Connecting a Nintendo DS/Wii to an Airport Express

I was trying to do this, and it was driving me up the wall. I put it in WEP mode, but the DS/Wii wouldn't take the password.

The trick is you need to use the HEX password, which is not what Apple uses by default.

You need to use "Equivalent Network Password" to see the WEP code the DS/Wii will want. Once you have this, it'll connect quite easily.

Of course if you're only using a Wii, you should use WPA2.

So I changed my settings to a WEP password and used the HEX password but it still didn't work. I have an airport express and a ds lite.
