ah thanks crazy. I misread that message to take it that it wasn't supported at all, I was wondering why it was even in there. im operating off 3 hours of sleep today my bad lol.

miri, as I said before your problem is that it sounds like its not pulling down dns settings when your security is enabled. use the method I posted earlier in this thread to get your isp's dns servers ip addresses (or as some have called them "numbers" lol). input those manually and you should be golden.

I know because I went through the exact same thing earlier.

if your having difficulty finding the addresses or understanding what im saying just let me know and ill try to clarify and answer any questions you might have.

so..... Nintendo, king of making everything accessible..... made setting up the Wii U to connect to the internet needlessly complicated?

I'm enjoying this launch day, I am

tidas adding another 0 would be fine. the idea is that each device doesn't share the same ip address or "number".

so if you want to use 192.168.1.100 that should be ok since your computer was using 192.168.1.10.

id like to point out that this wasn't intentional. this is most definitely a bug. they should patch it in a future update.

For those who did Wii transfer, please help...

Ok, so got the Wii U on, updated, SD card ready to go. I go into the Wii U Wii menu, and click Wii System Transfer. It gives me the little 5 pages about the transfer info (blah blah), then says to click here now to connect to the Wii Shop Channel to Download the Wii U transfer tool.

I click it, then it simply says "You cannot connect to the Wii Shop Channel. Please consult manual."

The Wii U is online but seems like I cant connect to shop to get the tool. Wth?

Anyone see this issue. I have tried multiple times since around 4 EST.

I created an account just to post this.

I have a Motorola SBG900 and I couldn't get it to work with the manual steps you guys listed, until I did the following:

1. Under the Gateway section of the SBG900 page, I had to also configure Port Forwarding, Port Triggers, and I setup a stactic dhcp lease. (not sure if all of these changes are necessary, but I took a shotgun approach).

2. Inserted the DNS servers from the SBG900 Gateway, Status page. Instead of the Google DNS servers you listed, for the Connection Settings DNS information.

I can finally connect, and I am downloading the update slowly. The bar doesn't make any progress for awhile.

Hope this helps someone else.
