    Unhappy 4.2e softmodded wii doesnt connect to net

    Ok here is the problem.
    Softmodded 4.2e wii no longer connectes to net either via wifi or wired connection.

    I thought it was my router and I tried everything to get it to work, and I mean EVERYTHING! Anyway today I got a friends wii console (unmodded) and tried to connect to my wifi... It is also v4.2e and it connects perfectly fine. Hook up my console again and I get the various errors indicating firewall issue or something... but nothing changed between hooking up friends box and my box... his works, mine doesnt. Only difference is mine is softmodded... I did have it working a few months back but now it wont connect no matter what i do... Its not the router or anything as friends box connects and works fine on same wifi with same router settings... its my wii or something on it...

    Suggestions as to what to do? Should I virginise the Wii and see if that resolves it?

    I'm having the same issue with a 4.2u Wii. I had it softmodded, but then wifi ceased to function and I virginized/reformatted it with no luck. I'm almost entirely sure the problem is NOT the wireless setup, and I haven't seen any kind of solution for this on the net.

    Softmodding (provided you followed a wiihacks Recommended Guide and not some other "fly by night" guide) doesn't affect your wireless connectivity. About the only thing I could suggest right off is do a syscheck --- steps on how to do so can be found here.

    I agree on principle but based on my own experience and from what I've read elsewhere it seems to be the only connection. One thing I've considered is that the use of Priiloader/startup hacks may have contributed to this. I don't know how I would reverse those now, however. Any thoughts?

    The same way you enabled them can be used to disable them. Make sure afterwards you save the changes.

    Thanks for advice so far... here is the results of a syscheck:

    Found 27 IOS on this consoleFound 10 IOS Stubs on this consoleIOS (revision)IOS4 (rev 65280)IOS9 (rev 778)IOS10 (rev 768)IOS11 (rev 256)IOS12 (rev 269)IOS13 (rev 273)IOS14 (rev 520)IOS15 (rev 523)IOS16 (rev 512)IOS17 (rev 775)IOS20 (rev 256)IOS21 (rev 782)IOS22 (rev 1037)IOS28 (rev 1550)IOS30 (rev 2816)IOS31 (rev 3349)IOS33 (rev 3091)IOS34 (rev 3348)IOS35 (rev 3349)IOS36 (rev 3351)IOS37 (rev 3869)IOS38 (rev 3867)IOS50 (rev 5120)IOS51 (rev 4864)IOS53 (rev 5406)IOS55 (rev 5406)IOS56 (rev 5405)IOS57 (rev 5661)IOS60 (rev 6400)IOS61 (rev 5405)IOS70 (rev 6687)IOS202 (rev 4)IOS222 (rev 4)IOS223 (rev 4)IOS249 (rev 17)IOS250 (rev 65535)IOS254 (rev 260)


    I have no idea what any of this means or what I am supposed to look for or what this actually tells me? So where to from here?
    I might add also that I took my Wii next door and tried to connect to their router (with correct passeord and all etc), and a no-go either with usual error codes... but their wii works fine on their router... so its definitely something on my Wii...
    Also I should add that I do have a WiiKey2 (solderless) installed initially which stopped working after an accidental system update, which is why I then softmodded the wii and now run off a USB hard drive using USB Loader GX (it was working ok for a while but now doesn't as per above). Would the WiiKey2 have anything to do with it? Should I remove it?

    I've remodded, and worked with both priiloader and startpatch but neither have produced results as far as getting the wii back online. Is there an IOS I can restore, or something, that might reverse this?

    Thanks for the info Mbrady... I havent touched mine yet still waiting for some advice from the pros here... It's almost like the WiFi card or chip or whatever on the wii is stuck on some setting that doesnt work and needs to be "reset" somehow or its memory cleared for it to work... Dont know if this is possible or not.

    I fixed mine.

    I went into the wireless settings and noticed someone changed mine from WPA-2 to WPA so I switched it back to WPA-2 and put my password for my router back in and poof it works again. Maybe it was changed on your guys ends also.

    May want to check on that
