Problems with connection between nintendo wii and cisco 871w.-

Unanswered Question
Jul 16th, 2010


I have a problem connecting my Nintendo Wii via wireless with a cisco 871w.

I tested  with different encryption (WEP, WPA2 and open) to no avail.

The console gives me errors when testing the connection  (number 51 330).

Any other device I connected  to the wireless network works flawlessly (Notebook, iphone, nokia  phones)

The network configuration to be open is:

ip dhcp pool VLAN20
   import all
   dns-server XX YY
   lease infinite


dot11 ssid Wii
vlan 20
authentication open
ssid guest-mode


interface Dot11Radio0
no ip address
ssid Wii
  speed basic-1.0 basic-2.0 basic-5.5 6.0 9.0 basic-11.0 12.0 18.0 24.0 36.0 48.0
channel 2462
station-role root

I change the channel, the  encryption. Leave the console with  fixed ip, not works!

Thanks for your help.

I have this problem too.

Try with open authentication, wpa, wep without success.
When you do a show ip dhcp binding do not see the mac's of Nintendo Wii.

From  what I see is a signaling problem but not how to solve.

Please show me what commands you used to make these changes.


Mi config:

interface Dot11Radio0
no ip address
no dot11 extension aironet
encryption vlan 10 mode ciphers tkip
encryption vlan 20 mode ciphers tkip
ssid Agrolate
ssid Pamelie
speed basic-1.0 basic-2.0 basic-5.5 basic-6.0 basic-9.0 basic-11.0 basic-12.0 basic-18.0 basic-24.0 basic-36.0 basic-48.0 basic-54.0
channel 2462
station-role root
no cdp enable

Hi -

You probably don't want all of the numbers in your 'speed' command to have 'basic' with them.  The 'basic' prefix indicates that the particular speed must be supported by the client.  If a number does not have the 'basic' prefix, then the speed is allowed, but not required.

Without having tested your exact speed command, it is conceivable that the Wii does not support some of those speeds and so it is not able to associate to the wireless.

The following is the speed command that I'm currently using.

interface Dot11Radio0
speed basic-2.0 basic-11.0 12.0 18.0 24.0 36.0 48.0 54.0

If this command fixes your problem, then there must be one or more speed which you are requiring which the Wii does not support.

Hope this helps,
