Ok. So here's a mind boggler. So I did all the basic connection setup process, updated the Wii 30 billion times, and I still cannot register or "send messages" to emails or other Wii's. I can download games on the virtual console and connect for my updates, but other than that after I click on "accept" for the "USER Agreements" or after the "updates" are done, it takes me back to the Wii Menu, and when I go back to my address book or try to register, the "Send Message" is not highlighted;because i did add my personal email address and I'm not able to "Send Message" to myself; My contacts are also not highlighted on my Address Book like they should be in order to send a message to someone. Again, I do not get any error codes. I have linksys router WRT54GS v. 1.5. I have my Wireless MAC Filter enabled with my Wii's Mac Address listed on my router settings. My router's security mode is set to "WPA Personal" w/ "TKIP algorithims". My network mode is set on "mixed" and my channel is set to 11. Also, my "BLOCK ANONYMOUS INTERNET REQUESTS" is also unchecked. I also changed my channel from 6 to 1 to 11. But still nothing. I also disable my security settings. And still nothing. I also tried setting my security mode to "WEP" and still nothing. I even went to my QoS settings, and added my Wii's Mac Address to my Wireless Device priorities. But again nothing happened. I also checked MyConnect24 settings on my Wii, and it is set to "On", and my Illmuniation is set to "Bright. So I go to "Wii settings"..and then.."Internet"...and then "User Agreements".... 'Would you like to use the WiiShop Channel andWiconnect24'?....YES!...and then it makes me review the agreements.. I click "ACCEPT"..and then it takes me back the Wii menu?? I have reviewed the "User Agreements" 30 billion times, and I still cannot send messages when it takes me back to the Wii menu and I go to the Message Board. Could this possibly be that My Wii's wireless card doesnt work? Or is just something that Im missing.
