Using the Left Stick, select the Internet icon and press the A Button.
Select Connect to the Internet.
The Wii U will search for available Wi-Fi networks in your area.
Once the search completes, use the Right Stick to scroll up and down through the list of networks and select the name of your Wi-Fi network.
If prompted, use the on-screen keyboard to enter your Wi-Fi network's security key (wireless password) and select "OK" when finished.
If you receive an error message stating The security key you entered is incorrect, the security key you entered was not a valid security key.
The Wii U will now perform a connection test.
If the connect test fails, select OK to receive an error code and detailed information on why the connection test failed. You can use Nintendo's Error Code Lookup Tool to get information on resolving the error.
If the connection test is successful, select OK to continue.
When asked if you would like to make this your default connection, select Set if you wish this to be your default connection or No if you do not.
The Wii U will now ask you to perform an update, select "Update" to perform the system update, or select "Cancel" to skip this process.
Nintendo recommends performing the system update as this will ensure you have access to recently released applications and services.
If you have the wii disc error that might be because of error code 32004. It could be possibly error code 32004. If you have internet on the Wii and if so if you Wii format it again then you'll see this problem because the Wii update asks you to update it. In the update message it said at least,"Not updating this could cause future game disk problems when playing games." Im not sure how to really fix it but this just the problem. Solution has to do with you either hacking the wii or certain cases. Buy a new Wii or see if you can fix it using Nintendos support.
What might be happening is that your system is not updated. You may want to head to the options menu, go to Wii setting and look for the Wii System Update button and click that. That might be the solution.
Knicked this from a forum site: "I don't know if it's coincidence but I was having the same problem.
When the error message came up it said that I should check my internet
settings. So I went to wii options-->wii settings-->wii system
re-accepted the terms and conditions for the shopping channel and then
went to try the update again. It worked. If you are still
experiencing problems with the update you might want to try this."
The fault is with the update not the console so don't worry too much
We had the same issue this morning. you have to upgrade the Wii system menu. Look in the front page of the Super Mario Bros instruction bulletin and it tells you to do this. You have to be connected to the internet through your Wii though to do this, but our is now working. The download takes a few minutes but all is good. Hope this helps.
Just select the System Update option in Wii System Settings - just make sure your Wii is connected to the internet.
Error codes within that range usually refer to a communication problem with Nintendo's network.
:1: Make sure your Wii has an internet connection, you can test this using the shopping channel, internet channel or by sending a Wii-mail to a freand.
::2: Go in to the setting panel and run a firmware (system) update to ensure you have the latest firmware.
:::3: Try again at a less busy time of day, 15:00 on a week day is usually quiet.
If you still have problems after a firmware (system) update message back.
