shop and mario kart connection
i've got a softmodded wii on 3.4 (i think) firmware. I can connect to the internet using wireless with everything apart from mariokart and shop. Is it true you need to be on 4.2 to be able to play online? I'm not sure what to do. My partner has checked firewall etc and the traffic is going out from the wii its just not getting a response from the Nintendo. Has anyone else had this problem?
You do not need to be 4.2 to play online or visit the shopping channel, depending on what version of shopping channel your on there is a update V18 and associated IOS61
I have had an issue connecting to nintendo the last couple of days, but all others work like yourself.
thanks. I tried the shop update thing but no change
Can't give you a definitive answer.
You should install NUSv18 and IOS61, I think you have.
That should give you the shopping channel.
As for Mario Kart, you should be able to play online with just the internet option, I have noticed if I want to play the Mario Kart competitions it asks me to connect WiiConnect24.
You also need WiiConnect24 for the news and weather channel.
Also if you are having issues with your WiFi try a lan adapter.

Thanks. I'll try installing them again later. I've enabled wii connect and it works for news and weather. If I try go to friends online it just gives a generic error but if i try a different option it says the problem is with wii connect. Wifi is fine for everything else
avtually, what did you mean by nus v18? I followed the channel update post that was put on a while ago
You can do the shop channel update. If not there are two wads you can install, IOS61 then RVL-Shopping-NUS-v18wad.
Which ever is easiest for you.
