Wii stuck on download screen

Not sure if anyone is here to help, but I seem to have a problem. Got my new Wii today and set it all up in a few minutes. As I set the Wifi connection up to my router, up came an onscreen prompt to download an update, which I confirmed, expecting it to take a few minutes. That was at about 12.15 pm today. It is now fast approaching 5pm and it is still stuck on the download (the bar hasn't moved for hours) I did ring the Nintendo helpdesk at about 1pm before going out, but they assured me the first download could take hours, maybe even overnight, especially if their server was particularly busy. Does this sound right? I am growing increasingly convinced that it has crashed and burned, so to speak.

    Thanks for the reply. In the end, I pressed reset then inserted Mario Strikers Charged to get the first update sorted. After that I went back online for the second update and it worked no probs.

    However, after setting everything up successfully, including getting the Internet Channel and some VC games downloaded, it then decided that it could no longer pick up my wifi router signal, so I am now trying to work out what has changed.

    I was online for ages, browsing the web and setting up favourites, then suddenly up came an error message and I haven't been able to get back online since.

    I've been browsing forums and this seems to be a common problem, unfortunately. The router is already set to channel 11, so I can't change that, and it is only situated about 4 metres from the Wii (in the next room) so the signal should not be weak.

    I'm sure I'll crack it, it's just proving to be a bit more troublesome than I expected.

Unable to connect to the Internet Confirm the Internet settings of the wii console. Error code 50299.


Go to internet options on your Wii settings, select internet, and then connection settings. Once that is done you will be able to see the wifi connection. Click the wifi connection and delete it. Try to reconnect the Wii to your wifi router and you should have success connecting to the internet. If it doesn't connect repeat the steps listed above.

I can't get connected to Netflix. I keep getting error 51030


That sounds like a Nitendo Wii errorcode; assuming your using that to watch Netflix:

From the tech support website: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/results.jsp?error_code=51030&system=Wii&locale=en_US

Error Code: 51030
Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: Your wireless router may need to be power cycled, or the connection settings have changed.
How to fix: Power cycle your router; redo the connection settings on the Wii and try again.
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response.
  • Erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected. We suggest following our guide to create a new connection file and start over. If at the end you still need help, you'll find contact information to reach our specially-trained representatives.

Wont connect to net error 51030


Hello there!

Usually this error is due to your Wii not being able to connect to your wifi network. Here are two possible solutions:

  • If your connection used to work but suddenly stopped:
"Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii online and test for proper response.
  • If not:
Erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected. I suggest following this great guide and redoing the connection settings. If problems persist, please call then Nintendo support line at 1-800-895-1672.

Can't get 2 remotes on at the same time


You have to start the game then press the home button on the remote. Go to WII and select the menu for the remotes. Click on reconnect. Press the 1-2 buttons on remote #1. When it lights up on the screen, press the 1-2 buttons on remote #2. Select close out remote settings, go back to the game. Select two players and each player can have his/her own remote.
