    Its been five days since I faced this problem.
    I can connect to the internet and surf the Wii shop channel and cast my votes in Everybody Votes channel but I can't connect to Nintendo Wi-fi service
    When I went to look up for this error code: 61070, it says the service is busy.
    Its the same also with my DS. I can't have an online match in any game.
    Could this be due to the huge amount of people trying to get online in SSBB [​IMG]
    Anybody having the same problem [​IMG]

    Actually I can't tell specifically cuz I live in University's dormitory. Maybe its Cisco router if I'm not mistaken but I'm not sure.
    As I said it used to work flawlessly before. [​IMG]

    From Where???
    The WIFI at university is set to secure. You need to find a non secure hotspot, like where people eat or hang out. WIFI in the buildings is usually password protected or requires that you set up your PC to accept the security ticket. You obviously can't do those on the WII. You would be better off walking over to the help desk and asking them what type of security they use on the WIFI network.

    There is a good chance that the WIFI is simply kicking users offline because of the amount of traffic. Try asking the help desk or just wait it out. Try to connect in other dorms, rooms, buildings around campus.

    That's really weird.
    It use to work without any problems.
    I tried in different places in my University but unfortunately I got the same error code.
    Could it be from Nintendo's Wi-Fi service itself or is it just from the connection here in my campus.
