I can't get on the wii shop channel

So whenever I try to go onto the wii shop channel I click start and then it brings me back to the start-up menu when you just turn the wii on. How do I fix this? Have I bought to many virtual console games and I can't buy any more or is it a problem with my wii and I have to get it repaired? The strange thing is when I do an internet connection test it works just fine and I can connect to the internet.

While it might be a problem with your console that may require a repair, try updating your console (4.2 is the latest firmware), as if you have an earlier firmware version, perhaps 4.0, you need to update it to access the Wii Shop.:)

Are you issued an error code and/or message when the connection fails?  If yes, please list the error code number and/or the exact text the error message said.

If updating doesn't work, I have had some strange errors like that but they usually repair themselves after it is shut down... IDK why but the system is all buggy. If it still doesn't work after you turn it off and on (after a five minute delay), then you may have to call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 (9am - 10pm est)

Out of curiosity, do you have anything plugged into the USB ports on the back of the system?  How about the Gamecube controller ports?
