    Finding that out myself.
    I tried scanning for my wi-fi router and tested the internet and it worked. But everytime I use an online feature like mii verse, eshop etc, it says couldn't connect to server. Anyone know how to fix that?
    And the most annoying problem is that the Wii U on the TV screen isn't fitting. I can't see a bit of the sides. When I updated my Wii U with Batman game, I adjusted the screen through the settings and now it looks like a smaller square in the tv screen. Please help :cry:

    Now, the Wii U detects the router but the test fails... Hewp

    Many error codes, depends on what software title you're playing.
    But I think it works now, though eshop is slow, is it always like that?


    Did that, the arrows on the left were a bit off screen.

    The WiiU has a brutally short Wifi range, try moving the router closer.

    I had the same error as you for a while. An "internet connection" but it failed to connect to anything.

    I guess so, Is there any way to get the Wii U to connect to the internet through wired media?

    Waldorf: I got a Wii U and the Wi-Fi just won't work. I have no idea what's wrong.
    Statler: Hmm, well, I know what the problem is.
    Waldorf: Really? What is it?
    Statler: You bought a Wii U in the first place!
    Both: DOHOHOHOHOHO!

    I had issues when I first got mine. Call Nintendo customer service they walk you through it step by step. It only took about five minutes to get it done.

    I know the issue, just restart the Wii U it happens to me sometimes. It will fail over and over again and will never connect until it restarts, hopefully it will be fixed with an update.
