Error code 209826. Is this with a Wii? Error code references "Problem connecting to the Wii Shop channel. Either a problem with the router or the Wii Shop may be temporarily
down. Try again later."
I recommend turning off the Wii completely. Check the wireless router and unplug the router, but do not disconnect the cable. Keep powered off for 5 minutes. Plug router back in, let all the lights power up and then turn the Wii on and attempt to connect again. Should the issue continue, you may need to go through the Wii network set up and verify that it is communicating with the router.
Error Code: 204038
The Wii console was unable to connect to the Wii Shop Channel.
Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Wii console is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal. (For instance, if the Wii is placed in a crowded entertainment center, try moving the Wii somewhere with more room.)
Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.
There could be a temporary network issue with Nintendo's servers. Please wait a few hours and try to access the Internet Channel again.
If the above steps did not resolve your issue, please call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance.
This code, among others, is a general error code in response to the Wii or Wii U being unable to connect to a Nintendo Shopping Channel server. If no other devices have internet connectivity issues through your wireless network, then the Nintendo server is not working at the moment. If you are attempting to connect on Monday or pre-dawn on Tuesday, the server is likely undergoing weekly maintenance which can last up to 4 hours.
I know, right? 4 hours every week? I guess Nintendo doesn't have the type of management that concerns itself with why Shop Channel sales drop drastically on Mondays or why return rates skyrocket on Tuesdays. Frustrating!
Anyway, if you are among the unlucky to have received Wii points or a digital game for Christmas in 2013, put it away and figure out a way to play with the scarf your granny got you. The server has been down for over 24 hours and is showing no sign of recovery anytime soon.
There may be a problem with your connection on the Wii. I would try erasing the connection on the Wii and starting over. If that still doesn't work, when is the last time you updated?
The Wii may not be able to use the wireless it has because of the broadcast channel from the router. You would need to go into the routers settings and change the channel to either 1 or 11. The default is usually 6 but that tends to be weak. Retry the connection.
051030 is a 'too busy' error, so it's probably an issue with Nintendo's servers rather than your wii.
In this case all you can is try again later.
It can also be caused by interference of other wireless networks in the neighbourhood. If this is the case try changing the WLAN channel of your wii to 11, as most routers default channel is 6, this will give your fequency a bit of seperation from the other wireless connections.
you know, this have happened to me before, and i know how to fix it. you require two things to use this channel: 1. you must have a internet connection that works. (wireless, wired, wifi usb connecter) 2. you have to agree to the user agreements.
also don't forget to update your wii. well that's all i can say about it.
