    Hi everyone
    Just bought my first Wii console and over the moon. Just set it all up and then tried to connect to the Belkin Router I have (wirelessly)
    It finds the router no problem, i have clicked on my router to connect to and entered the WEP key correctly (several times :mad5: ) but it just won't connect!!!

    Does anyone have any ideas please

    Thanks in advance

    Craig

    Try a manuel setup. Make sure you got the right match on your router and wii. meaning the WPA-PSK.

    You may also check the range of your router. Is the Wii close to it or far away? Going through x number of walls/floors... etc.

    When you say you cannot connect, do you mean with a connection test or actually trying to get onto the Wii Store?

    The router is in the same room as the Wii (approx 4 metres away). I do a search for the access points, it finds my router then i choose that connection. It prompts me for the WEP key which i input then it tests the connection but comes up with an error message saying check settings :crazy:

    I have not tried to connect to the Wii store as I can't even get the connection :confused:

    Thanks

    DUDE I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM!!! I HAVE THE ANSWER!!
    you have to have a wireless USB adapter in your pc to recieve from the router,
    AND you must re fiddle with your pc's modem and phone and router's phone cables.

    I was trying to figure out for days why it wasnt working. i did this and it worked.
    AND I DID HAVE A BELKIN ROUTER

    That makes no sense. A router is stand-alone. Once it's been configured, it doesn't require a PC with a wireless adapter (or any PC at all) to function.

    Do you have Norton, McAfee, etc.?
    If so, go onto the "Ports" menu or whatever,
    and uncheck some until the Wii's Wi-Fi works,
    I forget which ones,
    virus check,
    and voila!

    As someone else mentioned, the PC on the network doesn't have anything to do with connecting a Wii directly to a wireless router.

    Wii -> WiFi Router -> DSL/Cablemodem/Etc.

    PC -> Router [WiFi or cable] -> DSL/Cablemodem/Etc.

    Man Belkin routers are the biggest peices of **** ever

    i recently bought one for my grandparents [i would never buy Belkin myself, i own a Linksys WRT-300N] and attempted to set it up

    that thing has SUCH problems with port forwarding and allowing connections through it's rediculous, unless u can find a quick solution i'd buy the network adapter [and even then it might not work :S]

    OK, well I have a Belkin router and everything works online, Fifa, Mario Strikers, messaging and all the channels except the internet channel, it does however have a slight delay when accessing them and online isn't really perfect but good enough.

    All sorted! Reset the router then restarted without a WEP key. Managed to get access then added the WEP key afterwards!!! Seems to be fine now.

    Thank you for all the helpful comments much appreciated :thumbsup:
