I had to change my router to channel 1 for it to work 100% correctly.
It was weird, my Wii could (and did) update itself with the router on the wrong channel, but I couldn't get online with it afterwards, and I got an error code. It scared me a first, but a few minutes of research and troubleshooting solved the problem.
If you can't connect to the service, you can't get Virtual Console games. So this isnt even a factor.
Unless people were able to download VC games before the update was released
A real shame. At least they're dealing with it quickly.
I had to do the same thing to my router. I knew everything I entered was correct and didn't know why it wasn't working until I read that information. As soon as I changed the channel it started working.
Is it possible to connect with a lan line, rather than wirelessly? I don't have a wireless router, but still want to connect. I seem to remember hearing that you could if you wanted to, but I can't find anything concrete on it.
You need to use a yet-to-be released adapter.
OR, you could use the DS dongle.
I had a similar problem where my Wii would locate my access point but gave me an error message when I tried to connect. After going over the nintendo message boards I found a thread where they suggested switching your router settings from g to mixed and that worked for me. But it still was a pain in the ass that I wasn't expecting out of the box...
