    Well guys i didnt want to start another "cant connect thread" , but what the heck....So i just realized my Telus 2WIRE modem has a single wireless set up (+the 4 ethernet ports), so anyway i tried to do the "Official Wii Wireless Internet Connection Guide" and i get to where i have to choose from a list of nearby access points and i click on the one that is green (with a lock) says 2WIRE677. So i click on that and it asks for a password or key...so what do i do guys? Also i have a wired set up and it worked great and all that but i unpluged it and not i cant get a connection again...it has the mac addy but the lan mac addy is not in there. So how do i go about hookin this up again.

    try the online manual from the manufacturers website.

    you have to go into your router (with a web browser you have to type in a http:// number)
    type in password
    then find the wireless section and setup the router or find the password
    the manual shoudl fill you in on the details. if you get stuck stop back in. i've never heard of that brand, so idk much on the internal router software.

    Well depending on how your router is setup, you need to go to the setup page, and configure the wireless security. A lot of manufacturers use http://192.168.1.1 but not all, and it's possible you or someone else reconfigured it.

    Some common advice:

    Write down your SSID (wireless name, which is CaSe sensitive), then generate and write down or remember a wireless access key for either a WEP or WPA secured network.

    Make sure your router is handing out IP addresses, which it should if DHCP is enabled.

    Last, make sure MAC address filtering isn't enabled, or if it is, make sure you add your Wii's mac address to the white-list.

    search for your router's manufacturer or the product model #

    with internet explorer you type in the address bar:

    for linksys
    http://192.168.1.1

    for dlink
    http://192.168.0.1

    ect...
    your router may be different

    If it's asking for a password from the Wii Consoles side, then you Wireless Network has WEP enabled encryption. Your manufacturer should say in the manual or on the underside of the router for SSID and Hex key (password) is. 2WIRE677 seems correct.

    Well with my 2Wire I just type home in the web browser and it takes me to my modem's settings. Mine is also wireless and my WEP key is under printed under my modem.
    Maybe yours is the same.

    You have to change the WEP Encryption key, thats your password to attach to this wifi router from the Wii. It's probably using something like 64-bit depth. When you change the password you have to follow a code 0-9 A-F, you can only use those ranges of numbers & letters to create your key. It should look something like this. A3:B1:37:01:AF <-- DO NOT USE THIS. Make your own. It can be any combination of 0-9 A-F characters.

    So the WEP Encryption key like you say ...is the same as the WAN MAC Addresss printed under my modem? Sorry for being retarded and i thought when i tried to hook up the lan adapter and stuff was hard lol

    Well it can be but, the MAC address for the router is for communication between devices attached to your network. But you can always try it. If it still does not work, log back into the router again, and look for WEP Security/Settings/Encryption, something similar.

    Which LAN Adapter are you trying to use with your Wii ?

    You can probably configure your WEP or WPA key to be your MAC address, but they are not in no means the same thing. Think of your WEP key as the password to the router, and the MAC address as... well the address/location. To get into the router (connect) you have to give the Wii (or whatever wireless device you are trying to connect to the router) the password to get access to the router and it's network.

    EDIT: Wait, you're using the LAN adapter? If you are connecting via CAT5 (Ethernet cable) you shouldn't have to mess with any of these security settings. A device hardwired to the router should receive an IP address automatically (if the router is configured as a DHCP server) and connect by itself.

    No No....I Had my wii hooked up to my modem via and ethernet cord and a nintendo (white) lan adapter with the little blue lights. But if i unplug the cord, it its hard as hell to get to connect to it and i cant remember how i did it before...it was a fluke or something

    Well anyway i just realized that the Telus 2WIRE modem has a wireless thingamabob so i dont want to use the ethernet lan adapter set-up if i could be wireless on the Wii. So i will try those things you guys said above and i will get back to you if i need help.

    Thanx alot
    Chris

    We can't see it because we don't have your router. Just try to explain where you're stuck.

    Im stuck on the screen that wants me to put in the password or access code on the Wii to find an access point or somthing like that...ive tried alot of the numbers and all that stuff and differnet ways like with and without the ":" in between the letters and numbers. I guess i just dont get what i have to do.

    What exactly do i type in and is it all case sensitive and have to us the ":" between every two letters /numbers.

    Yes i suck sorry!

    Well, like I said earlier if you have a 2Wire modem, like you said, look under the modem and try to put in the numbers in (). That should be your WEP key which is probably what you need to enter into your Wii.

    Trust me, I also own a 2Wire and once had to do the same thing.

    Edit: The link you gave us doesn't work because we don't have your router, so that doesn't help.

    Yes, when you're typing in the WEP Key (password), DO NOT put the ":" :)
