Could a wireless internet connection affect a mod chip in a Wii?
My boyfriend bought a Wii and had a guy attach the mod chip to the motherboard of the Wii so he could play backed up games. He has been able to play backed up games for nearly two months now on his Wii without issue.
Recenly, he took his Wii to his father's house while we were out of town. His father has a wireless internet connection. We played Mario Party 8 (a purchased disk, not backed up) for about an hour. Later, his brother-in-law tried playing a backed up disk of The Godfather. The Wii didn't read it or any other game we tried.
NOW THE WII WON'T READ ANY DISKS AT ALL! Not even the official Nintendo games I have purchased.
Could the wireless connection affected the Wii? Having backed up disks of games you have purchased is perfectly legal, so I don't see how Nintendo could have "busted" him via the internet.
(He has tried the install disk for the mod chip several times, and didn't need it right after the mod chip was installed) What could it be? A bad chip?
