Wii stuck on download screen

Not sure if anyone is here to help, but I seem to have a problem. Got my new Wii today and set it all up in a few minutes. As I set the Wifi connection up to my router, up came an onscreen prompt to download an update, which I confirmed, expecting it to take a few minutes. That was at about 12.15 pm today. It is now fast approaching 5pm and it is still stuck on the download (the bar hasn't moved for hours) I did ring the Nintendo helpdesk at about 1pm before going out, but they assured me the first download could take hours, maybe even overnight, especially if their server was particularly busy. Does this sound right? I am growing increasingly convinced that it has crashed and burned, so to speak.

    Thanks for the reply. In the end, I pressed reset then inserted Mario Strikers Charged to get the first update sorted. After that I went back online for the second update and it worked no probs.

    However, after setting everything up successfully, including getting the Internet Channel and some VC games downloaded, it then decided that it could no longer pick up my wifi router signal, so I am now trying to work out what has changed.

    I was online for ages, browsing the web and setting up favourites, then suddenly up came an error message and I haven't been able to get back online since.

    I've been browsing forums and this seems to be a common problem, unfortunately. The router is already set to channel 11, so I can't change that, and it is only situated about 4 metres from the Wii (in the next room) so the signal should not be weak.

    I'm sure I'll crack it, it's just proving to be a bit more troublesome than I expected.

Just purchased Wii Console with games, remotes

I remember seeing that on my Wii. It's an animation effect, kinda like the mouse trails on Windows. I do not have a Wii in front of me right now (at work), so I cannot say for sure if there is a setting to turn it off. I can add a comment to this later when I get home.

Good luck.

Can't get 2 remotes on at the same time

You have to start the game then press the home button on the remote. Go to WII and select the menu for the remotes. Click on reconnect. Press the 1-2 buttons on remote #1. When it lights up on the screen, press the 1-2 buttons on remote #2. Select close out remote settings, go back to the game. Select two players and each player can have his/her own remote.

Wii master key

Go to http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and enter your 8 digit confirmation number there. When you do so, make sure that whatever today's date is, your Wii is set to that date. (And select Today's date from one of the 3 possible choices.)

(To get the confirmation number, go into Parental control settings, click I forgot on enter pin screen, and Click I forgot on answer secret question screen. This is where you come to where you enter the master password, and the confirmation number you need, to get this master password.)

My internet

Hey Jay-man11,

Try doing a powercycle on the modem and router. Pull the power on the modem, and also the wireless router. Also make sure the Wii is off. Then, plug the power back into the modem, and then the router. Turn the Wii back on, and see what that does for you.
