    Well, this one has me baffled. I consider myself to be rather tech savvy, but I can't figure out what's going on here. My newly developed problem is this: I'll sign onto WFC, select my character and kart, be assigned to a group of other racers, then sent to watch the current race before mine comes up. After that race concludes, however, it just says "waiting..." for a minute before saying "you have been disconnected from the other players".

    Yes, it's a legitimate, retail purchased disc. I haven't made any recent changes to the Wii or my internet settings/router, etc. I haven't altered anything that, in my mind, should be causing this to happen. What's bizarre is that obviously I can still connect to WFC, as I can get assigned to a race, but then it always craps out on me before I actually get to play. It worked fine for months, then it just stopped. Any ideas? Thanks!

    You could be maxing out your upload traffic. Stop any torrents or uploads if you have any and see if that fixes it. That would be my best guess.

    I'm getting a similar thing, its worked for months, then i stopped playing mario kart for a few months go back try it cant get it to connect ever right as the race starts it boots me everytime, whether i play with friends or just random people, or 1-2 players. And it does it whether i boot from the game disc or USB loader exact same thing, brawl and other online games work fine, and i dont have torrents or anything else using bandwith for that matter so i know thats not the problem, anyone have any ideas?

    Edit: Unless its a wireless issue, my isp does kinda suck but i should still be able to play online games, im using a linksys router maybe thats the problem? I've checked around found nothing
