    I tried all of these suggestions to no avail. This Wii has always been finicky with internet access but I’ve always managed to fix it in the past. But this time I’ve jumped through all the hoops and still have the error so I really don’t know what else I can try.

      Try setting the Wireless Channel to Auto in your router firmware settings (if it has that option) and make sure that your wireless network configuration in the router firmware settings are also set properly. Even if just one value is configured wrong, it can definitely mean the difference between connecting to a wireless access point successfully vs. beating your head up against the wall because you’ve attempted to connect dozens of times the same way, but just aren’t getting any result.

      More often than not, it’s simply just a matter of making a minor adjustment or two in your router firmware and subsequently following the routers instructions for connecting wireless devices in conjunction with the connection instructions on your Wii Console.

      If you don’t know what you’re doing, then it is advisable to contact a technician whom can help you set it up properly.

      Wireless Networking, in and of itself, is usually never as simple as 1,2,3 and then you’re done. There’s just too many variables with regard to the type of equipment one chooses to use. Thus the reason to go back to the router to make sure everything is copacetic there first, then go back and attempt to connect using the Wii Setup Menu.

      Remember, you must ensure that your router is correctly configured, or it simply will not work no matter how many times you attempt to connect using the Wii.

    Update your router’s firmware.
    If your router’s firmware is not compatible with the Wii console, it is possible a newer, updated version of the firmware could resolve your connection issue. For assistance in updating the firmware on your router, contact the router manufacturer. The router manufacturer can assist in locating the newest version and provide the appropriate process to update your specific router.

      The Wii firmware hasn’t been updated since 2010, your router would have to be ancient for its firmware to be an issue.

    One important thing to mention is that the Wii won’t automatically select the correct security the first time you try setting up a wifi connection, as I experienced when I recently got myself a used wii.

    So it’s not just something that can occur if you change router settings
