    Before Giving me instructions, please take into consideration that I am not a huge genius when it comes to setting up wireless mumbo jumbo. I dont know much about it so try not to be too detailed. I have all of the required things for my Nintendo usb to work and it seems to work quite good until I have a connection test. It recognizes my wii and It lets me give it permission to connect and all, but it will NOT connect to the internet for some wierd reason. I have turned off my firewall, my virus scan, taken all devices that could interrupt the connection out of the room,etc. and the connection still isnt there.
    any help please?

    Is your USB connector close to your Wii? (about 10 ft or less)

    Well my wii is less than 5 feet away from the connector, and ive placed the wii in lots of different places and it still wont work. I dont think there is anything wrong or wierd with my connection though. I have a normal COX internet connection, so i dont know what the problem is.

    SO you have your USB Wi Fi installed on your PC and you have the USB donger thing plugged into the USB port on the back of your PC ? and the wii can find the access point, but it wont connect to it ?

    OH !!!! I KNOW!

    Just go into your wireless router. And change the channel to 1 or 11

    Bet you 10 bucks that your channel is set to 6, factory default.



    If you dont know how to access your wireless router controls, just look in the book or manual. You access them through your computer, which im sure you already know since you've turned off your Firewall, but just incase you didnt, theres no switch to change the router channels on the router itself.


    So i dont understand why you said "USB problems" if you have a wireless router, then the wii's wireless will hook itself up to it.


    I bet your router settings are still at factory default 6. GOOD LUCK. tell us how it turns out.


    Also, if your using a wireless router, set up a wireless connection on your wii menu internet options, dont go into any of the USB options stuff.

    What linksys do you have. I mean whats your Model number ETC. Once i know that i can find out what your default IP address is, then i can tell you how to access your Router controls.

    Once you figure out what model you linksys is i can give you your default IP address. Like for instance mine is http://192.168.0.1/, and i bet yours is something similar.


    Once you figure that out, you just type your IP number into your web address bar, you know, where you type www.whatever.com and you simply put HTTP://whatever your default ip is. and all of a sudden this box will pop up asking your for your USERNAME AND PASSWORD, if you've never changed these settings (most people dont BUT THEY SHOULD!) then it will be the factory default which is USERNAME: BLANK (dont type anything) and the default PASSWORD is almost alwas ADMIN then hit okay and BAM your looking at your wireless routers control panel right there on your computer.

    Im trying to find your dang default ip number


    But its gonna take a minute.








    You know your IP number ? Show me how your putting it on your browser, dont use the search just the browser, and dont add .COM after the number. Just simply http://yournumber then enter.
