  • How do I connect my Nintendo Wii to my home network?

      Before you can connect your Wii to your wireless network you need to have a wireless router and you need to know your wireless network name and wireless password.

      If you don't know what your wireless network name and wireless password is, see What is my wireless network name and wireless password? and follow the instructions for your router.

      If you know your wireless network name and wireless password, you can connect your Wii to your network by carrying out the steps below:
