It can't seem to sense my router but it does sense other routers... I wonder why? I tried using the manual guide found here : http://kotaku.com/if...this-1442764101

but it still won't work....

Can other devices connect within the same range as where your Wii U is?

Hmm, you shouldn't have too. Was it connected before and now just having issues, or are you connecting for 1st time?

Try setting your router to broadcast in either just n or b+g mode. Some times the mixed mode (b+g+n) will cause issues with some devices seeing the router. If this does not work I would try disabling any type of "speed" setting the router might have claming to bump speeds to 300mbps. These modes change how the router handles the 2.4ghz and 5ghz traffic and can also cause issues with devices seeing the router.
