    I hooked mine up with a Wireless WiFi adaptor. Read your manual.

    I picked up a ethernet LAN connector and it works beautifully. plus it has a higher bandwith than wireless.

    Have you tried searching for a signal on your wii?
    You should have picked up your wireless connection.

    Yeah
    I've gone to the Wii menu and searched for access point and tried most things to connect but it just says cant find access point for wireless
    and to the other guys i spent most my money on the Wii so sadly i dont have enough money for a connector or Wi-Fi

    Have you checked that your router is set to channel 1, 6 or 11? It better using these channels.

    i had the same prob that I couldnt find my wirless when I searched for it on the wii. I ended up having to type in all the stuff manually. Just contact your braodband provider and they should be able to tell you all your opptions

    also make sure in your router settings that it is broadcasting your SSID, otherwise you won't see it. I work for a broadband ISP and most of the time we will not troubleshoot a 3rd party router.

    Here are some helpful numbers:

    Linksys: (800) 326-7114

    D-Link: (877) 453-5465

    Belkin: (800) 223-5546

    NetGear: (888) 638-4327


    Most ISPs run off of a dynamic config (DHCP) and will not accept static IP. As long as you are set DHCP there should not be too much problem, unless of course your modem is having a hard time connecting to the ISP. Thats an issue they are required to fix.
