Before connecting to UD's network, the MAC address for
all devices must
be registered with UD.

- register it manually at UD's Network Page.

- On the Wii home menu (also called the Channel Menu), click the Wii button in the lower left
- 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 -,
. character between groups of characters.
- Click Back repeatedly to return to the
main Wii Menu.

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.

- On the Manually Register Your Network
Adapter page, type your Wii's 12-character MAC address in the first
text box on the page.

able to use the network within 30 minutes.
