    Here is the deal with those wii's whose forecast channel works but shop and internet channels do not. The problem is with internet providers not having nintendos servers addresses in all their databases. To fix the mysterious problem follow these clicks: on the start up channels menu click wii options, then settings, then internet, then connection settings, then click on whatever your current connection is ( ie connection 1 , connection 2, or connection 3, ) Then click on change settings, click to the right 3 pages so the heading reads "Auto obtain DNS" Click on "NO" and click advanced settings, then for the primary dns input this sequence 206.013.030.012 for the secondary inpur 206.013.029.012 click confirm and then save and initiate the system test. the shop and internet channels that did not load up should now work. Have fun.

    I am in the U.S. so it could be only for U.S. residents.

    Those DNS listed, are the ones for his local ISP. Contact your local ISP, or go into Windows on your computer and click on Start/Run. Type in "cmd" there.

    in the black DOS windows, type in "ipconfig /all" (including a space between g and /) This should list your DNS.

    I tried this...but still not working! Sorry i thought 206.013.030.012 was a Nintendo server! Because Woe911 said that some internet providers not have nintendos servers addresses in all their databases...
    Thanks for help, i'm hope i can solve this problem!

    Nintendo America told me they should work anywhere in the U.S. For those outside the united states. Say Europe, I would either call Nintendo Europe and ask for the DNS numbers or you could try e-mailing them.

    I have had the same problems connecting to the shop in the UK and I have changed my router dns settings to use the opendns servers (see their website www.opendns.com) and now it seems to work ok for me:
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
    I don't know if that will help for you.

    Hi, Thanks for the reply woe911 and Motty!
    For woe911: I already called Nintendo Europe Service and emailed them but...no answers yet.
    For Motty: Thanks for the suggestion, i visited www.opendns.com but i have a question:
    I must change:
    -my internet connection DNS settings
    -my access point DNS settings
    -my Wii DNS settings (now them are set to "automatic")
    -or all the three settings above together?

    Thanks for the help, i'll try soon as i can, i hope this can solve my problem!!!

    To be honest, I'm not sure how the Wii connects through the router. I think if you set the Wii to Auto and change the router dns, that will work (that is what I have done).
    But I'm not sure if you set the Wii to a particular dns, whether that will override the router setting. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable here will be able to help.

    Sorry about that. Those dns settings work for me. May the problem here is not with dns settings as Nintendo have suggested? Maybe a problem with their shop servers???

    Hunter123, do you get an error code when trying to connect to the shop? If you do, go to http://www.wiierror.com for more info. There is lots of good information under error 52030 which a lot of people seem to be getting when trying to connect to the shop. Various things like changing MTU or the wireless mode have helped some people.

    It seems the shop isn't working for me either now! ARH!!! :incazzato: So I'm fairly sure its not dns settings. I will try changing my router settings and will let you know if I can get my wii to connect.

    As far as I know the information I submitted above ONLY works for the situation stated above, which is, in short, for those who get the error code 209756 when attmepting to access the wii shop, but who also already had access to the internet and wii shop previously. The dns codes also only work for those in the U.S.A. I should have been more specific before.

    Hi woe911, thanks for the information.
    When i try to connect WiiShop it gives me no error: the screen is loading forever and ever...so i must power off my Wii. Only two times i received error 209600 and 209576. But in most cases it hangs while loading...my pc connection the first two minutes seems to go...then it stops working but the loading ring continues to move in the Wii Shop loading screen. So i must turn off the Wii and try with a different setting...

    I'm using Ralintek SoftAp...Could be that the problem?
    But it's strange, because i can connect to the weather channel, do the system updates, send and receive Mii...what's the matter?:nonod:

    Mine is now not working anymore. It will connect to view a few games for sale then it just hangs and errors. Cant download anything. hit or miss.
    weather and internet work fine for the most part. Really seems like Nintendo dosent have the bandwidth and size to handle everyone. Just really getting bogged down.
