I have had my Wii for about a year, and it rocks Out Loud.
I also enjoy the internet. Alot. I have DSL at home, spiced with a Netgear router & topped off with an Apple Airport Express mini-router (Powerlined to the Netgear router) for my bedroom... Had that setup going on for about 2-3 years...
Anyway, only recently did I decide to put my chocolate in my peanut butter(!) and get my Wii online. Started out great -- connected to my Netgear(main) router no prob, bought the browser & watched Fantasia Barrino's Idol performance on YouTube, on the big screen... wow.
Then, Sh*t started gettin' weird...
Came home one evening, Netgear is not servicing any machine connected to it. Okay.. happens sometimes... unplugged the router & replugged it; no problem.
...then it happened then next day... and the next... and the next!! Everytime, when I arrived home in the evenings, router is not sending out a signal! Trip the power on it, and it works fine that night, all through the night until the morning... then, sometime between the time & leave and return from work... no internet.
Also, over the weekend, it did it again, as the &^#* hotel I was in had no Adult Swim(!), and when I tried to hook up the laptop & access my SlingBox at home to get my fix of Family Guy and ATHF, no connection -- therefore, the wired connections on the Netgear were affected as well.
Laid out Gremlin Traps (KFC chicken wings in glue traps) but caught nuttin...
So, I rerouted the Wii to connect to my Apple Extreme last night, and as usual everything was fine... When I got home this evening, Netgear router was working fine.. but the Apple Router was NOT! Reset the Apple router and it was fine again.
I then determined that the wii needs to be un-internettd' for now; in the process of doing so, I unintenionally set it back to the Netgear router (went Amber when I turned the Wii off) and it caused the Netgear to cancel connections again!
What is Going On??
