    Hey all,

    I got my wii working fine with my wireless router -- but I had to get rid of my reeaally long password that I have been using for a shorter one - since the wii didn't like the long one (Belking Wireless router).

    Anyone have this issue?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    How long is long? I used a 28 character WEP password and it worked fine.

    I use a Motorola 6026 router.

    48? Who are you protecting yourself from, the CIA? It's less a problem and more not a problem.

    I had WPA SPA on my linksys router until I tried to connect my Wii with WPA SPA. For some reason the Wii could not connect with WPA SPA. Anyways, yeah I had the same problem where the keygen on the linksys router for WEP exceeds the Wii WEP key length. I ended up truncating as well, not a biggie since I'm not broadcasting and there's 5-6 other wireless routers in our apt complex :).
