    Connections

    Right, all the time my connection tests (for wireless connections) fail. I always get error codes that all relate back to the connection not being strong enough, whatever. Anyone know why? I've tried moving it to another room, same result.

    When I first had my wireless setup, WiiConnect 24 and updated during my sleep, and my mom came in and crashed my Wii because a blue light is on, question is, is she the one I have to kill?

    What's Nintendo's support number as my Wii's box is in some high up closet teetering precariously.
    With much love, 261311.

    how far away is your wireless connection?

    i'm going to go with a router setting.. like a MAC address filter or something (i could be wrong)

    dont blame your mom.
    wiiconnect24 just informs you of a message or an update. when it's blue, it isnt actually updating.

    sounds like your router is blocking the connection. Or are you on a modem?

    I'm on a modem, and where the routers that I'm stealing connections from are within a 100 feet of concrete, and I can't actually access them to switch channels, get mac addresses, etc.

    Keep in mind, that all before this, I had a connection (pretty damn fast too).

    Have you or a family member changed anything recently?

    It could be that your wii is searching for a network that no longer exists.

    Try restarting your connection setup from scratch from your wii

    EDIT: Just read your message. It sounds like your Wii's MAC address has been blocked from the router.

    There's not much you can do besides break into their house and manually delete the record from the ACL.

    The connections are unlocked, I feel you took my wording a bit more seriously.
    Nothing has changed, and everytime I get an error code I delete all settings.

    Will re-formatting the Wii do any good? If so (or a high chance) to preserve all game saves and VC's all I have to do is SD card it correct?

    Nope. It is not wep protected but it sounds like they have blocked the physical address of your Wii (MAC adress). I'm not really sure what you can do about it.

    Maybe pay for your own broadband?

    Problem is, I've tried 3 different connections, all of which worked with strong receive not long ago. I doubt all of them (plus more) blocked me all on the same day.

    Unfortunately, my aunt refuses to get something that's cheaper and better, it seems she's rich.

    In any matter, &^%#$& &*#^^ #*64 *#^$ ^#(&$^ #$^ *&#^$ *#^$( &#^ $*#^ # *sobs* ^%$#!#@$^!@#)( * % %%!!!!

    Still don't feel that much better.
