    I'm having a hell of a time trying to figure out how to connect to the internet on my Wii. I select wireless accesspoint and it picks up my wireless router, but it's giving me an error code saying it cannot connect. Are there any special settings I am supposed to use? My lap top and my xbox 360 pick up my wireless network without any special settings. Help please. :nonod:

    I have not upgraded my system. It's the same wireless network that has worked for everything else in my house. Maybe my Wii has defective Wifi. :/

    The wii system upgrade i can't remember how i done it but it got my wii working fine on the news on and weather so it might work on the internet! Maybe you might just have a bad internet channel remember it is only the trial version, when the full version is released it might work for you.
