    Wii NAT with WRT160N Wiresless N Router?

    I was wondering how do I set up the NAT to be open on my Wii so I can play Monster Hunter 3 better online (Pretty much everytime I play (like 2 games out of 3o so far succeeded) d/c) and gives me *network instability*, so I'm guessing it's from the NAT being restrict. So can someone please help me on how to set up NAT for my Wii to be open?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that wii's are wireless G only. YOu should have two channels in your router. Set 1 to wireless G only and the other to wireless N only. I have had problems with wireless G on any other security setting other then WEP. Just a quick thought

    You should go to 192.168.1.1 and go to "DMZ". Then enter the IP of your Wii. It should forward all ports associated with your Wii and give you a better connection.
    However, it will completely expose your Wii to the internet. So "Port Forwarding" would be the safest route if you know which ports the Wii uses. I don't know which ports though, sorry.

    Allowing TCP and UDP Traffic:
    The Wii console may require unrestricted access to several sites across various ports and protocols to function correctly. These addresses and ports vary, and may change in the future without notice. Many software firewalls restrict outbound access. Only if your firewall blocks outbound traffic do you need to enable this traffic:

    TCP:
    Allow traffic to all destinations on ports: 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, and 443

    The wii being exposed wouldn't bother me as much as every other device on your network being exposed to the internet because of the DMZ setting. Not a good idea in most cases to enable it. You may have to find a Friend or a family member that know a little bit about routers and networking and see if they can help you out. It will have to be some hands on settings and configuration in the router.

    This is my 6th account

    I must respectfully disagree with you Krafter, as what you said in your last post is completely wrong.

    On a Linksys router, if you enable the DMZ, you are required to input whatever IP or MAC address you want exposed. You can only enter ONE(1) IP or MAC address. So you would not be exposing everything to the web, JUST the IP or MAC address you typed in the box. So if you put your Wii's IP or MAC address in that box, you would only be exposing your Wii to the web.

    [edit]
    Exposing your Wii would give you a better connection to the internet. It lets all traffic to and from you Wii, go as it pleases.

    Well at least you know how to conduct yourself, instead of ppl who end up getting banned and creating 6 or more accounts.
