How to set a static IP Address in a Wii

0

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start –> (sometimes settings) –> Control Panel –> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start –> Control Panel –> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on “View Status” to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under “manual settings” in the Wii but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
e.g. if the PC or other device has address 192.168.0.2
then set your Wii to 192.168.0.3
