I just bought a used airport extreme (about 1 year old) and set it up. It works great with my MacBook Alum, my brother's pc will work with it, but it did not recognize the SSID at first, we had to manually input it. It does not work with our Wii. When the Wii searches for SSID's, the Extreme is not listed, even though my MacBook has full bars in the same area. I know you can tell the Extreme not to broadcast it's SSID, but we are not doing that. Switching between WEP and WPA does not make a difference.

Also, manually entering in the SSID and security information does not work with the Wii like it did with the PC.

Any help??
QUOTE Thanks
