Hello guys,

Bought a Wii U Basic brand new on first day and unfortunately had not have a single chance to use the system.

Well, I want to play a Wii game on it. And I must do a update first. My firmware version is the first one launched.

Okay, then I tried to do a wireless connection. And it failed badly. After many tries, I noticed the router signal (800.11g) was too weak where my Wii U is and, for that reason, the connection never succeded.

Then I bought a brand new router. A powerful one with two antennas, 5dBI each, 800.11n signal. Then, tried to do the connection. Okay, now it worked!

Then Wii U prompted me to do the big update. And it fails, one or two seconds after it starts. Error codes? 105-4011, 105-4207

Then I tried to connect to a very slow 3G smartphone very near to the Wii U. Same thing. Connection succeds, but not the update.

Man, I officially give up. My old Wii connected just fine. Slow, but fine and the router was far inferior. My 3DS connects fine with my current router, despite the fact it is very near of it.

I have heard the Nintendo serves might be busy. But checked below and it says otherwise.

I can't move my Wii U closer to the router. So, I am out of ideas.

Thank you very much for all who help me on this.

Go to Nintendo.com, and look up the codes in the support section.

This is what came up when I typed in the codes. I'm not really sure. You'd be better off just calling Nintendo and having them instruct you on how to optimize your settings for Wii U if it can't connect otherwise.

Thank you so much for your attention.

I have read this. Tried to configure the IP manually and the connection didn't even worked. The Nintendo servers, second the website, are normal. The other solution, "Check for wireless interference", it's something I can't do. My old Wii connected in the same place where the Wii U is with a very inferior router.

Since I live in Brazil, I think I can't call Nintendo. Nintendo of Brazil does not support Wii U yet here. Haha. I am officially lost.

Maybe you can call Nintendo of America for help. If Nintendo of Brazil hasn't distributed Wii U consoles in your area, that may be why the network isn't available in your area.
Does anyone else you know have a Wii U, and did you import it from the U.S.?

Can your Router see the Wii U? The way you are wording the issue is that you can talk to router but it cant reach outside.
