Hi, I have a bush smart TV which came with a dongle. We have very fast internet speeds. When we go on Netflix etc it connects fine but after about 30 mins or so the connection becomes delayed and...

A dongle... There's your problems right there as to why the internet is lacking. Look on your tv for an ethernet port or check in the tv menu for a wifi option.

wifi will be easy and no cords, but wired with an Ethernet cable sometimes brings better speed and more reliability..

I have an AT&T internet USB connection for my laptop can i use the same one for my wii and if so how do i go about setting it up

You cannot plug the AT&T internet USB Connection directly into the Wii. The Wii wasn't programmed to support such a device and Nintendo probably will never add support to it. However, you can plug the AT&T Internet USB dongle into your laptop and use Internet Connection Sharing to share the internet connection to the Wii.

In the main menu of the Wii, with all the channels, "click Wii Options" Then go to "Wii Settings" Click on the right arrow and choose internet. Enter your PIN number then choose "OK" Then choose "Connection Settings" Then choose an unused connection. Then, if your connection's wireless, choose either "Access Point" or "Wi-Fi" Then choose your connection. If connection is secured, enter password and choose "OK" Then choose "Use this connection"
If connection is wired, choose "OK" Then choose "Use this connection"
Your Wii console should be connected to the internet.

When I put the wii fit disc into the console the tv screen says that a update is needed.I follow the instructions of the update but every time the message update has failed.What am I doing wrong?

Do you have your Wii connected to the Internet? The Wii does its updates over the Internet, so you will need to setup a wireless connection, or buy a USB dongle to connect to the Internet using a cable.

I have mobile broadband with 3 on usb stick can my wii connect to internet with this

No the 3 dongle requires you to be able to physically dial up the connection in order to connect. There is no function for this on the wii so you'll have to use either a wireless network nearby or get broadband down a phone line.

Wii will not power down.

Press the power button on WII remote #1 and hold until the console shuts down. Could take several seconds.

You need to go into Wii settings (use the home button on the Wiimote) and enter your wireless key. You should be able to find this key (a string of letters and numbers) on the bottom of your wireless router.
