    I'm dutch, have the wii for over a week now and
    just swapped my wii for another one at the nintendo-
    office in holland, because mine was broken (didnt read any disc anymore).

    now i have a new one, and it comes to my attention that
    the wii freezes a LOT!
    Sometimes in a game (sports or so), but almost ALL the time
    when i go to the mii plaza !!!

    any thoughts or just wait for the new update (i have the newest....)????

    thx!

    Mine one has never hung on me apart from using the new Opera beta(I managed to create a page with a 1mb XML download on my intranet and it hangs)

    I've had the Wii freeze when using the Opera browser 3 times now. Once while I was checking my gmail, a second time when I was about to play a flash game, and the most recent time just while opening the browser. All times the reset button hasn't worked, and I've had to hold down the power button instead. But eh, it's only a minor inconvenience.

    You got a bad Wii is the problem, someone on here has had to send in 3 defected Wii's until he got the perfect one. :sick: Just go back to the store and get a new one, you Wii is DEFINITELY defective.

    Yea, return it for another. Mine has never frozen, maybe one or two slow load times, but nothing more. Sorry to hear about your problem.

    and yes of course your Wii will freeze up on the internet and lock up to where you can't even reset it...there is no optioon but to turn power off and let sit for a minute and power back up...

    reason: Wii's current browser functionality doesn't support much of anything at the moment but simple browsing...

    A Wii should only freeze every so often. Not every time you play, not every day, not even once a week. It should be a rare occurence.

    When I say they should freeze I'm not saying it's intentional or anything just saying it's to be expected and sense it's rare you can live with it. Like a computer.
