Topic: Can't connect to Wii Shop Channel via Wii U

Posts 1 to 2 of 2



I can connect to the Wii U's eShop, and other online features just fine, but for some reason when I go to Wii Mode - > Wii Shop Channel, I get stuck in the first, with the blue ring keep spinning over and over...

Only solution for me to turn off the console is to actually disconnect the cord (no other way, sadly).

Tried restarting the router, Wii U, etc... with no luck. I even contacted Nintendo UK and they said there are no issues with the Wii Shop Channel, and I am the first one who mentions that there is an issue (Well, maybe no one uses this channel anymore... I just want to redownload some games ).

I am not using WPA2-PSK connection (Not working with Wii), so it should be fine.

Last time I sucessfully connected to the Wii Shop Channel, was around 1-2 years ago, and I haven't seen any news that the Wii Shop Channel is down, so...

Anyone else have a similar problem? I am using (not actively, of course) the Wii Shop Channel for over 10 years, so I know how it should work or not, but this time I can't solve this problem .




Solved this.

Found my LAN Wii adapter and connected to the internet via Wired connection, and it worked perfectly.

Shocking... I guess wi-fi is not so Wii Shop Channel friendly anymore .
