I right now have my router set to WPA/TKIP, which offers good security and allows the Wii to connect to the internet/network/online. However, I want the best security so I switched it WPA2/AES. Unfortunately, I could not connect online with the Wii console, when using the WPA2/AES or WPA2/TKIP password security settings. On the other hand, my laptop was able to connect my network with WPA2/AES security. But the Wii can't. I have tried googling for answers but only found a bunch of forum posts, which provided tips that did not work.

Any suggestions/tips to get my Wii console to connect to my wireless network with WPA2/AES security?

I know this forum, may not be the right place to post about Nintendo Wii technical problems but there has to some Wii owners, according to the size of this forum. The only thing I am worried about is if I posted in the right section. I figured my problem has to do with networking.

Is the Wii able to use WPA2/AES because my guess it's unable to use that technology. Is it an option to use it on the Wii?

Yes it is possible. It is has an option in the "Wii Menu" internet settings to set the security levels ranging from none-WEP-WPA-WPA2 and the option to use TKIP or AES. I want the most security possible for my network by using the WPA2(AES) mode.
