting problems? Any ideas at all? Is there anything I can do to my Wii to get it to work?
It's able to detect like 6 different connections, and I've tried them all, but the connection test invariably fails.
you basically have 2 options (if you dont have a hardline to your dorm)
1) take it to the networking/IT people at your college. they will be able to fix you up. the college network needs a a name and password to connect. they usually set it up or give you one and i dont think the wii has that kind of abillity.
2) connect your wii to the internet through your pc/laptop. this can be a challenging process. i've never done it. you can wire it to it with the LAN adapter and an ethernet cable. or you can get a wifi dongle (not the nintendo 1, it's no longer made) and set it up on your pc/laptop. after it's setup you can connect your wii to it.
i'd go with option 1
