I am being apologetic that's all!... not offending anyone!.
Is the lan connector a must for the patch to work? I am connecting (successfully) through a wireless access point and no matter how many times I try I am running into error 116
gunti...i was told error -116 is a connection problem. I cannot connect to any access points at my home. So i decided to buy a lan adapter, being i already have a ethernet line running from modem to my xbox anyway. If you need one check ebay. I purchased one for $14 shipped.

Did you have access to the settings on your wii and did you have to do anything else to your wii but connect the dongle. My wii is semi-bricked and I never set up for internet access before and I can't get into strtings to set up internet. Any thoughts.

What I found is that if WiiConnect 24 is active it seems to redirect the request back that server that returns an error and thus you get the ret-116 error. I know this was the problem because I have an active wifi connection that tested good several times. Finally I decided to disable WiiConnect and bingo got the hack up and running.
Hope this helps someone else.
reviving an old thread, but i found an easy fix for the error 116... if your wireless network has security enabled, disable it. after disabling my wpa2, ios ran fine
