I just saw on another site that if I had not done anything significant to the wii like installing a wad or anything like that then the bluetooth or the wifi might have gone bad. We established already that the wiimote turns on the wii so its not the bluetooth. Do you think that its probably the wifi or does this sound like nonsense?
Wifi is possible, but they dont break often.
I sell 5x more bluetooth modules than Wifi.
I get about the same ratio with damaged bluetooth to damaged Wifi on broken Wii's too.
