Troubleshooter “how-to” to shoot your Wi-Fi woes away

Wii-Fi!An epidemic is currently spreading across the land and it’s not the T-Virus nor a new Lindsay Lohan song (hah! what are the chances?!). It comes in a bunch of 5-digit error codes that keep popping up whenever some people try to access the online Wii Channels.

For the unlucky people who are having a Wii bit of trouble with some Wi-Fi connection issues, we’ve just got the thing for you. Here’s a comprehensive list of possible options that you can try doing to troubleshoot your Wi-Fi woes away.

  • Make sure your router is on the list of supported hardware
  • Update your router to the latest firmware
  • Reboot your router
  • Switch your router to broadcast on channel 1 or 11
  • Adjust your router settings to allow both 802.11g and 802.11b, if supported
  • Avoid using microwave ovens, cordless phones and other 2.4GHz devices while connecting
  • Move your router closer to your Wii or use a repeater to extend its range
  • Change the MTU setting to 1400
  • Manually configure your router with your Wii’s MAC address
  • Assign a manual IP address, DNS servers, etc.
  • Spend $35-45 on a Wi-Fi USB Connector for your PC
  • Wait for the Wii LAN Adapter (due in January)

If your connection still doesn’t work after following this simple “how-to”, the only thing we suggest you to do is break down in an uncontrollable fit of tears for weeks on end. Hah. We kid. Just call Nintendo and we’re sure they’ll be more than glad to help you out.
