Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.

(For assistance with locating the MAC Filtering section of your router’s setup tool, please consult the router’s manual or contact the manufacturer.)

Be interested to find out about this, have a friend who has the exact same problem, Running a Netgear From SKY... has been previously working then about a week or 2 ago just stopped connecting and getting the same errors as the OPs getting.

The Wii i was having trouble with was on software 3.3e, so have you upgraded to anything since you have managed to get back on line with it?

May just have been a dodgy update and the Sky Router.
