Hi, I was bored, plus now, people can stop with the questions "How do I get internet connection on my wii".
Here's a step-by-step walkthrough on how to get internet connection on your Nintendo Wii:
At your Wii home page, go to the bottom-left hand corner, and find "Wii options". Click this button, with the icon of "wii"
Once you're at this stage, click on the button on the right, with the icon of a wrench.
Once you're at this stage, then go to page 2, and click on "Internet"
Now you will be asked whether you want Wireless connection, or Wired Internet.
I shall explain the wireless connection for now.
When you click "wireless connection", you will be asked whether you want to "search for an access point", "use a nintendo wifi USB connector" or use "manual set up". I would suggest searching for an access point, for it's the most simple option there is.
Now then, you obviously need a wireless router for this to work. If your wireless router is up and running, it should appear in the list that appears after searching for an access point. Your routers name is typically the name of the brand of router.
Once you find your router, select it, but you'll probably need your WEP key.
This can be found by opening up the internet and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1. (This does not work for all routers) Some routers may have a default ip of something like 10.0.0.1. You can check your routers manual or google your router to find the default ip. You may also be asked for a password. The default username and password are usually username: admin and password: admin) You should now have the setup screen for your router. Go to the "wireless" tab and you should see your WEP key.
Once you have your WEP key, save the settings.
Sometimes, your internet will be able to connect from here. Try a test connection, and if it works, great! You now have internet connection!
If, however, your wii cannot connect using the test connection, then you may need to alter some settings.
You'll most likely need your IP address, and DSL servers. To find this, you can:
(Windows XP users): Go to Start -> Run -> cmd -> ipconfig /all
(Windows Vista users): Go to Start -> Search -> cmd -> ipconfig /all
This should show you a long list of internet information, find your required field, and enter this in it's respective slot.
Now try a test connection, it should work, provided you have entered in the correct information for the right settings.
If you are still encountering troubles, then the following sites may help:
