Build a network at home (appliances and game consoles)

Connecting a digital high-definition LCD TV

 In order to enjoy viewer-participation-type programs on digital TV broadcast interactive services, it is necessary to be connected to the Internet. The settings are easy, so connect to the network and enjoy.

The TV used in the introduction here is an old one, but basically the setting is the same for a new TV.

 Press the 'blue', 'red', 'green' and 'yellow' buttons to enjoy an audience participation program. You can enjoy the two-way service, so let's connect! I would like to say, but the current situation is that there are not many viewer-participation programs. The manager only uses it once a year for the NHK Kouhaku Uta Gassen.

First, connect the TV to your home LAN with a LAN cable.

By the way, the TV owned by the manager is set like this.

* Since the setting method differs depending on the TV, please refer to the manual attached to the TV for details.

Make "communication settings" in the digital broadcast settings.

You can set the telephone line and network settings, but to connect to your home LAN, select the "Network" setting.

 You can select either "Use DHCP" or "Specify a fixed IP address". If you have a DHCP server at home, simply select "Use DHCP" to complete the network settings.

 You will now be able to connect to the Internet, but if your access point is set to filter by MAC address, you will need to find out the TV's MAC address and register it with Access Pinto.

Of course, TVs also have MAC addresses.

Nintendo Wii Wi-Fi connection

The following article is a little old about Nintendo Switch, but basically the items to be set are the same regardless of whether it is PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Wii network settings.

 Wii is based on the development concept of "increase the number of channels on your home TV". Since it's a game machine, you can boot the disc and play games, but using "WiiConnect24" makes using the Wii even more enjoyable.

 The fun of Wii spreads by connecting to the Internet, such as information distribution channels and creative channels linked to game software.

 In the "Wii Shop Channel", you can purchase and download "Virtual Console" compatible software and newly added channels. In addition to credit cards, Wii Point Prepaid Cards can be used for payment.

By the way, the manager immediately downloaded the Famicom software and the PC Engine software that he enjoyed as a child.

●Network settings

 The Wii has a built-in wireless function as standard. You can connect to the Internet just by setting the wireless. If you don't have an access point at home, you will need to purchase a separate Wii LAN adapter to connect to the Internet.

By the way, the Wii owned by the administrator has wireless settings.

Wi-Fi connection for Nintendo Wii

Set the settings of the Wii console.

Click "Wii"

Click "Wii System Settings".

In Wii Settings 2, select "Internet".

Select "Connection Settings".

Select "Destination 1".

Set "SSID".

 Select "Security type". Here you need to set the same encryption for the wireless that you have set for your access point.

 Regarding the IP address automatic acquisition setting, if you have a DHCP server at home, select "Yes". If you have not built a DHCP server, you need to set the IP address, etc. If you are a manager, you are building a DHCP server at home, so select "Yes" here.

By the way, if you have not built a DHCP server, set the IP address information manually on the screen in the figure below.

It is a setting of "DNS automatic acquisition". If you have a DHCP server at home, select "Yes".

In addition, there are "Proxy settings" and "MTU value" settings. Configure the settings according to your home network environment.

After completing the configuration, try a connection test. If the connection is successful, the screen below will appear.

 You will now be able to connect to the Internet, but if your access point is set to filter by MAC address, you will need to check the Wii's MAC address and register it in Access Pinto.

Of course, the Wii also has a MAC address.

 Wii network settings are now complete. With this, you will be able to enjoy information distribution channels and creative channels linked to game software.

Nintendo DS Lite Wi-Fi connection

Introduces network settings for mobile game consoles.

Although it is a network setting for Nintendo DS Lite, basically it is necessary to make the same setting for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch.

From here, we will introduce the network settings of the Nintendo DS Lite.

 If you use "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection", you can use the world's first wireless internet service where you can enjoy games for free with friends not only in Japan but around the world.

To use it, if you have a wireless internet environment, you only need the DS itself and compatible software.

 Even if you can't gather your friends on the spot, you can play against friends all over Japan or anyone in the world through the Internet at any time.

● Wi-Fi connection settings

To connect to the Internet, configure the network settings in "Wi-Fi connection settings".

If you are using an access point that supports "AOSS" and "Rakuraku Wireless Start", the settings are very easy.

By the way, the Nintendo DS owned by the administrator is set manually.

Enter the "SSID" set for the access point and set it to automatically obtain an IP address.

Since the administrator's home has a DHCP server, it is set to "Automatic acquisition of IP address".

 Specify either "No" or "Yes" for "Automatically obtain DNS" according to your home network environment.

By the way, if you use the "Nintendo DS Browser", you can surf the net.

When the website was displayed with the "Nintendo DS browser", it was displayed as shown below.
