    Anyone else having connection issues on the Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?

    I couldn't even play a singe online race and I'm a day one buyer.

    I use wi-fi, watching eshop videos are fine, but the wifi indicator never reaches 3 bars.

    Yes, I have restarted the system several times.

    Also, my wi-fi works with my Playstation 4 well, multiplayer is great so maybe it's the Switch's problem?

    Do you guys have any tips or solutions? Do you have the same problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    I had those problems, the solution for me was a new router from my ISP so I could connect with NAT type B instead of type C. You can find your NAT type in the connection test under the menu Internet.
    Hope this solves it for you to.

    It could well be the Switch. First time I fired up MK8dlx I was having trouble connecting, which I couldn't explain.
    To test, I connected my WiiU with SSB and Splatoon, and those worked like a charm. What I then did was take out the Switch from the furniture it resides in, and put it closer to the modem (even though I think it was already close, just on the other side of the room). That seemed to solve it for me.
