Wii will NOT update

I'm connected wirelessly to the internet.  Everything on my wii will connect to the internet but it just won't update.  I've tried all channels on my wireless router, I've tried erasing and reconnecting the wii connection, I even went back through some of the tutorials on the nintendo sight.  All which kept the internet connection live. But none that got my wii to update.  I've been able to update in the past. But now I can't, I don't get it.  How can I get it to update? Any help on this matter would be much appreciated! Thanks.

Re: Wii will NOT update

Direct from Ninty's Support. l l


Error Code: 32007

There was a problem downloading the latest Wii update.

Please check the following:

  1. Our servers may be down temporarily or experiencing a  high amount of network traffic, especially after a new update has become  available. Wait a few hours and try again. If you are still receiving  this error after waiting, check the next steps.
  2. Satellite Internet often causes this Error  Code. You must have a cable or DSL internet connection. Other connection  types, such as dial-up and satellite, are typically not compatible.  Contact your Internet Service Provider if you are not sure what type of  internet connection you have.
  3. Does your internet service provider (ISP) require that you  log in whenever you wish to use the internet? If so, your ISP may not be  compatible with the Wii console. Please contact your ISP for additional  information.

If you are still unable to connect, and have waited a few hours, please try the following:

How are you attempting to connect your Wii console online?

    #Wireless Router:


  1. Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts                 on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either                 channel 1 or 11. Be sure to try both channels if the first one                 you try does not work. This can potentially increase the download                 speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click                 here to select the brand name and model number of your router                 (if available). (The "Channel" setting is typically                 found in the "Wireless" section of your router's setup                 utility.)


  3. If adjusting the "Channel" did not work, please review our "Slow             Download Times or Errors Received While Connecting" troubleshooting             tips by clicking here.


  5. Are you using a Netgear brand wireless router? Our expeirence               shows disabling the "SPI Firewall" of the router may               help the connection. The "SPI Firewall" option is typically found               under the "WAN Setup" tab of the router's settings. For               information on accessing your router's settings, please click               here and select               the model of the Netgear router you own (if available).

  1. #Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector


  3. Does your PC have  any security programs (firewall, anti-virus,                anti-spyware, anti-adware, etc.) installed? If you are using the                Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, and have a software firewall or other                computer security program installed on your computer, there may                be additional steps you must complete to allow a successful connection.                
    • "Trusted" Applications:
      If your firewall or PC security program keeps a list of trusted applications   (also known as a "trusted zone"), the following programs are installed with   the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, and require internet communications. If prompted   by your firewall or PC security program, add these to the list of trusted applications.   This information may also apply to certain computer security applications,   such as anti-virus, anti-spyware, etc.:

      • Nintendo Wi-Fi Connector USB (NintendoWFCReg.exe)
      • Setup.exe (when installing the USB Connector)
      • SoftAPInstDrv.bin
      • mdriver.exe
  4. If you are using a router, you may need to temporarily disable the router's   firewall to allow the Wii console to connect online and receive a system update.   Once the update is received, you can turn the firewall back on. For information   on locating and disabling your router's firewall, please consult the router's   manual or contact the manufacturer of the router.

I'm sorry to hear you are continuing to have issues getting the update. Since you are still experiencing a connection issue after trying the troubleshooting steps available on our website, I would recommend contacting our Consumer Service office so a tech can troubleshoot the issue further.

Re: Wii will NOT update

I am having the same problem.  I can get into the weather and news channels... I can play online, everything like that will work, but my system won't update.  I need to get into my wii shop channel to download the netflix software since we just signed up with them, but it wont let me until the update happens.  I tried calling technical support this morning.  After talking with them for over an hour and even speaking with an "advanced technician" they couldn't solve my problem.  Any more ideas?

Re: Wii will NOT update

Maybe their is something wrong with your internet connection that wont let your wii connect to it to update. If you tried fixing your router call your internet provider.
