    Internal Server Error? Can't connect to NetFlix or Wii Shop Channel

    Nintendo Wii - purchased from a friend approximately 1 month ago, been working fine ever since.

    - not able to connect to Netflix. Tried Netflix troubleshooting (reset unit, checked internet connection, reset netflix channel, etc). Was working fine yesterday.

    - tried removing netflix channel and re-installing, were not able to access wii shop channel (internal server error screen comes up, unable to leave without a hard reset on the system)

    - internet connection still works fine on youtube and internet channels. Internet connection works fine on other devices (laptop, iphone 4s) and netflix works fine on laptop.
    - changed channel on router

    - removed internet connection channel (wireless) and re-established

    - formatted the system memory of the wii, tried wii shop channel again with same internal server error problem

    Only different thing that's happened lately is a couple new games purchased for the kids for Christmas (Angry Birds Star Wars and Disney Princess) that required updates. Seemed that the Netflix connection problem happened after that... not positive when the wii shop channel stopped working, been a while since we'd connected to it.

    Any ideas?

    With the holiday season coming around, Nintendo's servers have been experiencing some huge issues from the sheer volume of traffic. From what I've heard it's half the large amount of firmware updates (both for Wii U and 3DS) being downloaded, and half from a new feature in Pokemon X and Y that was also being downloaded en masse, despite only being available in Japan at the time. The latter has been taken off the market temporarily to help mitigate the overload of traffic, so it's only a matter of time before the servers will be working properly again.

    In short, this issue will likely blow over in a few days. Hopefully. You can check here every once in awhile to see if things are any better.
