If the pointers don't show up it is a strong indicator that the sensor bar isn't working or connected properly.
I don't think that it has anything to do with internet access but your wireless router should work fine as long as you have a USB wireless access card and then go into your settings and connect the devices, which is an easy process.

Well what you need is the name of your wireless internet, the password for it[if you have one set up]. What you would do is head to the options of the Wii. In the options you need to find the button that says internet. The you must pick wireless for the internet, scan for the name of your wireless internet, and put in the password if you have it. Then it should run a test, if you did it right, it'll connect and you should have internet again.

Cannnot connect to the internet error 50300 0n tv screen?


Hi.

It appears that your Wii console's Internet connection may be affected by wireless interference.
Try the following:

1) The Wii console's internet connection settings are not correct. This could include your network name (SSID), WEP or WPA keys, or any manual settings you may have entered.

2) It's possible something has changed since you last connected online with your Wii console. Try setting up a new connection file, using your router's settings.


3) While "Search for an Access Point" is the easiest and recommended connection type, your network may require you to use the "Manual Setup" option. Click on the link below for help

Wireless intermittment so no internet or whatsapp has worked well up until last night when it just did not connected. Correct wifi name but no connection.


The free version of Whatsapp is a one year license. If you've used it for more than a year, you'll need to pay for it. Its $1.99 a year I believe.
Cheers

As long as your Wii can detect the "network" in your house, you can connect to the internet, and hook up to netflix wirelessly. Start your Wii and go to "wii options" in the lower left corner. Then click on Wii settings and then scroll to page two. Then click on "INTERNET". You will then go to Connection settings. From there choose wireless and let it find your router. You will need to enter the "passphrase" for the router, to connect. SAVE your settings and each time you start the Wii it will automaticly connect.
