    Hi all,

    I've had my Wii for 24 hours so be easy :D! well I've setup everything fine via my wireless network but i keep getting Error 206401.


    Ive goggled this:

    Wii Error 206401

    You may receive this error while attempting to link your MyNintendo account to the Wii Store. This comes as a result of non-alphanumeric characters in either your login name or password. To work around this problem, simply remove these characters, apply the changes to your MyNintendo account, and try again. (vie email, thanks Robert)

    But i have no idea what else to do.

    are you trying to access the Shop Channel? cause this error means simply try again.

    dude i hate it when that happens. i just think that the connection is bad where you are try moving it somewhere else.
    how do i find my buddy/friend key/number? if you mean his wii number you go to your mail place then go to the wite letter thing in the conner,then go to your address book and yours is there.you give it to your friend he gives his to you.you type it in and there you go!

    from wii menu go to to the bottom right corner.

    then click the thing that says create message.

    on the right it says address book. on the first page will be your number.

    then there's 20 more pages for all your friends.
