      Remember the pass code is case sensitive, so make sure you are typing it in to the wii on its wavy pointy keyboard.

      BTW Does your wireless work with other devices?

      Usually a security error - wrong key, but I have read that if you have a game cube memory card installed, this can cause connection failures. If you have one, pull it out and see if that helps.

      Re: Connecting Wii to sky broadband help

      Theres no gamecube memory card inserted in it.
      When i first got the sky broadband, i connected the ps3 to it and it went very smoothly. I then had trouble getting my laptop connected to it, so i phoned up the sky help thing and they changed the 'channel' it was using from the default one, which sorted the laptop, but after that, the ps3 was being a bit weird and sometimes wont let me on online tekken
      I tried the network key in both cases, and mustve tried each case 2 or 3 times. I tried going through the manual set up and entering everything that way.
      Can it be to do with this channel thing?
      Its really wicking off

      Thanks for your replies

      Try downloading and using Inssider from the link below. Use it to discover the channels in use in your area, choose one as far from those in use as possible.

      You could also try giving the Wii a fixed IP address. Make sure you are not being blocked by the Wireless station access list.
