I bought a wii about 7,8 months ago and I bought a Lynksys router.It worked fine untill about 2 weeks ago.The wii wont connect to the internet.nor will the 360.The only way i get on with the 360 is through the dsl box now.So I bought a new router and it came with a mac compatible disk but it will only go to the third step because it wont take the password I gave it.Whats wierd is when you do the check access point with the wii and psp it recognizes the router but it wont connect.Anybody have any suggestions.

Well, the OS of your computer should be irrelevant to the Router. It should be a matter of going to your gateway IP in a browser, logging with the admin password for your router and configuring.

These settings will vary per manufacturer though, what's the make of the new router?

Belkin Routers are a pain to set up.

I had one and the stupid router would lose connection or worse it wouldn't connect at all belkin makes junk routers.

I would recommend a netgear or linksys router i would stay away from belkin.
