Ok so far heres what works, entering in everything manually.

1. Go into connection types, Hit "Manual Configuration"

2. Input your SSID

3. Input the correct security type, this is key.

4. Put your password in properly

5. For ip address "Do not auto obtain".

6. open up cmd in your computer, type in ipconfig

7. Now input that ip address but add 10 to the last number so "" will be entered as ""

8. Enter the rest of your info inside such as subnet mask and default gateway exactly as you see it in your ipconfig.

9. Now hit next, hit configure now for your DNS. When asked about DNS hit "Dont auto obtain".

10. For the first server put in

11. For the second server put in

12. Hit Next, when asked about a proxy hit no proxy

13. Leave mtu as the default

14. it should work, if not check the ip and that it is the internet ip + 10. Good luck

he posted googles dns servers, which is fine but for those of you that want to use your local isp dns servers like your computer and other devices are using pull up cmd prompt and type this

ipconfig /all

scroll up till the section that lists dns servers and you can use those if you prefer. or you can use googles, or opendns, or others.

just tossing that out there for options. supposedly googles dns servers are supposed to be faster but I haven't really spent the time testing it to find out.

either way gl all.

lyd, no he didn't not affect your security.

he had you assign a manual ip address instead of letting dhcp handle it automatically because for some reason the wii u has not been playing nice with dhcp through wifi for some people.

he just had you do some steps manually that always happen but normally behind the scenes where you won't see it because it wasn't happening automatically like it should.
