I dont know what any of the other people are talking about, but i just tried logging onto multiplayer with goldeneye and the screen that popped up said something to the effect of "cannot connect because wii mode cannot save wifi data"

I looked for a place to setup wifi in wii mode and no go, man.

Theres always the possibility that i'm stupid and clueless, but my wiiu connects to the net, miiverse and netflix without issue. I was honestly surprised when it didnt work.


This is a bit unsettling! Is there anyone that has played a Wii game online with WiiU that can explain how you have to set it up?

I've played GE just fine in Wii mode. All of the setup is done with the Wii U settings. I don't necessarily recommend it because Wii mode doesn't support Dolby Pro Logic.

Well, the main reason I want to know is because I have a friend who is obsessed with Animal Crossing and would be really happy if I played with her online more. I kinda move around between multiple houses a lot (don't ask) and it's a pain to travel all my systems every week.
