Cant connect my Wii to the internet for net flix viewing


Netflix has come a long way since 1997.
What began as a disc-based mail-order rental service has become one of the pioneers of digital distribution.
Netflix's digital distribution service offers thousands of movies and televisions shows that users can watch instantly from a variety of devices, such as the iPhone, PC and the Nintendo Wii.
Netflix is not available immediately on your Wii when you first turn it on; you must download the program from Nintendo's Wii Shop before you can begin using it.

Select the "Wii Shop" channel on the Wii's main menu and choose "Start."
Select "Start Shopping" and choose "Wii Channels."

Select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii."
Select "Free 0 Wii Points" to begin the download.
Choose the location where you will save Netflix.
You can select either the Wii System Memory or an SD card.

Select "OK" and select "Yes."
Your download will begin, and a Netflix channel will appear on the Wii's main menu.

Select the "Netflix" channel, located on the Wii's main menu, and choose "Start" to launch Netflix. The first-time setup screen will appear.
Select "Yes" to indicate you are a current Netflix subscriber.
If you are not, you cannot use the service until you sign up at the Netflix website.

Enter your Netflix email address and password. Select "Continue."
Select a television show or movie in any category to begin watching it instantly.

Setting up wii for netflix


Netflix Instant is available for streaming on your Wii gaming console by early spring 2010. If you have a Netflix subscription you can watch movies and episodes easily on your TV through your Wii console. This article will detail the important things you will need to make sure that you can watch Netflix from the Wii.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions Things You'll Need

  • Netflix subscription
  • Nintendo Wii gaming console
  • Broadband internet
    • 1 Check you Netflix subscription. The minimum subscription plan to watch Netflix instantly is the unlimited 1 DVD at a time plan or otherwise the $8.99 plan. This plan allows to watch movies instantly with unlimited monthly hours.
    • 2 Check internet bandwidth on your broadband connection. According to Netflix the minimum bandwidth requirement is 1.5Mbps. Netflix recommends for watching movies instantly a 3.0Mbps connection. Check with your internet service provider to confirm that these download speeds.
    • 3 A wired connection to your Wii console. An ethernet connection to your Wii console would be preferable. Unfortunately the Wii console does not have an ethernet port but a USB port. A USB LAN Adapter can be found at most computer supply merchants or online from Wii or Amazon.com. The ethernet connection is an ethernet wire from your home LAN router connected to your USB LAN adapter. The USB LAN adapter is then connected to the USB port on the Wii console. This connection will be how Netflix provides the movie streaming feed to the Wii.
    • 4 Sign up at the Netflix website for the Streaming Disc. Netflix will send a specially programmed disc to setup the Wii for watching the movies. When the disc arrives Netflix will provide instructions on how to install onto the Wii gaming console.

    • If you have a Club Nintendo Membership, enter your User Name and Password, then select "Link" on the right.
    • If you do not have a Club Nintendo Membership, leave the fields blank and select "Do not link" on the left.
  4. Select "Wii Channels" from the Wii Shop Channel main menu, then select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii." Select "Free 0 Wii Points" to begin the download.

Connect your Wii console to your Netflix account
Before you can watch TV episodes and movies streaming from Netflix, you will need to connect your Wii console to your Netflix account.

  1. On your Wii
    If you're not already on this screen on your television, select Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii from the Wii menu. (Don't have this option?) On this screen you will be presented with a code; remain on this screen during the activation process.

  2. On your home computer
    Using an online device other than your Wii console - such as a PC, Mac, or Web-enabled phone - go to http://www.netflix.com/wii. (You will need to log into your Netflix account if you're not already logged in.)
  3. Still on your home computer
    Enter the code displayed on your television into the box on the bottom Netflix Web page, then click "Activate Now." (The code is case sensitive.)

  4. Back to your Wii
    Netflix will now attempt to activate the connection to your Wii console. This may take several minutes. When the process is complete, the Wii will automatically display your queue. (The screen on your computer will not change. Wait for the screen displayed by the Wii on your TV to indicate the activation has finished before going to another Web page.)

  5. And finally, watch TV episodes and movies streaming from Netflix on your Wii console by selecting the Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii on the Wii main menu.

Netflix wont play on my wii right now, but does work on my pc, so it's not a nerwork problem. any suggestions?


There are a few things that could be preventing this from working. First, if I recall correctly Wii still requires the special Netflix disk to play any movies, so make sure you have that and it's in the console. If you don't have it, log onto Netflix from your computer and you can easily have it sent to you. It's free, so no worries there.

Now if you have the disk, and you still can't get Netflix to work, make sure that your Wii is registered on Netflix. Again, this can be done from the Netflix website. To check what you have registered to your account just;

Log on to Netflix.
Click "Your account and Help" at the top right of your browser.
Scroll down to "WATCHING INSTANTLY ON YOUR TV OR COMPUTER"
Click on "Manage Netflix ready devices and computer"

Now you'll see a list of devices that are registered to your Netflix account. Make sure your Wii is on there, and if not, then you'll have to re-register your Wii in order for it to work.

If none of this works, then double check your internet connection and be sure your Wii is properly connecting to the internet.

Please leave a comment or rating letting me know if this was helpful or not, feedback is always welcome. Good luck with your Wii, and Netflix.
