My Wii U refuses to connect to the internet anymore.

Hello Gamefaqs

My Wii U will no longer connect to the internet. I was already using a manual connection with google's public DNS, and i've tried the your IP adress + 10 trick. Nothing seems to work!

I've reset my router and Wii U dozens of times, but still nothing works.

Anyone have any idea what's wrong?

Try unplugging your modem and router. Wait a couple minutes, then plug back in.

Thanks, but I've tried this.

Rather than editing settings manually with the Wii U, change your router settings instead and let the Wii U connect automatically.

I would recommend not to just give your Wii U a static IP like that because you could end up with an IP conflict.

Set up Automatic DHCP with MAC address reservation and assign your Wii U a static address that way.

If you're going to use custom DNS settings, that can also be changed through router settings.

Make sure you have your wireless security set up properly in your router settings. I recommend WPA2 with AES encryption, or at least WPA.

Try to use a wireless channel that isn't getting used by other access points, or is as far away from other channels being used.

DD-WRT is a great free firmware that can be flashed on many routers, and adds a lot of features that can improve your router.
