So I tried setting this stupid thing up for an hour, all of google was just a copypasta of what OP had. Wasn't working for me.

Enabled DMZ for it and now I can "connect" but can't do anything online. Tried updating but all I managed to get was one megabytes worth of data. So frustrating, everything else I own works just fine, why just this?

When I go to my ipconfig, in Windows 8.1 and type in windows + R to get to the prompt, I am not given an ip address that I can input but an ipv 4 address...should I use that one?
I wont' change this signature until F-zero, Mario Kart, and or Zelda are released for Wii U

I used my guest network using an ACL and it gave me great speeds. I was going crazy because the update was taking way too long when I first got my Wii U

So I just moved into my school's grad housing. There's wifi here, and also an ethernet port, but I can't connect my Wii U to the internet either way. I'm assuming it's because the system doesn't play nice with DHCP, but there's really nothing I can do. I can get the internet connection test to 'connect' to the internet, but when i try to download the system update, the system freezes and the sound stops. Before the update hit, I could never connect to the internet at all, so it's not my system being defective.

I also tried a wired connection, but it's the same exact thing--except I can't even get the system update to start.

Is there anything I can do to get this thing online? Why does Nintendo hate the modern world?

I think Nintendo stopped Wii U's online ages ago about three in a half months ago.
But yeah I still say PS3 is one of the most fun systems out there. And updates for your Wii U needs a quite okay connection I suppose.

After following the steps on the first page several times, it still refuses to work for me. Which I find odd since I have no problems connecting to wifi with the 3DS. Is there a port somewhere on the WiiU to plug in that yellow cable thing you use to connect online with the 360 and PS3? Wouldn't a wired connection just automatically work without a fuss? Where can I plug that yellow cable thing in at?

Get a Lan Adapter for the Wii, it works on the Wii U
Oh, for a new 'proper' Shining Force..and a new Panel de Pon game and a new english release of Puyo Puyo....

Does the information in the original post still hold true after 2 years? I've been having connection issues ever since yesterday and can't play Smash Bros online.
Without truth, there is nothing.
