Wii u error code 204965


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.

I am trying to download the netflix app on the nintendo wii from the wii shop channel online and I keep getting the error code:204965


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.

I can't get wii points


There are two ways to purchase Wii Points:
Purchase Wii Points through the Wii Shop Channel:
Using a Visa, or MasterCard, you can purchase Wii Points through your Wii console using the Wii Shop Channel's secure servers. To purchase Wii Points through the Wii Shop Channel:
  1. Access the Wii Shop Channel through the Wii console's Channel menu.
  2. If this is your first time using the Wii Shop Channel, read the User Agreement and click "I agree" if you understand and agree to the terms. Click "Okay" after reading the Wii Shop description.
  3. Once on the "Welcome to Wii Shop Channel" screen, select "Start Shopping."
  4. Click the "Add Wii Points" button.
  5. Select "Buy Wii Points with a Credit Card."
  6. Select the amount of Wii Points you would like to purchase. (Please note there is a maximum number of points that can be available on each Wii console.)
  7. Select the credit card type you would like to use to buy Wii Points. The Wii Shop accepts Visa, or MasterCard.
  8. Enter the credit card number, expiration date, and three digit security code. Select "OK" when finished.
  9. Enter your city, state, zip, and county. Click "okay" to continue. Please do not input any punctuation, such as periods, commas, and apostrophes into the street, city, or county fields. For instance, "St. Clair Ave" would be "St Clair Ave" when entered.
  10. Review the purchase details on the confirmation screen, and select "Yes" when finished.
  11. Once the purchase is processed, a confirmation screen will appear indicating that Wii Points were added to your Wii Shop account.

Accessing the Wii Shop channel to install Netflix. Error code: 051030 (unable to connect to server) any suggestions :)?


051030 is a 'too busy' error, so it's probably an issue with Nintendo's servers rather than your wii.







hope it helps dont forget to rate

Why Won't My Wii shop channel load?


This could be multiple things. Your internet connection might be blocking the connection to the Nintendo servers. Your internet connection might not be fast enough to load the wii shop channel. Your wii might have connection issues with the router. Your wii's connection peripheral might be faulty.
You might want to call your ISP to see if they might support you for free.
