Connecting a Wii to UD's Wireless Network
Before connecting to UD's network, the MAC address for all devices must be registered with UD.
Nintendo Wii consoles do not have a Web browser. Therefore, you will need to
- find your Wii console's MAC address and
- register it manually at UD's Network Page.
First step: Find your Wii console's MAC address
- On the Wii home menu (also called the Channel Menu), click the Wii button in the lower left corner.
- Select Wii Settings.
- Scroll to the second page of settings by clicking the right arrow (right side of the Settings screen).
- Select Internet.
- Select Console Information. (Some versions of the Wii software may have a Console Settings button instead.)
- Write down the MAC address for your Wii console. It is a combination of 12 numerals and letters (0-9, a-f), often displayed with a -, : or . character between groups of characters. (Example: 77:c6:f8:95:b3:a6)
- Click Back repeatedly to return to the main Wii Menu.
Second step: Register the MAC address manuallyFrom a computer that you have already registered for wired (Ethernet) or wireless access to UD's network, submit your Wii's MAC address to us on the UD Network Page.
- Go to the UD Network Page.
- Choose the second option under Registering for Internet Access.
- On the Manually Register Your Network Adapter page, type your Wii's 12-character MAC address in the first text box on the page.
- Type a description in the second text box--something like "Chris's Wii."
- Click Register Roaming IP.
- You can log out from the Network Page. Your Wii should be able to use the network within 30 minutes.
