    Its a common problem, busy servers.

    It took pretty long. It did 2 updates for me. Must have been like 20 minutes or something for both. I didn't pay attention, though. I ended up watching TV while it updated.

    it took me about 5 min for each update. i guess it just depends on your wireless signal, download speed, and how buisy the servers are

    My first update took about 7 minutes. . . but I think that was because it was launch early morning day of launch and everybody was updating their brand-spakin-new Wii's.

    The second update for parental controls took like 2 minutes.

    That's not good...

    I would check your router settings to make sure it's not blocking traffic from the Nintendo Servers.

    The servers are probably weighed down. Try again later. With a pretty good but not incredible wireless setup, I was able to update in under 5 minutes.

    This happened to me once and I shut it off... didn't fox with mine, it was during the parental controls update, and it just went fine the second time.

    my first update ran all night and still didnt make it to 50%. I got up this morning and had no choice but to pull the AC plug (was there something else I could have done?) anyway, it seems to be running better this morning, but still way slow.

    yeah me too

    My updates used to work. but now they hang at 20 - 50 percent and it seems my internet connection total dies then too. the only fix I can find for the internet is to clear the setting and set up the wireless settings again.
