      Re: Can't connect to wii, psp or Ds?

      May I also suggest one other thing that you should do.

      I have used wireless for my DS and PSP, and after a while I would not be able to connect (3 days or so).

      The reason for this is the IP address. You will need to assign the device a static IP address by going to the LAN IP Setup. This will therefore prevent the problem.

      Below is a walkthrough I created for the DS (is pretty similar for other consoles, if your stuck on finding the MAC address then let me know).

      ================================================== ==========

      Netgear DG834GT Walkthrough

      +Access your wireless router by typing 192.168.0.1 into your address bar (usual default IP address, you don't need the www. in front)

      +Enter in your username (default is admin)

      +Enter in your password (default is sky)

      +Click on "LAN IP Setup" from the side bar under "Advanced"

      +On the new window keep everything as default but scroll down until you see "Address Reservation".

      +Click on the button that reads "ADD".

      +Type in an IP Address (usually 192.168.0.xx, where xx means of your choice. Usually take the highest IP listed on the "Address Reservation Table" at the top and add 10 to the last number. For Example if the highest is 192.168.0.2 then yours for your DS would be 192.168.0.12.)

      +In the next box enter in your DS's MAC address. this can be found by going to WiFi setting on the games title screen --> Options --> System Information.

      +Insert this address into the second box on your router settings page.

      +Finally enter in a device name for example mine is Gameboy DS.

      +Finally click add and then test your connection with your DS.

      +If all is well, access the game and try mognet.

      Hi there,

      I know for sure the PSP is Wireless B, and I think the Wii and DS are also Wireless B. Is your router set for Wireless G only, and not B & G?

      That caught me out with my PSP.
