This guide is written to explain how to use the Nintendo LAN USB to share an internet connection between the Wii console and a LAN network with an active internet connection. Read below to find out how easily you can set up your Wii to share an internet connection with your LAN in less than 5 minutes.
The first thing you are going to need to do is make sure that you have the items in the list below:
– A Nintendo LAN USB adapter
– An Ethernet cable
The first thing you will need to do to create a successful internet connection on your Nintendo Wii console by using the Nintendo LAN USB adapter is insert the LAN USB adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.
Now that you have inserted the LAN USB into one of the USB ports on your Wii console you can then attach one end of your Ethernet cable to the adapter and attach the other end to your modem or router you must power on your Wii console and then, 15 seconds later turn on your modem/router.
Now you must get to the “Main Menu” by turning on your Wii console and then pressing the “A” button on your Wii controller at the “Warning” menu. Once you are at the “Main Menu” you must click the “Wii” button in the bottom left of the screen.
Now click the “Wii Settings” box. Once you have clicked the “Wii Settings” box, you must use the left and right arrows to scroll through the various options of the Wii. You need to scroll until you find the “Internet” option. Select the “Internet” option and then select “Connection Settings”.
You must now select “Connection 1”, “Connection 2” or “Connection 3” and then choose the appropriate network. In this case there should only be one network, which will be your home network or the name of your modem/router.
As soon as you have completed the steps above and selected the network you would like to connect to and then entered your password (if you are asked for the password) you can then click ok. Clicking ok will start the “Connection Test”, which will test your connection and then automatically connect you to the network permanently, unless you delete the network connection.
Be sure to send this guide to anybody you know who has chosen to use the LAN USB adapter for their Wii console who would love to utilize the Ethernet connectivity features of their Nintendo Wii console. Enjoy your newfound Nintendo Wii Ethernet network connectivity knowledge.
