I've received several error messages over the course of the day, and was finally able to get my Wii U consistently connected to the internet, but I'm still coming across several errors. Miiverse showing a simplified text-formatted forum; pages not loading correctly in the browser; but the most infuriatingly annoying is the eShop not loading up. It either gives me error 111-9000, saying "An unexpected error has ocurred. The software will now close." or sometimes another error that says something along the lines of "Unable to load page." I'm just wondering how widespread this issue is, and if it is something that is fixable either through a system patch or something else before I either return it to the store or Nintendo.
Okay, it took several tries, but I was able to get the other error message that pops up aside from 111-9000. This one is 111-1056, saying "Could not display page." before booting me out.
I got this error trying to download Trine 2 after paying for it. I started the download, and then closed it to do a video chat, thinking it would keep downloading in the background. Turns out it stopped the download, so I started it again. Then it got to about 33% and then this error came up and now I can't resume the download or do anything to get the game that I paid for. Pretty annoying.
Thank God someone else is having this issue. I do feel bad that you are, but at least I know its not just me. This and the Miiverse problems have been driving me nuts. I was on the phone with customer service yesterday and they had me switch my console country from US to Canada and it fixed it while I was on the phone with the representative. But right after I got off the phone and tried to go back in the same errors occurred. I mostly get the 111-9000 error, but also the other error with not being able to load the page. Miiverse is also very spotty for me and sometimes will get hung up loading. I think all things online related are a big issue right now for Nintendo and they need to get some information out to the community fast. Have you found a way to resolve this 111-9000 error?
Unable to find your specific error code. Please search your Wii U error code again, making sure to enter it exactly as it appears.
If you are still unable to locate troubleshooting for your specific error code, below is a list of troubleshooting steps that resolve most home network connection issues:
I, also, have been getting 111-9000 and 111-9001 while trying to access eShop on Wii U. Every once in a while it will give an unable to connect to the internet, but that is very infrequent. Would like to know how to get that resolved. At least my freezing issues have been resolved.
So I figured out what the problem was with the Error 111-9000 code. What actually was the problem was the power to the Wii U. I recently bought an extra power supply unit. (those things with extra outlets) and when i had the wii u plugged into it..I noticed my Netflix wasn't working and the Eshop wasn't working either. Thus getting the error code message. So I tried messing with the internet and nothing seemed to work. So I took out the extra power supply unit and plugged the Wii U directly into the home outlet and everything was perfect again. And just to check that it wasn't some freak lucky fix I tried it again with the extra power supply unit and sure enough it wouldn't work. So if you have your Wii U plugged into some extra outlet remove it and try a home outlet. If that doesn't work then you're not getting enough power to your console
Hope this helped.
I also may post a video on youtube on how to fix it because there is literally no information anywhere on how to actually fix this problem.

It is NOT an issue with power supply for your Wii U or anything on your side. Error 111-9000 has to do with Nintendo's servers being overloaded due to high traffic on the eShop, usually when new games/content are released. You may see the error code 007-2100 at the same time on your 3DS when trying to access the eShop there. You'll just have to wait it out and try again later.
