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

  1. find your Wii console's MAC address and
  2. register it manually at UD's Network Page.

First step: Find your Wii console's MAC address

  1. On the Wii home menu (also called the Channel Menu), click the Wii button in the lower left corner.
  2. Select Wii Settings.
  3. Scroll to the second page of settings by clicking the right arrow (right side of the Settings screen).
  4. Select Internet.
  5. Select Console Information. (Some versions of the Wii software may have a Console Settings button instead.)
  6. 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)
  7. Click Back repeatedly to return to the main Wii Menu.

Second step: Register the MAC address manually

From 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.

  1. Go to the UD Network Page.
  2. Choose the second option under Registering for Internet Access. register
  3. On the Manually Register Your Network Adapter page, type your Wii's 12-character MAC address in the first text box on the page.
  4. Type a description in the second text box--something like "Chris's Wii."
  5. Click Register Roaming IP.
  6. You can log out from the Network Page. Your Wii should be able to use the network within 30 minutes.
