Wii Online

Recommended Posts

here's by basic question about setting up my Wii at home.

 

I have BT Broadband and a wireless Router (its an E-Tech) that 2 PCs use. One plugs straight into the router as it has no wireless card and the other is a laptop contacting wirelessly.

 

I can't seem to get my DS to work via my router (it can't seem to find it). Im worried that my Wii will have the same problem.

 

Can I plug my Wii straight into a telephone socket seeing as its broadband thats in use? Or do I need some kit to do that?

 

Thanks.

Consult your manual, BT broadband actively supports online gaming so it is not a problem with your ISP.

 

Ensure you have up to date drivers, set it up correctly (it's a doddle wth the software provided or on Windows XP default)

 

Failing that check NintendoWiFi.co.uk or use Google.co.uk for router compatibility.

 

Might I suggest Googling "Nintendo DS + your router model number" for assistance.

 

Wii supports wireless out of the box like the DS, however there is an ethernet adaptor coming out soon (inconvenient) your best bet would be to read the settings off your laptop on the DS/Wii manual settings. (SSID, WEP encyption, IP etc..)

What exactly does an ethernet cable connect to and from. You have to have the computer and Wii in the same room, correct?

 

Is it Modem to Wii?
