    I've been able to play online on both games using USB Loader; there's no reason why it would be any different from a disc. Try a different online game and make sure your internet connection is working properly.

    lots of people seem to be having problems playing online with a backup from disc in th uk.it maybe the uk servers aren't working or it's the slow loading from the disc.are you playing from the us if you have a disc try it

    down under
    place the wii in a dmz via your router...

    Grand Slam Tennis needs to have certain ports forward/open to connect to
    games online - if the Wii is in a DMZ then that will work too!

    I'm in the UK and have had no problems at all playing GST online, via a USB loader. Haven't tried VT yet though.

    I posted a topic about this a few days ago. I'm from the UK and couldn't play online either.

    I was using the disk channel (cioscorp) to run it and the game was taking forever to load and then disconnecting just before a game would start.

    Decided to set up the USB loader and found that the load times were 100 times faster and now I have no online problems.

    BUT if you use the disk you can play against other people playing using a backup - presumably because they are loading as slow as you are.

    Hope that helps!

    installed ios rev13b then installed usb loader gx put grand slam tennis onto usb memory stick now works fine online will also try virtua tennis.so it can be confirmed that grand slam tennis won't play online from a disc i wonder if this wil be the first of many that won't play online from a disc.

    I believe you need cIOS rev12 or 13, though I'm not sre of whether USB loader or a disc backup is better. I'm having a problem connecting to the internet as well. I've got rev10 using backup discs, so not positive whats up with that.
