Having generic problems
Not quite sure if this is the right forum but it's the closest I can find
Basically I'm having trouble with my Wii freezing up during downloading.
The Wii started with Firmware 3.1E and was upgraded (via sd card) to Firmware 3.2E with Starfall. Twilight Hack was used to install Homebrew channel.
The internet works fine in the normal channels and the Homebrew channel updater works without problems.
However any attempt to download large files i.e. via the Wii System Updater or from the Homebrew Browser causes the Wii to freeze. Homebrew Browser at 60% failure rate and the System Updater at 100% failure rate.
The router which is a WAG300N (b/g/pre-n) with 1.07 firmware says that the Wii disconnects from the wireless and anything other then a hard off/on doesn't cause a response from the Wii.
Since I'm not sure where I should be asking for help with this I'm asking more for generic advice on how I should proceed.
Thanks in Advance
Why would you want to download the Wii System Update? If you configured starfall to block updates, I bet its doing its job.
Also, download the Homebrew Browser on your PC.
Homebrew Browser - WiiBrew
Dump & Burn discs | 3.3 / 3.4 Firmware FYI | Wii Disassemble | WiiClip Install
Wii - 4.1U - WiiKey 2 - USBLoader GX - SNES9X GX, Genesis Plus GX, FCE GX w. cover flow mods
360 - Resident Evil S.E. - iXtreme LT 1.1 - JTag - FreeBoot 0.032 9199 Dash - NXE2GOD, XM360, XeXMenu 1.1, Flash360
PSP - CFW 5.00m33, 16GB MSPD | DS Lite - DSTT w.1.17a r12, 8GB SDHC
I would like to be able to download things with my Wii in general without the Wii locking up.
For example so I can actually install things with the Homebrew Browser
Starfall blocks updates from discs inserted into the Wii not from the system menu.
Also I have tried disabling starfall and it has no effect
(I'm only using it has a test case I don't really want to update my Wii's firmware)
Still looking for solution
it downloads things, and puts them in a folder in the apps, with the .dol named boot, nothing else

When I use the homebrew browser to download applications the wii just locks up solid at about 80% chance.
The wii doesn't respond and the router says it's no longer a active wireless client etc...
I have no interest in installing another firmware (and I can do that anyway.... by copying it to a sd card and installing it that way)
well, it sounds like a router issue, try getting a new browser or doing it manually
Yeah most likely the case
Can't ftp large files to it either
Most likely I just need to go buy a cheap usb wireless dongle to communicate with it
Homebrew freeze up
Whenever I try to download an emulator (or anything else) from the Homebrew channel, the screen freezes as soon as i click "download". I'll note that i recently softmodded using the hack pack for firmware 4.2.
