Well, I have not been able to play online since I got the game, which really sucked, but today I finally played with anyone matches, for about an hour and it was great. But there is a catch, first off I had to make sure all file sharing programs were off, then I adjusted my port forwarding for my Wii as suggested by nintendo. I really don't know if these things actually helped or if I just finally got lucky. But I will try again later today and will see what happens. Anyway just thought I would share that. Also if you go to nintendos website under support and enter your error code it gives you instruction on which ports to forward, which is easy because they say just forward them all, which I don't really understand, but hey thats what I did.
