    This happened to me once...it just froze during the update...I just turned the wii off and restarted it, but if you don't feel safe doing that call nintendo...they should be able to tell you what to do.

    The on screen instructions say to cancel it, just turn it off. It shouldn't hurt anything.

    I turned mine off and then on again. No problem. I also changed my routers channel from the usual 11 to 1. Change your routers channel to 1 and it should work OK

    You are wrong. The message is just a precaution. It is only unsafe to turn it off in the last few minutes of the download, as this is where it is actually being installed. Before this it is just downloading the update and will not have any damage to it from turning it off.

    So if your doing an update, and during the last few minutes your power goes out, your Wii will become useless? (Other than as decoration or a paper weight)

    There is a possibility yes.

    It replaces the current operating system with the new updated one. If this process is interrupted then it may only be half done and the operating system will be useless.

    For instance, if you were copying a file onto your computer and pulled out the plug before it was finished, the file would probably be corrupt or a fragment.
