Milton, originally uploaded by smithco.

I got a Sock Monkey kit for Christmas. It contained a pair of socks, some thread, needles, some fabric and sewing instructions.

He's named for the Top Banana, Milton Berle. He's a little lumpy, his ears uneven and his hat's a bit too large. But, he's my monkey.

The Wii and the D-Link WBR-2310 (error code 52040)

Hooray! Santa brought me a Wii for Christmas. Boo! Attempting to connect to the internet gave me error code 52030.

The set up I have is a Wii and a D-Link WBR-2310 wireless router. Usually, this router just works without any problems. But, it sure didn't like my Wii. I went through a whole swath of experiments with the settings, but I could not find a solution.

However, after a while, it occurred to me that I should try a firmware update for the router. And, Hurray! the firmware upgrade fixed it all. Now, I can enjoy the best weather forecast available and participate in odd polls.

So the lesson is, the D-Link WBR-2310 with firmware 1.02 does not work with the Wii, but upgrading to 1.04 does.
