    Theres a problem with my connection. I have a laptop in the same room as my wii and the laptop runs through my wireless internet also and it works fine. The wii detects my wireless internet when setting up with a high connection rate(in the green). I select my internet thing and enter my security password for the internet and then the thing goes through those auto setups with ports ect, then when the time comes for testing the connection the thing doesn't work,it comes up as some kind of error message and says to visit the Nintendo support site.

    I remember having that same problem as you a while back when I was setting up my wii. My problem was that the wireless adapter inside the wii couldn't decipher the code being sent in the signal, that may be your problem also.

    what is the error code? or is there one?
    the wii doesnt support all types of security encryption so that might be your problem

    Am I right in thinking you're trying to get the Wii to detect your router for the first time?...*was getting confused with your explanation*

    This might help then:

    Check your wireless configuration settings, first by doing an 'ipconfig /all' at the command prompt (Start->Run->type cmd->type ipconfig /all) to determine that you are using an 192.168.<>.<> IP address and not your Internet Service Provider's IP. For example my ISP's is 82.<>.<>.<> i.e Virgin.

    If it's set up using the ISP's IP then, your Wii will still detect the wireless set up but if you're adding your Wii to your wireless set up then it has to be routed along with the laptop through the router 192.168...etc. Otherwise it will never connect.

    That might not be your prob but it might help...If not the only other thing I can think of is to double check that the password you have on the wireless security is correct.

    i know the password is correct cause i typed some random letters and it didnt work then i typed the real password and it worked. so i can get into all those setup things but it just doesnt connect to my internet somehow. it detects the internet connection though. but how do i add the wii to my router/network cause my computer,laptop are shown on that network so how do i add the wii cause im assuming thats how people put online game saves, ect onto their game systems

    Did you check to make sure your wireless connection on your laptop is assigned to 192.168.<>.<>?

    My wii also does this with the wireless connection. Sometimes it boots up ok and starts, and i can do online things. Then others, itr just wont work, or will work to start, then when i try and go into the wii shop it wont work again.

    I literally have my laptop right next to my wii to try and make the signal stronger, but it doesnt work. It would be a bummer for online play, as it will probably just cut out all thetime.

    Anyone else have this prob? How do you get your wireless to work constantly without failing all the time?

    Also, when it loses connection sometimes, it freezes my whole laptop, and i have toswtich it off to get it going again.

    I just did the cmd promt thing suggussted above, and my ip address isnt set to what is advised. How do i change it to the one thats good for the wii?

    That might be my problem.

    Nice one!

    You gotta get yourself a SD memory card. Photos can be viewed if they are held on a SD Memory card. The card is inserted into the Wii and it reads them. Remember to download the photo channel thingy first from the Wii shop channel...it's free btw.

    I'm guessing that your Wii connects to the Net/Shop channel when your laptop isn't switched on. That's the only reason I can think of why it works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't...if you're saying your wireless configuration isn't set up using the router IP of 192.168.<>.<>. Sounds like, as I mentioned above somewhere, that it's configured using your ISP's IP address...this will cause problems when trying to access the Net from the Wii..again I'm only guessing since I can't see it.

    To be honest tho, it would be best that you call the manufacturer of your router to take you through the steps involved. It's fairly simple, and it would be quicker than talking you through it on here. Just tell 'em your problem and that your wireless setup isn't configured through the router.

    Just out of interest...what is the first numbers shown under your Local Area connections then, when you do an IP config? i.e. <1st>.<2nd>.<3rd>.<4th>.

    As far as game saves go; have read over pages 35 to 37 in your operations manual to bring yourself up to speed..it's all in there.

    Not sure about the roster updates tho....find a way for the game to update itself through the wireless connection.
