    Try switching between the ways you access wifi. Try wired and wireless and go with what works. I think wired should be better.

    Even if your connection is the best some little sod will always use lag to get the upper hand

    Use these settings to help improve your connection.

    On your Wii:
    Use a static IP
    Use OpenDNS 208.67.222.222; 208.67.220.220
    Set MTU to "0" which is auto.

    On your Router:
    Set the static IP you have for the Wii on the DMZ.

    Switch from wireless to wired connection always helps.

    Just a average laptop capable of playing the game and a ethernet port.

    Are you on DSL?

    If so... I have been fighting with laggy connection for months. Last week I even went out and bought a gaming router. Still had lag issues. Started researching and discovered that the DSL modem (Speedstream 4200-provided by my ISP) has an internal router- not a wireless router, just a basic no frills router. Even my ISP's tech support was unaware that the 4200 had an internal router. After quite a bit of time on the phone with them, they determined that I was correct, and figured out the steps to take to bridge that router, thus taking it out of the chain.

    BTW- if you do bridge the modem's router, you then need to change your wireless router to be in PPPOE mode, and input your ISP's login information before you will be able to access the internet.

    WOW! Amazing difference. No more leading targets by huge amounts. No more being killed by someone, and then have them show up after the fact LOL

    I have verizon, and it hardly lags, and the router is both wired and wireless. Try that.

    Having just fought the lag monster and beat it after months of investigating, there is no simple answer. Causes of lag are so many possibilities

    Possible lag issues starting at the Wii


    • Wiiconnect- this function needs to be disabled as it can attempt to download info while you are playing, thus taking up bandwidth
    • Wired or wireless- distance to the router can make a difference. Long distance from wireless router can cause a weak signal. Likewise if wired, the longer the LAN cable is, the worse.
    • Router- some routers are incompatible with Wii. There is a list of them on Nintendo's website
    • Router- firewall will cause lag. Port forward the Wii
    • Router- older routers have slower processors.
    • Router- if not protected, neighbors might be using your router
    • Router- if other people in your house are online, this will have a dramatic impact on your game play, causing extreme lag if they hit websites like Facebook, Myspace, and youtube
    • Modem- if DSL, the modem will have an internal router. This router also has another firewall.
    • Modem- if cable modem, if there are a lot of neighbors on the same cable, during peak hours your bandwidth will be cut down as you share all the bandwidth
    • ISP- if your plan is a slower speed, you should upgrade to a faster speed plan
    • ISP- Some ISP's are incompatible. There is a list of incompatible ISP's on Nintendo's website
    • ISP- some ISP's are not "game friendly". They have systems in place that detect when high bandwidth games are being played, and they "throttle" the account so that the game is incapable of fully using the bandwidth
    • ISP- distance to the ISP hub can make a difference
    • Game host- the further away the host is, the worse the lag. Turn "region" on to make sure the game only searches for hosts in your area of the world
    There is tons of information available all over the internet. It took me months of reading and making changes. I finally got it fixed, and have gone from having constant bad lag, to (now) my connection is so solid that I get host 90% of the time.
