SOLUTION: connect Nintendo Wii via WiFi

Some people have trouble connecting their Nintendo Wii to the vividwireless home gateway. The issue is usually with the security mode selected on the gateway. Some modes are not supported by the Wii.

Nintendo Wii does NOT support WPA2-PSK TKIP, so you have to change the gateway to use something else ... e.g. WPA2-PSK AES.

There is information on the Nintendo site which will explain this in more detail.
