Wii Wifi Tests

From WiiBrew
Jump to navigation Jump to search

We have a lot of different varieties of people with wi-fi setups on the Wii and a lot of different issues. To gather information on how to fix this please add your own personal setup details to the table below.

  • User: Input your user name.
  • Router Name: Put your brand name and model number
  • Wii System Version: Go to your system settings and view the top right number/letter.
  • HBC Version: For most people, this will be 1.1.2.
  • Type Of Security: Enter what type of security, if any, on your router
  • Working: Does it work at all or on what but doesn't work on something else like: "Works on HBC all the time but only sometimes on the HBB".
  • Static/DHCP: How your Wii's IP address is determined. (If you don't know, it's probably DHCP.)
  • Do note that there are no guarantees of anything coming out of this. We can try at least though.
