I absolutely cannot get connected. I am getting the same error code whether I'm trying to go out or open my gates. It comes up IMMEDIATELY as the "Please wait...making preparations blah blah blah" message disappears. The error code is 60000.
Any ideas? --- "The internet: Slowly destroying the English language." - spitfire10189
Our experience shows that error messages within this range are typically caused by an unstable network connection. The issue could be with your connection environment, your friend's connection environment, or a temporary issue with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Our servers may be trying to handle an unusually high amount of traffic (especially if you are trying to play online with a recently-released or popular game, or if there is a new Wii system update). Please retry your connection later
If you have waited a few hours and are still experiencing issues, try the following:
How are you connecting online? The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is only compatible with Cable, DSL, and Fiber-optic internet connections. If you are connecting via Satellite, EV-DO (cellular), Dial-up, or other types of connections, then you should try to use an alternate type of connection. Contact your Internet Service Provider if you are not sure what type of internet connection you have.
The error may be caused by a basic setting on the router that needs to be adjusted (such as the channel). Please review our general router troubleshooting.
Some games may need certain settings on your router enabled or disabled to allow a successful connection with other players. This can include UDP and firewall settings that will vary from router to router. You can view our router pages by clicking here. If your router is listed, check to see if there are any special notes that may help. If there is no information for your particular router or you need further assistance, check out Nintendo's Tech Support Forums. Other users may have already found the solution you're looking for. If you have tried all of the steps above with no success and you have been encountering the error for a period of at least a few hours, please call 1-800-255-3700. Our representatives are available between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time, seven days a week.

On an unrelated note: Either of you wanna chat via Wii Speak Channel? (at least that (and everything else) lets me connect XD) --- "The internet: Slowly destroying the English language." - spitfire10189
It's okay. I'm actually gonna try DMZing the Wii real quick and try that way. If that fails, I probably will just start over... --- "The internet: Slowly destroying the English language." - spitfire10189
