Well, I got my wii, everything was working. I had to reformat my wii's memory because of an error with my wii forecast not updating right. After formatting, and setting up all of the internet again (agreeing to the disclaimer) and setting up wiiconnect.
It is on in the menu, ive tried turning it off and on, taking out the cmos battery, turning standby off and on. But everytime I go to the forecast, news or store, it tells me I have to enable wiiconnect.
