Hey 44helpmouse,

 

Thanks for posting and a big welcome to the community Smiley Very Happy

 

Sorry to hear that you're unable to connect your Wii U to your Hub 3.

 

I seem to remember that the Wii U needs to connect to a network with a WEP key.

 

The Hub 3 doesn't have this feature as it's not considered a secure encryption type. To be able to use a WEP key, you'll need to use a 3rd party router.

 

I do apologise for this, let me know if you have any other questions.

Take care.

Wii U

  • Wireless Frequency: 2.4GHz Frequency
  • Wireless Modes: 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n
  • Wireless Security Modes: WEP, WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (TKIP)

So no, it doesn't require WEP, you're thinking of the older consoles like the original DS which only used WEP, that being said i'm not sure, you would have to check that the wireless mode its currently set to is one of those and that the 2.4ghz radio is enabled as the WiiU doesn't support 5ghz
