Well,first time I heard that problem but I'm thinking the following will work by means of deductive reasoning. Try this..

1.) disable your network adapter (by remove the cable or unplugging your modem)
2,) turn on the wii
3.) it will attemp to connect to the net for netflix and fail
4.) clear everything and return to your main screen
5.) turn wii off
reconnect network
turn wii on.

what happens is that when the wii tries to establish a connection back to netflix it will fail cause it cant connect to the internet, allowing you to close everything..

    unplug the wii for 15 - 18 minutes, this drains all capicators and internal power source it should restart, anything less than 15minutes and your wii will still have internal power.

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Mar 31, 2011

    and make sure there is no disc in the drive as well

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Mar 31, 2011

    Did you leave it unplugged for 15minutes ????

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Mar 31, 2011

    Did you leave it off for 15 minutes ?

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Mar 31, 2011

    no problem waiting to hear from with the good news of problem solved.

Welcome to Fixya
Looks like the firmware/software of your Wii already hanged-up. Unplug the power adapter from your console. Hold down the power button for 10 secs without the power adapter. Put the adapter back then turn on the console. If you are getting the same problem, you need to contact Wii regarding this and have them re-flashed the firmware.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Cant connect my Wii to the internet for net flix viewing


Netflix has come a long way since 1997.
What began as a disc-based mail-order rental service has become one of the pioneers of digital distribution.
Netflix's digital distribution service offers thousands of movies and televisions shows that users can watch instantly from a variety of devices, such as the iPhone, PC and the Nintendo Wii.
Netflix is not available immediately on your Wii when you first turn it on; you must download the program from Nintendo's Wii Shop before you can begin using it.

Select the "Wii Shop" channel on the Wii's main menu and choose "Start."
Select "Start Shopping" and choose "Wii Channels."

Select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii."
Select "Free 0 Wii Points" to begin the download.
Choose the location where you will save Netflix.
You can select either the Wii System Memory or an SD card.

Select "OK" and select "Yes."
Your download will begin, and a Netflix channel will appear on the Wii's main menu.

Select the "Netflix" channel, located on the Wii's main menu, and choose "Start" to launch Netflix. The first-time setup screen will appear.
Select "Yes" to indicate you are a current Netflix subscriber.
If you are not, you cannot use the service until you sign up at the Netflix website.

Enter your Netflix email address and password. Select "Continue."
Select a television show or movie in any category to begin watching it instantly.

Setting up wii for netflix


Netflix Instant is available for streaming on your Wii gaming console by early spring 2010. If you have a Netflix subscription you can watch movies and episodes easily on your TV through your Wii console. This article will detail the important things you will need to make sure that you can watch Netflix from the Wii.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions Things You'll Need

  • Netflix subscription
  • Nintendo Wii gaming console
  • Broadband internet
    • 1 Check you Netflix subscription. The minimum subscription plan to watch Netflix instantly is the unlimited 1 DVD at a time plan or otherwise the $8.99 plan. This plan allows to watch movies instantly with unlimited monthly hours.
    • 2 Check internet bandwidth on your broadband connection. According to Netflix the minimum bandwidth requirement is 1.5Mbps. Netflix recommends for watching movies instantly a 3.0Mbps connection. Check with your internet service provider to confirm that these download speeds.
    • 3 A wired connection to your Wii console. An ethernet connection to your Wii console would be preferable. Unfortunately the Wii console does not have an ethernet port but a USB port. A USB LAN Adapter can be found at most computer supply merchants or online from Wii or Amazon.com. The ethernet connection is an ethernet wire from your home LAN router connected to your USB LAN adapter. The USB LAN adapter is then connected to the USB port on the Wii console. This connection will be how Netflix provides the movie streaming feed to the Wii.
    • 4 Sign up at the Netflix website for the Streaming Disc. Netflix will send a specially programmed disc to setup the Wii for watching the movies. When the disc arrives Netflix will provide instructions on how to install onto the Wii gaming console.
