    WiiConect24 is there somewhere in the options.

    Does your modem have wireless?

    I think it is under the Internet section. Try searching for it or read the manual.

    As for connecting your Wii to internet, there are 3 options:

    1. Connect using wireless, if you have a router of cos
    2. Connect using Nintendo Wi-Fi adapter, if yours is a wired modem.
    3. Connect using Nintendo Wii Lan adapter, if your modem is near your Wii


    P/S: Pls do not use caps in the forum.

    Click on the Wii circle on your system menu. Then choose Wii Settings (not data management). Press the right arrow once. WiiConnect24 is listed underneath Internet. As I recall, the option to enable/disable it isn't available unless you have an internet connection set up. Once you set one up, you can disable it.

    Also, if you get a wireless router, setting up your internet is as easy as clicking "wireless" under internet options, and letting the Wii find the connection on it's own. If you want to connect with a wire instead, you'll need to buy the LAN adapter (which is $20 I believe).

    Finally, you don't actually need to turn it off; it won't hurt you. Perhaps it will change in the next update, but as of 4.0, the Wii will still NOT update on it's own. You have to accept an update manually. So feel free to leave it up and running if you wish, so that your News and Weather channels etc keep updating properly.


    And to a few other posters in this thread: Lighten up! It's entirely possible that this guy bought his Wii used, and it didn't come with a manual. Everyone's so damn quick to bite here; it's ridiculous.

    He wasn't literally calling the Wii a game, he was using English slang. 'This game'='this lark', or 'this situation'

    Calm down chaps, who reads manuals for gawd's sake lol [​IMG]

    1) If you bothered to click my link above you would see it links to NINTENDO'S online help/faq/manual how to setup internet/use/turn on and off 24connect... same as whats written in the paper manual!

    2) Its rude for anyone/considered to be bad manners/netiquette to write on any forum in caps noobie or not!

    3) Don't tar everyone with the same brush! ......Some of us do actually post real help here!

    I know you do, kobykaan. As for the caps lock statement, you were just a little rough, that's all. This might be the guy's first time in a forum at all... who knows? But I was mostly referring to the comment by nicky041192, which was outright rude and uncalled for.

    Yes, he only has five post, cut him slack this time. Please leave the caps lock OFF. lol I wanted to add that you need to hold the power button in to get it to go to red, which turns the wii connect off while the console's fan insn't running. I had my old wii for a year and it burned up a week after using wii connect and keeping in stand-by (yellow light). This is just my suggestion, not everyone has had this problem, but I believe its a good idea.
