Is anyone familiar with WPS, which apparently is a “feature” on most new wireless networking routers?
I am trying to set up a wireless network for my sister to use her Wii online, something which I did with my Wii without problem. But I could not get her Wii to find the wireless network I created when I installed the new router, and I am fairly sure it’s because of this WPS business, which required me to press a little WPS button on the router before even her laptop would see the network.
My google searching has utterly failed me. Anyone have a thought on how to get the Wii on the network?
WPS should never prevent you from seeing a network, AFAIK, it’s just an easier way to do setup, because it works like the sync buttons on wireless mice/controllers. On the other hand, I could see some people being clever and having SSID broadcast disabled until that button is pressed. IMO, a bad, bad idea. Mostly because it doesn’t really add any security, but also because it contravenes the 802.11 standards.
Thank you for the replies! I felt like I was missing something in this whole scenario, and I guess it is probably the frequency of the network. I didn’t even see G wireless routers for sale anymore at the store, which is why that didn’t even occur to me. Much appreciated.
