    The servers are obviously slammed.
    My updated has been running for over a half an hour!
    It's ALMOST finished.

    Even Nintendo.com doesn't come up reliably. So if you are having problems, I suggest not trying to many weird things like unplugging everything in your house. Just wait and try again in a couple of hours. Once the initial burst of connections dies down, it should be fine.

    Be thankful there wasn't a worldwide launch, updates would take days :)

    Must be nice. I tried the walmart route and didn't work out for me. So I waited at target overnight and just got my Wii this morning! Im so thrilled I love it so much. I just hate having to wait an hour or two for the darned forced update. It would be nice if I could just test the internet connection and allow it to slowly update while the unit was off.

    My updates didn't take tooo long, but it was ridiculous downloading a VC game. It's neat though, the Mario style loading (you'll see what I mean if you haven't downloaded a VC title yet).

    I was almost done and then it said error, so I'm gonna wait for a long time, I've been playing games and stuff, I really like it so far, I'm satisfied with the graphics

    Bah, I updated my system around 11:00am and it went without a hitch; not that slow neither. Took around two minutes to download and install.
