Wii: How to Locate the Console’s MAC Address

If your wireless router uses MAC filtering, you will need to know the MAC address of your device so that it may connect to the internet for updates and gaming.

1. When at the Wii Menu screen, click the Wii icon in the lower left corner.

2. Select Wii Settings.

3. Click the arrow on the right side of the screen to advance to the next page of settings.

4. Select Internet.

5. Select Console Information.

The MAC Address for your console will be displayed. After you have written down the address, repeatedly select Back to return to the Wii Menu screen.

      I had an original WRT54G that I brkcied screwing around with the firmware. I needed another router right away, so I picked the WRT54G2 up at my local BB for $50. I was going to spend a lot more for an N router, but figured it wasn’t worth it for my modest DSL/home network. I had the WRT54G2 up and running within 10 minutes. No problems. No drama. I was concerned about the internal antenna, but I still get a full signal even in my basement. It seems to work very well, and looks much better in my office than the original WRT54G.
