Wii gaming consoles will not work on the ResHalls wireless. If you would like to use a Wii console in the residence halls, please connect it with an Ethernet cable using a USB to Ethernet Wii adapter.
To access features that require Internet connectivity on the Wii, setup a connection in the system settings and then sign into SafeConnect using the Internet Channel. If the Internet Channel is not installed or SafeConnect does not load, please bring the Wii to the ResNet office in Wilkerson Hall.
Due to Nintendo's use of outdated wireless technology, the Nintendo DS family of handhelds do not work on the ResHalls wireless. An access point has been set up for such wireless devices in the Webb Cafe at Wilkerson Hall.
