- Connecting Wii console to tinternet – should I shouldn't I?
Faff? Turn on, enter wireless key, go. Easy!
Well I was struggling for a "Con". I'm a little more locked down than that, so in my case I had to find the MAC address of the Wii, log into router to allow that MAC, assign it an IP address then type my loooong network key into the Wii. But yeah, still only 5 minutes work.Posted 8 years agoWTFMember
Wii points are £7 for a 1000.Posted 8 years ago
Good for the odd old Nintendo game.Sonic etc. but not really worth it.
Internet browser cost also 500 points iirc.
OK if you didn`t have any other internet access but again not worth it.
Iplayer is good addition.
But biggest downside of update is it kills the homebrew that some have to softmod the consoles so latest update is really Nintendo cracking down on piracy tbh.
AFAIK it doesnt affect chipped versions.ChristowkidMember
Have just connected wii to the net for the first time, following a previous thread on here. The kids bought it and wired it up, so didn't even realise you could connect until I saw previous thread and read instructions – duhhh.Posted 8 years ago
So…. How do you load up iplayer onto it?
Not to sure as the Mrs did it while I got the beers in, but I know she read out the wireless router code to me and I had to input it using the wii remote. Maybe this link will help http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-online/5820-official-wii-wireless-internet-connection-guide.html
