Try adding the network in manually instead of searching.
What is your network band, because it can’t be a 5Ghz band
It has 5 and 2. something, 2.4 I think
Make sure your network supports b/g/n, the Wii doesn't support more modern standards. I had to enter mine manually even though it did, you may run into the same issue.
I'm having a similar issue. I have an Xfinity XFI router and it has 802.11 g/n/ax and 802.11 g/n. I configured it to enable 2.4 and 5 GHz. I connected the wii to the 2.4 GHz connection, and also got it to show up by changing the channel manually to channel 3, but it won't let the wii connect with or without a password.
You need b, not just g
I can't. The router only allows those options
Well then you're stuck. Your router isn't going to work. Xfinity is known to be problematic with this.
Add the network manually instead
Low effort post.
Plenty of resources and answers to this specific question in this Reddit. Learn to search. Your issue is probably router settings. Does your router support 802.11b/g, 2.4Ghz band, WEP/WPA-PSK encryption (not WPA2 or WPA-AES), manual broadcast channel on 2.4Ghz band, etc.
WPA2 works fine. No reason to avoid it. It's 2.4 and b/g that give most people issues.
