For the past day or so I've been trying to update my niece's Wii because I got her Kirby's Epic Yarn for Christmas. And yes, it's not even Christmas but hey, I really want to play it, too. The problem is is that the Wii requires an update before we can even play it. I've tried:
- Unplugging the router
- Setting the wireless router to channels 1, then 11, then 1 again (from default channel 6)
- Tried updating through the Wii settings, through the game disc (which comes up with a prompt that says it'll use the Internet, blah, blah), and even through the Wii Shop Channel (which comes up with the same prompt essentially making it impossible for my niece to buy anything else with her Wii points)
- Turning off and unplugging the Wii after completing each of the above
The last time I tried to see if it'll complete over time it was set on channel 11, it's within 10 feet of the wireless router it's trying to download stuff from, no disc inside, and 12 hours (left on overnight) of waiting time.
Any suggestions? I'd rather not format the Wii's memory since I don't have an SD card handy and I don't trust how the Wii handles that kind of stuff since there are a few downloadable games on it.
