NOTE: This guide only applies to people who once had an internet connection but is now either not available or not always available when it's not connected you have to do this! For weeks now I've had a problem: My External Hard Drive is supposidly compatible with USB Loaders, many people have confirmed that. All the games I used all are compatible with USB Loaders. But they crash for me after a couple of minutes of starting up. I have a few games that don't crash but the majority do crash. I was getting really Annoyed so I reinstalled everything and still crashed. Then I found out that, the games worked only when the internet (LAN Adapter) is hooked up to my wii. when ever it wasn't plugged in the games crashed. If you're experiencing the same problem as me all you have to do is: 1. Startup your Wii 2. Go to Wii Options (Bottom Left) 3. Wii settings 4. Go to Internet and simply clear all settings And that is all there was to it!!! Now my games don't crash (apart from like uncompatable ones of course) I know it's so simple but alot of people have had this problem 5. If you want to use the internet again just re set the settings I CAN STILL USE THE INTERNET ON MY WII, I JUST HAVE TO CLEAR THE SETTINGS WHEN UNPLUGGED!
