Limited connection on wireless signal

Well i generally dont use my wireless a whole lot but now that i got a laptop, a nintendo wii, and an itouch i want to use it more now.

constantly i get on for like a few pages and as soon as i click to go somewhere ive lost the connection, i see the network connection in the dialogue box and it says 100 percent but my periphals will not connect. I dont have wep on, i have the latest firmware, ive rebooted,renewed,released and nothing. sometimes i connect and sometimes i dont. my itouch always says it cant find the server and once every so many minutes i connect but i take it anywhere else i have no problem, same with the laptop...the wireless in my house is just not working like it should. The one button easy setup is not making this easy at all.

1. Try to reset your router to a factory defaults.
2. Try to change the wireless channel
3. If you have a 2.4 GHz phone in your house, it might interfere with your wireless network since it's using the same frequency.

Other suggestions:
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

  • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console.
  • What to Do:
    • Check the location and distance of your wireless router.
      The further a device is from your wireless router, the weaker it's signal strength will be. If your wireless signal has to pass through any walls or floors, this will also weaken the wireless signal strength. Move the router to a central location within your home and as close to your system as possible.
      Additionally, if your router is on the floor, moving it to a higher location can improve the signal strength.

    • Change the wireless channel your router is broadcasting on.
      Wireless routers can broadcast on a variety of channels. Sometimes a specific wireless channel may experience interference from other devices and routers nearby. How to

    • Move any metal objects or electronic devices away from your Nintendo system and wireless router.
      Metal objects and electronic devices may interfere with wireless signals. If you have any of these, such as filing cabinets, speakers, power strips, glass, or cordless phones, next to your system or wireless router, move them away.

How do i get wii shop chanel


Hello

To get to wii shop channel first you need to configure your system
Configure your Nintendo Wii for a wireless Internet connection. The only way to access the Wii Shop is by having an Internet connection and a wireless router. The Nintendo Wii has a built-in wireless router that can pick up signals from wireless Internet connections. Make sure that your wireless Internet router is close enough so that the Nintendo Wii can pick up a signal.

Loading Wii Shop;
Use your Wii remote to select the Wii Shop from the main Wii channel menu. The Wii Shop is located in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If your Internet access is not set up yet, then you will be prompted and automatically brought to the Internet Configuration menu. Once your Internet is set up, you will either be brought back to the Wii Shop or the main channel menu.

Navigating the Main Menu
Look at the main Wii Shop menu. Here you will be given two main options with a couple of general options at the bottom of the screen. The first option is to look for games for the virtual console. The Virutal Console contains games from past systems like Turbo Grafx 16, NEOGEO, NES, Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64. Once you have loaded the virtual console menu, you can search games by most popular title, new titles, system, genre or price. When you have found a game that you are interested in, press the "A" button to see a more detailed description with a couple of screen shots, and find out how many Wii Points the game costs.

Wii Points
Purchase Wii Points directly through the Wii Shop by using a credit or debit card. You will use the Wii remote to point and select all of the card holder information. The minimum amount of Wii Points you can buy is 1,000 for $10, so if you want a game for 700 Wii Points, then you will have 300 points left over for future purposes. Instead of using a credit card through the Wii store, you can purchase a Wii Points card at a local retailer. These cards come in different point values, and 100 points represents a dollar.

Downloading the Software
Finalize your game purchase by confirming how many Wii Points will be deducted from your account. Once you have done this, the game download will begin. While it only takes a few minutes to download, you can see the progress by watching a Mario character jump and hit a brick. Once he has reached the third brick, your download is complete. From there, you can continue to shop in the Wii Shop or play the game.

Wii Ware
Check out the other option that is labeled as "Wii Ware." Wii Ware is a lot like the Virtual Console, but everything created here is new and original for the Wii. You can get updated channels like the new Photo Channel or get exclusive Wii Shop games like "Midnight Pool" and "Family Table Tennis." The games here actually are interactive Wii games, and you can get the full game for a lot cheaper than a new Wii game from a store.

Why do I get an error code when trying to download a game to my Wii Memory?


Any time I have tried to download from Nintendo Shopping channel, I have gotten an error for one of a few reasons. 1. No Internet Connection. 2. Slow Connection, 3. Connection Drop. or 4. operating system error.

If you provide the error code or look it up on Nintendos website, it usually gives your some hints to fix your issue.

However, here are the most common:
1. This is usually because the WII console is not connecting to the router or getting an IP address. If could also mean your router has lost its connection to the internet (easily checked with any other computer).

2. This is usually due to congestion (per Nintendo) in your area. They say to try changing your channel for the router. I think Nintendo recommends 6 or 11 but it depends on how many people in near you use wireless.

3. This can be a number of things. This time of year, you typically have problems accessing/downloading things from Nintendo just because a lot of people are trying. However, I have wireless N and the WII is wireless G; I have found that sometimes causes drops. Wireless N is constantly trying to get the best signal and sometimes changes channels (at least mine does), this can cause G to drop sometimes. I went to a wired solution, it helps in online play.

4. I have not seen this one of late. But when WII first came out, an update disabled WII connect and Nintendo had to replace the unit.

What do you mean by "normal" internet? If you download the full version of Opera's browser in the Virtual Console's "Wii Ware" section you can do lots of things that you couldnt in the demo version of the browser.
