    Playing online in Portland, Oregon tonight at 8:00pm Pacific Time and started getting major lag in the game I was in, dropped out and ever since unable to connect to the game servers. Hearing similar reports on Gamespot and Gamefaqs boards. Anyone else unable to connect? Seems the storm hitting the east coast is the culprit.

    People on gamefaqs and gamespot are crazy, you can't believe everything(actually probably most of the stuff) they say. There's probably something wrong with your Internet, and odds are you're getting the "Unable to connect to servers. Please try again later." message, so I think the best thing for you to do is to try again later. Or if you can't wait that long, then try again tomorrow. :p

    That's a very sweeping statement lol. I happen to use faqs :(

    Also, it appears that the original poster may be correct. People from USA,Germany,Australia Japan etc etc are reporting that the online function is not available. My guess would be that some pivotal online servers for this game are based east coast USA and are suffering due to good ole Sandy. It's just a guess though :)

    I too am not able to go online :(

    Often, I will get the "Unable to connect to server. Please try again later" message a lot when I first try to connect. I will try 3,4,5, sometimes 6 or 7 times, before I finally get a "wii frz w/ a beep" and have to reboot my wii. Then it always connects on the next try after the reboot. But I think this is a unique issue related to my specific wii, and not to the servers. That said, see the following link to info posted on Activision's website 7 hrs and 43 mins. ago (credit to RSMiami on gfs for finding this)...

    Duck was right! :ee5k: First time for everything! LOL :lol:

    I have the same problem, I researched it ages ago and it happens when your connection is bad. In most cases it's the connection from your Wii to your home router. But if you ISP offers you a good connection speed the game still makes you host, eventhough your Wii's connection to the router is poor (I.e. everyone will lag)...

    Ha!

    Yeah, I've been unable to connect in the past as well and like most you I would just keep trying and eventually get through. Last night the lag became worse than I'd ever seen it prior to not being able to connect at all. What was also different is that every other time I tried to reconnect the screen would just sit on "Authenticating" and that too hadn't happened before - usually a freeze or the unable to connect message would eventually come up in the past.

    Anyone know where the servers are located? I assumed they would be spread out with some on the west coast as well as east. Seems strange that one localized storm can take the network down.

    What? I thought they were at YOUR house! :ee5k: Well...shows what I know! Perhaps with all the lag, the servers are located at Yoshi's house...

    UPDATE:
    Oct. 30, 2012 @ 10:07am EST... Still unable to get further than the "Testing Connection..." screen. Servers must still be down.

    UPDATE:
    Oct. 30, 2012 @ 10:49am EST... "Testing Connection..." continues to be as far as we can get... and so it continues...lol

    Thank you, Thank you! *takes a bow*

    UPDATE:
    Oct. 30, 2012 @ 11:19am EST...

    Apparently the dark, dingy basement that Activision keeps the the Wii Goldeneye servers in along with other old useless junk they no longer use is still flooded. "Testing Connection..." still........

    To Activision: Come on guys! Start up the generators! Get the hamsters running! Throw more coal into the fire! Let's get things up and running again! :thumbsup:

    Stuck on Testing Connection... here in the great northwest at 8:45am PDT. If I don't get my lunchtime fix I'm going to start having withdrawl symptoms. Found myself watching the movie Shooter last night in an attempt to compensate for the loss. Seriously, does anyone have a clue about how/where the Nintendo WFC servers are setup?

    Working now here too!
    Now I can go on living...
    :thumbsup:

    I believe that the location of those servers is a closely guarded state secret, since if it was commonly known, they may become a target for global terrorism!
