Thanks for the help, but I connected this way and everything works except for posting in game pics to miiverse. I always get an error code saying I'm not connected to the Internet, but everything else works. Anyone have this problem or a solution?

This works for me but only maybe 1 in every 3 times i try so if i want to get a clean signal(for system updates or downloads) i go downstairs where i can be closer to the router. I want to set up another router on my floor then bridge the two routers but don't know if that's the best to go.

This FAQS is only useful for wireless connections.

What about if you are using a Lan connection?

I tried this, but the ipconfig thing doesn't seem to bring up the correct information. This doesn't seem right to me.

I don't think you have to do anything special if you opt to go wired. Just connect the Wii U to your router via Ethernet cables and you should be good to go. Maybe you'll have to go into the Wii U settings to specify that you're using a wired connection, but that's about it, as far as I know.

Once thing to note is that you'll need the USB Wii LAN Adapter, because the Wii U doesn't have any Ethernet ports on it. I ordered it from Nintendo's website many years ago, but I'm not sure if they still offer it.

Okay, I followed the original post, but I'm still getting constant error messages and disconnections. The connection test always works perfectly and right away, but I haven't been able to connect to Miiverse or the eShop basically all day. I've had my Wii U for a few days, and didn't really encounter many issues until today too. This is incredibly frustrating. I don't have a problem with signal strength with any of my other devices, so I don't understand. Heck, even the update that was available today downloaded with little to no issue.
