    If it originally came with 3.4 it should be an older Wii and therefore support bootmii as boot2...

    What country do you live in?

    Sweden and I was a bit surprised but I just followed what the installer told me.... can you try to install it as BOOT2 even if it was otherwise?

    No, if the Wii has boot1 fixed, you can never install bootmii as boot2.

    Only thing I can suggest short of sending it to someone would be try swapping the wifi module.

    I have never seen a wifi module dying. Probably just a low level brick. Can happen just like that. Have seen examples just after running Mario kart for a while and then poof... Dead wii.
    Best thing is flashing back your nand...
    Do you have a gamecube controller? You can try to get into rescue menu

    I've had several dead Wifi modules and several people who have bought replacement boards from me claiming I sent them a dead board, then only to find out it worked after swapping the Wifi module.

    savemii/savemiifrii doesnt work when its Wifi either, it just looks like a low level brick.

    Best way to diagnose Wifi module is restore working nand backup (as you can still get into bootmii), if it still doesn't work but the remote still turns the Wii on, then its the Wifi module.

    Edit: Try this first -- Power on your Wii, press A and then you can verify that there are two devices connected to your router (1 - PC and 2 - Wii) by going into your router settings and look at the list of attached devices. If you see two attached devices then your WIFI card is working.


    You can also try this....

    1. Turn off all devices connected to your router and power down and power back up your router
    2. Boot up a PC connected to your router and wait for it to boot completely.
    3. Then on the pc go to start/run type in cmd and press enter. At command prompt type ipconfig and press enter. Note the IP address for your PC. (e.g. 192.168.1.2)
    4. Turn on your Wii and press A to get past the health screen. (even though you can't see it)
    5. Then go back to the pc and go to start/run type in cmd and press enter. At command prompt type ping and the next sequential IP address. (e.g. ping 192.168.1.3)

    If it successfully pings the Wii's ip address then you do not have a bad WIFI card and we can situate your problem from there.

    with the wii being completely black screened the 2 situations would most likely be:

    Wifi module - not going to be able to ping it
    screwed up nand/ios/system menu - Wii isnt going to get an IP etc as that is handled by the system menu/etc not just providing power to the module.

    So I don't think that will work.

    The only situation your idea would detect would be the GPU or AV encoder.. i.e. the system menu is working but nothing is being displayed - and only if the wifi was synced before everything happened and the key has stayed the same.

    You might be right but it's worth a shot. Maybe some other hardware fail not the wifi. Either way, he can't access bootmii to check.

    I think he either has to try that or get a new wifi module like you said. Might as well try it as it won't cost anything... Start with the most basic first right?

    I totally agree.

    I do not think it will find what it seems like his problem is. But on the plus side, if he tries what you suggest and he can ping it, it would at least change the focus.

    If the wifi module is bad, AFAIK savemiifrii should bring up the recovery menu.
