I don;t know what you are downloading. If you can get to the Wii Store then you already have an Internet connection. Otherwise, just go to the system menu, to Internet and use the connection wizard to help you set up. Make sure you have the keys and authentication type correct.

Connect wii to netflix account


Hi Delores, yor image shows an iPhone; however, you must connect to your Netflix account with you Wii console.

Do you have wireless internet connection for your Wii? Do you have an established Netflix account? If so, then to download Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii you must go to the Wii Shop Channel.

  1. Select the Wii Shop Channel on the Wii Menu and select "Start."

  2. If you haven't already been to the Wii Shop Channel, you will need to read and agree to the User Agreement.
  3. A screen will appear asking you if you want to link a Club Nintendo account to your Wii Shop account.
    • If you have a Club Nintendo Membership, enter your User Name and Password, then select "Link."
    • If you do not have a Club Nintendo Membership, leave the fields blank and select "Skip."
  4. Select "Start Shopping" to continue to the Wii Shop Channel main menu.
  5. Select "Wii Channels" from the Wii Shop Channel main menu, then select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii." Select "Free 0 Wii Points."
  6. Select either the "Wii System Memory" or an "SD Card" as the download location. I'd suggest System Memory for Netflix.
  7. Select "OK," then "Yes" to download the channel.
  8. A screen will appear with Mario running across the screen and three blocks. Mario will hit the blocks as the download progresses.
  9. Once Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii has finished downloading, it will appear on the Wii menu.

Open Netflix, login to your existing account, and there you are!

    • If your wireless access point does not show up when you choose, Search for An Access Point, your router may have Broadcasting set to "No" or "Disable." Some routers also refer to this security as "Stealth" mode. You can either change your broadcast setting to "Yes" or "Enable," or you can manually enter the SSID in the manual setup screen of your Wii console.
  • 13Select Save and OK.
  • 14Select OK on the next screen and the Wii will preform an automatic connection test.

    Important Notes about the Internet Channel and Opera Browser
  • The information on this page describes the features found in the latest version of the Internet Channel (ver. 9.30). You can identify the version number of your Internet Channel by selecting the Opera/Home icon in the tool bar of the browser, then clicking on the "Opera Powered" icon at the top of the screen.

  • USB keyboard support is only available for version 9.30. Visit the Wii Channels section of the Wii Shop Channel to obtain the latest version.

  • The Internet Channel supports http and https. It is not compatible with other types of protocols, such as ftp, mailto, etc.

  • The Internet Channel is compatible with Flash, up to version 8. It is compatible with all earlier versions, but versions higher than 8 will not be compatible. There is currently no way to download and install higher versions of the Flash Player to the Wii console.

  • You can allow access to the Internet Channel through the Parental Controls of the Wii. If the controls are enabled, access to the Internet Channel will require the PIN to be entereed.

  • When entering website address, you do not need to type in "http://"; however, websites that begin with "https://" will need to be entered in full.

  • The Classic Controller, Nintendo GameCube Controller, and Nunchuk are not used with the Internet Channel. In addition, only one Wii Remote will work with the Internet Channel at a time. USB keyboard support is available for versions 9.30 and higher. Visit the Wii Channels section of the Wii Shop Channel to obtain the latest version.

  • Many types of video playback, such as QuickTime (.avi) and Windows Media Video (.wmv) are not compatible with the Opera Browser and will not play.

  • The Internet Channel costs 0 Wii Points to download, and is available in the Wii Shop Channel, in the Wii Channels section.

  • The Wii console supports cookies. At this time, there is no way to delete cookies without deleting the Internet Channel's saved data from the system memory

    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.

    My wife was messing with Wii inernet trying to get it set up and ended up erasing the Wii internet channel, do we still need it and if so how do we get it back


    You will have to download the Internet Channel again. You can find it in the Shop Channel. You'll have to have a working Internet connection and have your Wii configured to access it to download the software again though.
