Connecting your Nintendo Wii to the internet opens up a world of possibilities, from downloading games online to connecting with other players remotely. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to connect your Wii to the internet.
First, make sure you have a Wii LAN adapter cable if you don’t have a wireless router for your internet connection. Connect the adapter to your router or modem and then to the Wii. If you have a wireless connection, you won’t need to attach an extra cable to your Wii.
Next, turn on your Wii console and wait for the homepage to appear. Click on the Wii circle in the lower left corner of the screen to get to the Wii Options menu. From there, click on the wrench icon to enter Wii Settings and then choose the Connection Settings option from the Settings menu.
For wired connections, choose the Internet option, then select Wired Connection. The system will automatically search for your connection. For wireless connections, select the option to Search for an access point so that the Wii can find your wireless connection. Then, select the connection you want to use to connect to the internet.
Enter your wireless password key, which might be a WEP, WPA, or different code depending on the type of wireless security in your system. Save your internet connection configuration settings by selecting OK and then run the connection test to make sure everything is set up correctly. If the test fails, go back and retry another connection.
Once you’re all set up, you can start using your new setup to connect with other Wii users and download games. Fun fact: In 2010, the Nintendo Wii became the best-selling latest generation console in the world.
