Move your router closer. I have done a ton of testing over the last week and the Wii U is by far a lot weaker at picking up a WiiFi signal than the Wii.

My router was only two rooms and a hallway away but it was still dropping. Sometimes I would connect for several games in a row and sometimes it would drop me every couple minutes. So I tested the Wii and no issues, moved the router closer to the WiiU and did not drop 1 game all weekend.

A little disappointed that it is that weak, but there is a clear difference because I played GE and Netflix on the Wii for 2 years and never had an issues but had all sorts of issues with BLOPS and Netflix until I moved the router in the same room.

Not a big deal and problem solved, but still I expected more.

I wonder if it might actually be that the WiFi between the WiiU and the GamePad is interfering with the WiFi from your router to the WiiU. Have you tried changing the channels on your router at all (you would have to change the channel in the WiiU settings to match, as well - and your other devices, unless they auto switch)?

I thought it was crappy servers. I've been disconnected hundreds of times. My router is several rooms away. Thanks for the tips even if I don't know how to solve it. Hopefully it can be a firmware issue so it can be better.

That is a good point wit the GamePad. Yep changed them before moving the router and it didn't help. It wasn't the connection because every time I ran the connection test it passed, but the strength wasn't enough to allow me to stream or play on the server. The router was in the exact same place as before with the Wii but like I said, moved it on Friday night, probably played close to 8 to 10 hours this weekend and not one drop.

p.s. I still have fiberglass on my body from being up in the attic :(

I thought the same thing for the first two weeks and was annoyed, but as I read that others had flawless experiences and then Netflix started acting up, I suspected something else.

Let me know if it helps, I am curious to see.

That's strange. I look at my friends list on miiverse and add people several times a week usually.

...and people look at me funny when I said this console should have had a LAN adapter on board...

Did you really just instruct someone to search the Internet for the truth?
I never thought I would die like this, but I always hoped...

Do they? Do people really look at you funny? You can see the expression on their face over the internet? Maybe that's just the reflection in your computer monitor.
