Howdy!
So I want to connect my Wii to the internet, but I'm on a wired internet network. I had a WiFi Link (USB Adapter) back when I was on XP but it doesn't work with Windows 7. It worked perfectly.

Now I bought the TP-Link WN321G and all my consoles can find the connection, but now it's asking for the WPA-PSK (TKIP) key.

Every google search just says 'ask whoever set up your router'. I don't know who set it up, so that's no help.

Thanks!

Who owns this router?

If it is you you need to go into the routers wireless configuration screen and set the key yourself. The routers instruction manual will tell you how to do that. You can chose anything you like. but something easy to remember. Save it, re-boot the router and you can then enter the same key when prompted.

Some routers come with a default key but you should still change it to one of your own choosing.

Well, my father owns it and set it up but he had no idea what I was talking about when I asked him.
I'll take a look on his computer next time I can, but I thought since we were on a wired network the router wouldn't have wireless settings, though I can see why it would have both...
Thanks

You should be able to find the encryption key in the management interface of the router. Normally it would be on the wireless setup page.

Well, we own a D-Link DI-704P, and I read the manual and it doesn't seem to have any sort of wireless setup in the interface.
Could it be the USB making its own protection key? I assumed the router wouldn't have one since my previous USB WiFi adapter didn't need one...?

This is not a wireless router. To connect a USB Wi-fi adaptor you are going to need a wireless router.

Fair enough, guess the guy at the shop didn't actually know what he's talking about (like me!).
Thanks!

(I just thought I connect it to my wired internet and it would allow me to send a wireless signal out to the Wii, guess I'll just stick to LAN adapters from now on!)
