Question about Nintendo Wii Console
WiiConnect24 allows the console to receive downloads even when
the console isn't in active use, as long as it has a working connection
to the internet. The types of information
that can be received include News and Weather, messages posted to
the Wii Message Board, and any messages sent by Nintendo about new
Wii console features.
This disc slot of the Wii console will illuminate to indicate that you have received new information from WiiConnect24.
To Access the WiiConnect24 setting:
When WiiConnect24 is turned on, your Wii console will automatically use its high-speed internet connection to accept data for a variety of services, including posting messages on the Wii Message Board and receiving messages from Nintendo about new Wii features. Turn WiiConnet24 "off" if you don't want to receive this information.
