• Dual profile trick (only applies if you have never played online in this game)- If the game stalls on "please wait" when trying to connect, and you have already have accepted the shop channel user agreement
, you may have to exit out and create a second profile. Either use this second profile to connect, or once connected using it, exit out and return to using your initial profile. You should now be able to connect. (You will only have to do this one time, you may delete the secondary profile after connecting)
• Your game's region MUST
match the region of your console, otherwise you will not
be prompted to update, and you will not
be able to play online.
• Issues with "Lost connection to host" and "Migrating hosts"

Seems like black ops needs longer time out for TCP, other games donīt seem react to having short time out. Hope this helps some one else
• Can connect to the network but cant find any games - Some issues may be resolved by setting up Port Forwarding on your router. Black Ops requires you to forward the 80, 443, 3074-3075, 28910, 29900-29901, and 29920 ports. Alternatively you can set up your Wii to be in the DMZ of your router. Consult the manual or the website of your router's manufacturer for how to do this.
