    Anybody notice the internet channel acting funny? When I first connected my Wii to the internet and began browsing/watching videos it seemed fast and very nice. It seems like it's getting worse. It sometimes has problems scrolling and streaming videos. It's strange, I can't explain in any other way.

    I've tried updating the console, but sure enough...it has all the current updates.

    No problems are occurring to me. Perhaps it's all in your mind.

    It's not an issue with speed. It's the internet having trouble opening up some webpages and streaming. I figure that the Wii's internet is no where near perfect. But I though everyone else has no problem with these things.

    I too have a Linksys router, it's not an issue with that.

    I think I get what you are saying now, and I have always had that issue. If you click on a link in the browser and the status bar doesn't do anything, just click it again once or twice and it should go.

    I am sure they will have an update sometime soon.

    The browser on the wii is not based in anyway towards an external service besides your actual web service. I'm sure if you had a PC you would have the same speed issues (If it was the wii browser). I've had no issues with streaming movies if I'm not downloading on my PC.

    Deeamn, i want the internet channel, sadly i can't it. My mom plays nintendo wii, and won't let me get the internet channel , until she beats mario party 8

    But from the videos i've seen bout the internet channel, IT LOOKS GOOD!

    Yeah, I haven't had any problems with the Internet Channel either. I think it may just be a small number of people.

    Think about this,
    It may work ok again if
    1.You delete the cookies via the settings menu.
    2.You delete the stored information via the wii system settings menu (note: this will delete your favourites), I have tried this and it's speedy again.

    Yeah Ive done that too, and it does help! Just try not to save so many favorites. Also if you just redownload the internet channel it could help! I know it did with the trial version.

    Yeah, What I tend to do if I erase the information, I jot down the sites I favourited so I can re-add them. (I am such a geek)
