The Wii console was unable to connect to the Wii Shop Channel.
Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Wii console is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal. (For instance, if the Wii is placed in a crowded entertainment center, try moving the Wii somewhere with more room.)
Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.
There could be a temporary network issue with Nintendo's servers. Please wait a few hours and try to access the Internet Channel again.

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.
You may receive this error while attempting to link your MyNintendo
account to the Wii Store. This comes as a result of non-alphanumeric
characters in either your login name or password. To work around this
problem, simply remove these characters, apply the changes to your
MyNintendo account, and try again. (vie email, thanks Robert)
