Are you using the MiKe kernel via BootMii? If not, WiFi won't work I don't think. If you are, I have no other ideas to suggest.

Yes - I'm using Mike p5.

I take that back. I'm using Mike p5 but not BootMii. I'm now battleing against the difficult instructions to try to work out how to install BootMii - thanks for the guidance.

Hmm. I created a directory /apps/bootmii in the first partition of my SD card and copied "boot.elf" from hackmii_installer_v1.2/boot.elf and Homebrew Channel gave be a blank icon. I opened it and something started - it said I have two options, IOS and boot2, but boot2 isn't available, I assume because I have a new boot1 as mentioned in README-BootMii.txt. That's OK, I should be able to choose IOS, but the keyboard won't "up arrow" to that line :-( Stuck again...

The keyboard? Shouldnt you be using the Wii Remote for the Hackmii Installer?

Should I? There's nothing in the instructions (well that I can find anyway), so it is rather guess work.

The Hackmii Installer uses the Wii Remote, yes. Dont you have to push "1" to get past the scam warning?

Better - iwconfig now lists wlan0. Yes!

Next failure is accesing the LAN to get a DHCP response. I've been using whiite-ez-wifi-config but to no avail. We have WEP 64-Bit - which option is that? Mind you I've tried all 3 options and double checked the SSID and KEY that I type in and had someone else check as I type, I've entered it in correctly.

I've tried with another Wi-Fi network. No dice.
