Problems with wireless connection

I'm trying to connect my Wii (via wireless), and using either automatic or manual network settings my attempts to connect all fail with error 52230. I've unplugged the system for a couple of minutes, and it still fails to connect. It gets an IP address, tries to connect to http://conntest.nintendowifi.net/ and fails. I can go to this site on my laptop, so I don't think that it's a problem with the connection being blocked.

 

A few months ago we switched from Comcast to Verizon FIOS, and I think that this is the first time that we've tried to connect to the Internet since then, but I can't swear to it.

 

I haven't yet called into support, but that's the next step after this. Is there anything that I might be missing?
