      Wii and Sky Broadband

      Hello. I am having trouble connecting my Nintendo Wii up to my Sky broadband. The broadband is working fine and the Wii even recognises its existence, but it won't connect, continually citing error 51330 or something.

      After googling around, i see that it is fairly common and resolvable, but I am not familiar with any techie terms and was wondering whether anyone could post an idiots guide to what I can do. Is it something to do with the security settings?

      Many thanks.

      You need to type in the ssid into the wii setting to allow it to connect to the router

      It is also a good idea to assign the Wii a static IP address if you have more than one PC connecting wirelessly. I set ours up at .12, this was after finding that the Wii wouldn't reconnect if we had additional computers running. Try googling the eror number, you should find detailed fix instructions.

      Many thanks for your replies.

      as far as the ssid number is concerned, i believe i have already done this (but I will double check).

      and sorry - how do you assign static IP addresses?

      Cheers
