    I have tried following guides on youtube but i cant seem to get my laptop to connect to my wii u.

    Has anyone got their wii u configured to apply codes via pc/laptop.

    if so can i ask if you can link or provide your files because im thinking i have the wrong apps/files.

    All you need is the latest TCPGecko homebrew app on your SD Card, the location of TCPGecko should look like this -


    Then launch TCPGecko from Homebrew Launcher, select the option that doesn't include SD Cheats. Before you choose an option, take note of the IP Address at the top, you will need that IP to connect to your WiiU.

    Then after your at the main menu, launch the game you want. Some games it is better to load into the game by loading your saved game, and wait a few more seconds for the world to load completly.

    Then on your computer download and run the latest JGeckoU, and type in the IP Address you got from TCPGecko at the bottom and click connect.

    After its connected you can add and send codes to the game that's running on your WiiU.

    If you have any problems, post here and I'll help you. Just try to give detailed explanations on what happend exactly, what you tried, and any error messages you may have received when the problem occurred.

    Because I cannot help you the best I can if I don't know where to start troubleshooting.
