    Hi,

    I brought a Wii which arrived last Thursday but I am having a few problems with Wiiconnect24.

    I have connected to the Internet wirelessly through my Orange livebox. I downloaded the update and have 2.2E on the menu version.

    I am able to access The Wii shop channel and have downloaded the Opera browser and surf the net fine with a good download speed.

    I can also send and recieve emails from and to the Wii.

    However, when I try and access the forecast or news channels, I just get the message "WiiConnect24 is currently turned off. Confirm your settings under Wii Options." No error message is given.

    Wiiconnect24 is turned on in the settings and standby mode is also on.

    Is there a problem with my Wii or is this a known issue?

    resender62, I have the exact same problem as you. Have you managed to find a solution at all?

    Did you happen to take the battery out or open the case recently?

    Hi ciper,

    Haven't taken the battery out or opened the case at all. Have seen some advice about taking battery out and formatting memory but not too keen to try it!

    Macarooney, not managed to get it going yet but if you find a way, let me know!

    Thanks.

    Still haven't found an easy solution either. Might try re-formatting/ removing battery at some point, but this'll probably be as a last resort.
    My console is chipped with the wiikey, don't know if this has any significance?

    This is from memory so I might miss a step.
    Change your country to another (from US to Canada for example) exit and turn the Wii off. Turn it back on and enter the votes channel and change the country back. Try to enter the news channel again.

    Wiiconnect24

    I also have this problem. Installed a wiikey with wiiconnect24 disabled. Checked that I have a D2B chipset on the dvd drive. Nevertheless tried all suggested tricks with formatting and battery / power supplly removal. No result.

    I can use the Opera Browser, no problem. Now use a static IP address and even changed MTU into 1500, as suggested by Nintendo. System update also worked well.

    I cannot access the 'enquetekanaal' as it gives error code 222001.

    And both the news and weatherchannel tell me I have wiiconnect24 disabled. When I actually disable it in the wii settings, I additionally receive an error code, which is probably normal behaviour.

    I'm using an Asus wl-500gp router, updated firmware (1975, june 2007), turned off all firewall features and still no result. Also tried the above suggestion changing country. Also no result.

    My internet provider is Lybrandt telecom in the Netherlands, usual speed between 10 and 20 mb/s.

    Any new suggestions very welcome

    Nope, friends of mine with a Wii (of which one has a wiikey installed) have normal access to the news and weather channel, so it's a specific problem. Hoping for an update of either the wiikey or the wii firmware.

    In order to access the weather and news channel you ALSO have to turn on wiiconnect24 STANDBY ON.

    Try setting the MTU to 1500. That solve my problem with weather/news channel.

    That's what Nintendo suggests. But it still didn't work. So probably there seem to be people, including Mii, who tried ALL the offered solutions till today on ALL forums and still own a console that doesn't connect to the Weather and News channel.

    See, this thread supersedes the level of solutions like 'to turn on wiiconnect24 STANDBY ON'. We probably have to wait for either a Wii firmware update or some non-Nintendo source firmware patch.

    I think whatever is going on is a recent issue. I say this because I've had my Wii since Dec 26, 2006 and never had any connection issues.

    As usual on the weekends, I disconnected the Wii and took it to the backyard for some backyard projection fun. Tried to check the everyone votes channel and got WiiConnect24 failure error 51330. Never had this before. I thought maybe I wasn't getting a good WiFi signal (even though the router was 20' away) and went to Opera. It works fine. Even the "connection test" works fine.

    However, the weather, vote and news channels don't work.

    I have an unmodded Wii, no settings were changed before it quit working. It no longer works even sitting in it's usual spot 2' from the WiFi router. Just the browser works.

    Oh, and the Wii is getting an IP config from my 2000 server just as it always has.

    New firmware solves wiiconnect24 problems

    I downloaded the new firmware and just tried the weather and news channel again. And now a new kind of error appeared, something like NEWS00002 and FORE00002.

    And now the trick: I sent myself a wii-mail to my home e-mail address and replied. That's all! And now the weather and news channel work fine.
