    I'm really hoping someone can help me, because I'm on the verge of giving up.

    I've recently upgraded my BT broadband connection to wireless using a BT Home Hub router.

    When setting up the Wii to connect to this router, it detects it ok when I search for an access point. I enter in the key code for the router ok, but when I get to the connection test, after about 30 seconds, the screen just freezes.

    I don't get an error message, it just locks-up.

    Now I've tried all number of things suggested on the official site, such as changing the broadcast channel, downloading the latest firmware and checking the MAC address - nothing seems to work.

    I don't think it's a problem with the router, because I've managed to connect my DS with no problems and a laptop computer.

    Is it possible I have a faulty Wii?

    If it's important, I did use the Nintendo USB WiFi Connector for a while (although that seldom worked either).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    have you changed your channel on your router to 1 or 11.
    this might not be the root of the problem but anything is better than nothing right?
