Question about Nintendo Wii Console
If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:
If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.
If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting
Check for interference that may be successful connection.

Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed.
Verify that the proper Connection File (1, 2, or 3) is selected in the Wii System Settings.
If you have multiple connection files setup, and you have recently received a system update, it is possible that the update has caused the Wii console to select a different Connection File. Click here for step-by-step instructions on viewing your connection settings.
Make sure that your network's name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings.
Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router's owner's manual for assistance).
Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Internet Settings of your Wii console that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.

Do the internet connection test and see if it has a problem, if it does, then reset your wii internet again and it should work fine. This can occur rarely. Hope that helps.
