    Try changing your router channel

    I have noticed this as well...changing your router/connection settings has nothing to do with it,it's a problem within the Wii itself.

    Changing the channel can help.

    But the point is that either way, when the wii is turned on again it should be able to connect to all the services. But if you're a red-light person it will refuse to connect to the news and weather at all, even though all the other services (internet, vote channel) will.

    Hope that's a bit clearer.
    Of course this has nothing to do with router settings, changing channel etc...That's just how it is. It also happens to me. The optional settings for me would be for wiiconnect24 to be turned off when the console is off (i.e red light) and on when the console is on. I imagined this could be done by turning on wiiconnect but leaving standby off. Alas. This cannot be done. How dumb was Nintendo about this? come on guys! common sense!

    Nintendo is not dumb.

    I don't see the problem you have iceblade because you don't make it clear enough.

    seems pretty clear to me. like me when the wii is off (stadby, little red light) he dont want it connecting to wifi but when the wii's on he does (full use of all channels).

    I really would like this feature sorted as the wii's wifi signal sometimes interfears with an av sender i use.

    Cant see why the wether and news channel cant update when the wii is first switched on?

    Dude, Retman explained it perfectly in the post I quoted. When Wiiconnect24 is on but standby is off you can't access weather channel, news channel, everybody votes channel but you CAN access internet channel. Do you want me to spell it out for you? jeez
    And are you offended when I said Nintendo is dumb? Do you work at Nintendo? If you do then can you fix this, if not what exactly is your problem? A simple, basic function that doesn't work = dumb manufacturer fault
