Wii's Killer App: YouTube

I managed to get my Wii online. If you're having problems (error code: 51330) connecting it to your wireless router and you've already properly set the SSID, encryption type (WEP, WPA, or WPA2), and the password, remember to set your router to 802.11b only or mixed mode (802.11b/g).

I found out that the firmware in most Nintendo Wii's only support 802.11b out of the box. When you successfully connect to the net, the Wii will prompt for a firmware upgrade and that will enable 802.11g. So after the upgrade, you can set your router back to 802.11g only and you should be running fine.

Lexus IS 250 AWD (missing photos)

Scarborough Lexus Toyota

A showroom desert sage metallic IS 250 AWD

Angry eye rear lights

The road test black IS 250 AWD

A great looking Lexus that's small, easy to maneuver in the parking lot, travels smoothly over the potholed roads of Toronto, and has a fairly smooth V6 engine.

Sore points are poor steering wheel feedback, unbearable delay with gear changes made with the manumatic mode, and questionable interior quality like the cheap plastic roof opener switch.
