So I can connect to the internet, and I can KIND of use it. But it just randomly chooses to not be connected, or be unable to find a wifi network.

I already tried manually changing my IP address and adding 10 to the last one.
(In this scenario the last digits are .66, so itd be 76..?)

And I changed the DNS to and

But it still just keeps losing connection randomly.
Like ill be using internet browser, and itll load a page flawlessly, then I click a link and im "not connected" anymore, then hit refresh and the page half-loads or something.

Any way to fix? Im trying to download the update but it keeps choosing to not be connected

Are you sure its not your internet connection? I have had this happen to me before when using my computer from wifi. Sometimes it just decides to give out. If you are using wifi do you have a 'main' computer that is set up with the whole connection and maybe a network? You might need to allow the Wii U to be on that network from that computer. It might think its an intruder or something.

Make sure you select the correct security type and set your router to mixed mode.

I'll bet that it's not your Wii U, but the router that's the problem.

It's the Wii U. I have this problem from time to time on Black Ops 2. It's not my network because my computer and other consoles have no issues.
