    Yep, I have the same problem. Pressing reset doesn't work, yet I can play against "Continental" and "worldwide" users without a problem. Very frustrating.

This may or may not be a solution but....with my quantum of solace, couldnt get online at all, but after a while they fixed it...its wierd but I was one of a few that had that problem...I can play friends on MC wii no prob.. so call nintendo ask about the platform.....or erase your connection settings(wired and wireless) make new connections..if that dont work try erasing your profile and friends numbers(of course, have them do the same and communicate them back to put the FCs back in) IF THAT dont work wait it's probable like my quantum of solace,not working for me but for others....one of the others above said they could play worldwide and regional...so you know its not something serious....good luck

What is error code 91010? After playing Mario Kart


Try these:Error Code: 91010 Our experience shows that error messages within this range are typically caused by an unstable network connection. The issue could be with your connection environment, your friend's connection environment, or a temporary issue with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Our servers may be trying to handle an unusually high amount of traffic (especially if you are trying to play online with a recently-released or popular game, or if there is a new Wii system update). Please retry your connection later
If you have waited a few hours and are still experiencing issues, try the following:

  1. How are you connecting online? The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is only compatible with Cable, DSL, and Fiber-optic internet connections. If you are connecting via Satellite, EV-DO (cellular), Dial-up, or other types of connections, then you should try to use an alternate type of connection. Contact your Internet Service Provider if you are not sure what type of internet connection you have.

  2. The error may be caused by a basic setting on the router that needs to be adjusted (such as the channel). Please review our general router troubleshooting.

  3. Some games may need certain settings on your router enabled or disabled to allow a successful connection with other players. This can include UDP and firewall settings that will vary from router to router. You can view our router pages by clicking here. If your router is listed, check to see if there are any special notes that may help. If there is no information for your particular router or you need further assistance, check out Nintendo's Tech Support Forums. Other users may have already found the solution you're looking for.
If you have tried all of the steps above with no success and you have been encountering the error for a period of at least a few hours,please call 1-800-255-3700. Our representatives are available between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time, seven days a week.

My little brother and friend want to play wii mario kart wii together. They are in the nintendo WFC and have both connected, but can't figure out how to actually PLAY a game, help?


You need to install the Mario Kart Channel.

When you are in the Mario Kart Wii game, go to the "Select License" screen.

Click on the "Settings" icon in the top right corner.

Select "Mario Kart Channel.

"yes"

"Install."

your friend will need to tell you their 12 digit friend code. They can find it by going to the Mario Kart Wii Channel Select License screen.

Chose their profile.

Select "Friends".

Their 12-digit friend code will be displayed near the bottom of the scree

from the Mario Kart Wii Channel Select License screen, chose your player profile.

Select Nintendo WFC - either 1 or 2 player.

Select "Friends"

Select "Register a Friend."

Enter your friend's 12 digit code, then select "OK" to confirm.

My friend and I both registered our numbers for Mario Kart but when it tries to connect us we get an error and it says the connection has failed. I don't know what to do to make it work.


One of you must first create a room, then the other uses "find a friend" to join you in that room. Once you are connected in the room you can send messages to each other. When ready, the room creator clicks on the "Close" button and a menu of game choices opens up. After selecting the game, you will both go through the screens to select your characters and vehicles. You get to vote on the course and you are then off to the races.

To create a room, go to the Nintendo WFC choice on the Mario Kart game main menu (the screen after you select your licence). I have not found a way to create a room by going directly through the Mario Kart Channel, so you need to enter through the game itself. Select one or two players in the Nintendo WFC box (depending how many players will be racing on your end). Your remote friend does the same on his/her end. You choose "Friends" on the next screen and then "Create a Room". You then wait for your friend to join you. Have fun ... David

My Mario Kart driver's license got deleted


Any of your contacts who play you will have had to use your license to be able to connect to you so they should have it in their FRIENDS, try getting it back that way and re-registering yourself. If you write it down on paper and store it somewhere safe and lose it again you can re-enter it. This way your contacts don't have to re-register you under a new license and you don't have to create a new one.

Error code 51331


If you got error code 51331, this basically means you can't connect to the Internet because of wireless interference.

Try these:
Move your router away from metal objects such as metal cabinets, and place it in a central location in your home.

Do not use other wireless devices while trying to connect to the Internet.

Avoid devices that use a 2.4GHz radio frequency. Look for devices that use a 5.8GHz or 900MHz frequency.

Change the channel on your router to 1 or 11, as these don't overlap.

If you have encyrption on your router, make the WEP/WPA key is correct.

Change the mode on your router to "mixed" or "b/g" mode.

Hope this helps!

Mario Kart no start up


if you have upgraded your software on your wii, your freeloader won't work anymore. Mario carts is written in a way to stop people using programs such as freeloader. Its something called signed trucha, other people will not more. You could try buying a UK mario cart on ebay and trying that. Otherwise, looking into getting it mod chipped to overcome the region barriers. But always buy original games for it

Cannot meet up with friend- Mario Kart Wii


I have the same problem but I think we have to use the Nintendo WFC window, and there you can either create a room to play with friends or just play normally.

Mario cart will not recognize my second remote.


Another possibility is that the original poster did not push the "+" button on the main remote when on the screen in Mario Kart to register additional remotes.

This happened to me. I was holding down the 1 and 2 buttons over and over on the second remote, watching the blue lights flash, but the remote wouldn't register. Eventually someone noticed the instructions on the screen to push the "+" button. When you push the "+" button, another screen appears to let you really register additional remotes.

In Wii Sports, there is no pushing of the "+" button to register new remotes... I had incorrectly assumed it worked the same way in Mario Kart and didn't bother reading the on-screen instructions.
