    My wii recognizes my wireless router LINKSYS BEFW11SA but it will not connect. I keep getting the a 51330 error. I have to put in a security code to access the router, which is not problem but it cannot connect to the internet.
    I was told to change my broadcast mode to 802.11g. I went to internet explorer and typed in my IP address but I have NO clue as to how and change my broadcast mode.
    If I do change th broadcast mode, what effect will it have on my other wireless computers and my xbox?

    Hi

    changing to 802.11g (54Mbps) won't affect any of your other
    wireless devices as long as they're not 802.11b only.

    changing to 802.11g will prevent any 802.11b (11Mbps) wifi
    devices connecting to your network.

    to change to 802.11g, you normally have an option to alter the
    broadcast mode. it could be either 802.11b only, 802.11g only or
    "mixed mode" which allows for both protocols to connect.

    with regards to getting your Wii to connect, are you using
    MAC filtering as well as WEP or WPA encryption?
    if you are, you will need to add the Wii's MAC address to
    the list of "trusted" devices which are allowed to connect
    to your router.

    Who told you this? Go back and kick their ass for being a moron. Your router DOESNT HAVE 802.11G
