For the past few weeks we cannot get our Wii to do a system update. It seems to connect to the Internet fine and proceeds to download but then stalls a few minutes into the process.
The Wii uses a WIFI connection but also has the capability of using a wired one. So I dragged out my LAN USB adapter and some extra Cat 5 cable to see if it was something to do with the wireless connection. Well, apparently I need a Wii LAN adapter to make this work. Guess it’s back to the drawing board.
Of course, my husband’s idea is to take it to a friend’s house and use their WIFI to see if it will update that way. Since we have satellite Internet we are wondering if that is the problem. I guess I need to do some further investigating. It’s very frustrating since I received Wii points for Christmas but can’t use them until the Wii does a system update.
