    if trying to connect wireless from a router are you finding the access point in your wii settings?

    Are you sure that your router broadcasts a wireless signal or that its receiving a signal ?
    If there is a wireless signal being broadcast then your wii will pick it up
    Aren you connected wirelessy to any device ?

    I've got this computer in the same room as the Wii. But this computer gets its internet through a wireless network to another computer. So I think it receives and sends information. :S

    this may be a silly question, but have you just tried to run a connection test or have the wii search for your wireless network?

    the worst that can happen is it finds nothing, and you'll end up needing to buy the WiFi adapter, and at best it'll find your wireless network, or (in my case) find another one in a house/apartment nearby and you can simply scalp their connection!

    so if you haven't already, just go into your connection settings and run a search!

    Cheers and good luck!

    I got mine for about $40US, and it simply plugs into a USB hub on your computer, no other hardware or wireless capability necessary.

    so thats like 60-70 AU dollars so maybe I'll keep trying to wireless it.
    Would i be able to manually connect it?

    EDIT: I tried manually doing it but it sais that it cant detect my SSID, which i put in correctly.

    Well if your computer is connected wirelessly and your wii is in the same room I cant understand why it wont find any acces point !
