    I currently don't live with my parents (in college), but when I go home, I would like to be able to keep my Wii connected to the internet. On Nintendowifi.com, the Linksys WRT54G version 2 and 3 are listed as compatible with the Wii, but no mention of version one. Does anybody have any experience or know if the original WRT54G router will work with the Wii? Thanks.

    Yeah, it should work just fine. Just about any wireless router that supports wireless b or better should work.

    I used to have that router and never had a problem with it. Nice to hear that it works fine with the Wii.

    Use mixed mode, then you can use G on your PC. Wii only uses B apparently.

    not true u can use mixed mode for other devices to use G but Wii does use B/G its just it seems a few routers namely Linksys ones of different models i have read have had issues.... its not the Wii its the router... Wii DOES use B or G

    and btw my computer uses LAN cables so i am connected anyhow and Wii is not 3 feet from router lol works great in B tho just a lil slow ooo well thats life!

    I had to change from G to mixed mode to use the Wii with my Netgear router. All spec sheets that I've found say that the Wii uses b/g but the evidence says otherwise from what I've seen. Maybe it hasn't yet been implemented in the firmware.

    It has been from the start Netgear models(few) and Linksys Has issues its not a too wide spread issue but it is known Nintendo may fix this in a better Wifi update or whatever till then ppl like us just have to use the B band..... as u can tell it detects and sets up on G band but will not make a connection on G... is the Wii but then again its isolated to just a few brands/models or routers....

    Yeah, hopefully they will figure out how to make it compatible, I really like this router. Doesn't really matter right now since you can't game online yet.

    hehe yea just sucks when u do an update and it goes slow but with the minority of ppl having this issue and still being able to use B band its not a top priority i am sure as we do still have connectability.... i know it supports G as all my friends run theirs in G band...
