not me... not yet, anyway. Wii Sports got maybe an hour's worth of use outta me and has been collecting dust ever since; i can easily see WSR going the same way. i may change my mind later on if/when i see it come up used someplace, though. ::shrug::

@Stuffgamer1: digestive biscuits... they're kinda like cookies or graham crackers, only not as sweet, and they disintegrate pretty quick if you dip them in a drink. :3

(b) it wouldn't be the first time Nintendo has ignored or passed up interesting things submitted to them... after all, the dudes who discovered the exploit in Twilight Princess tried to contact Nintendo about the potential security flaw and were ignored.

I tried in a couple of posts before to direct you to people who CAN help you (Nintendo's own tech support forums) and things you CAN try (since you're having problems, there's a toll-free number to get help straight from Nintendo) as opposed to continuing to ask here, because we're not all tech support gurus, nor do we all use an Airport router (and some of us who do have not had the same problems you have). Allow me to try the blunt approach this time (and please don't take this badly, it is frustrating to see someone asking the right questions in the wrong place and not getting the answers they need):

You are obviously not getting the help you need from this thread. Please try asking your questions on a forum specifically for tech help (like http://techforums.nintendo.com/nins/, Nintendo's own tech support forum made specifically for questions like the ones you have) OR, as you have tried a couple things and are still having issues, contact Nintendo themselves at 1-800-255-3700 between the hours of 6a and 7p Pacific Time, seven days a week, and they will help you.

@mrmicawber: last i checked, you were the last person here with any kind of right to talk about someone like that, especially since you bring the ego and grandstanding without the legitimate point. :P

(not to say that Chatham is actually guilty of that -- he works behind the scenes, he tests games for a living, he has a right to take this kind of thing personally if he found it so quickly. perhaps GG should hire them some new testers [or some testers period, if they're testing the games themselves].)

@Lugas: here's the condensed not-so-wall-of-text version, then:

  • The problem could be on Nintendo's end, especially while trying to play online with a newly-released or very popular game, or if there has been a new Wii System update recently. Please try again later, when traffic may have slacked off.
  • You can only connect via Cable, DSL, or Fiber-Optic internet connections. Anything else (Satelite, Cellular, Dial-Up, etc.) will not work.
  • You may need to switch the channel setting on your router.
  • Some games may require certain settings to be changed on your router, including UDP and firewall settings. You'll need to search support.nintendo.com for the list (just look up your error code again and it'll be inline linked in the answer). You may also want to check out Nintendo's Tech Support Forums (also available via support.nintendo.com); other users might be having the same problem and a solution may have already come up in a thread there.

If you have tried all of the above and you are still encountering the same error for a period of at least a few hours, call 1-800-255-3700 between the hours of 6a and 7p Pacific Time, seven days a week for help from Nintendo.
