      Have you tried disabling security altogether and then connecting? If that works you can then try re-enabling security.

      To access netgear settings type 192.168.0.1 in your browser.
      Username: admin
      Password: sky
      Disable wireless security from there.

      Depends how far the wii is from the router really. I seem to remember mine taking a good 20 mins or so.
