    It's not like Xbox Live. Does your Wii see the network? You're sure you're entering the right key? Is it a network the Wii can recognize?

    Some routers are not compatible with the Wii. Even if it picks it up and the WEP key is correct, some just don't work. :( I've experienced this. I recommend picking up a Buffalo brand router, they're not too expensive, are really fast, and work great with my DS and Wii.

    Here is a list of compatible routers

    just click on the drop down menu to browse the brands and check how well they work, and how to set them up.
